Dinner’s ready in 20 minutes with this super Easy Udon Noodle Stir-Fry! This recipe is from fellow food blogger Emily Dingmann with A Nutritionist Eats. Emily’s take on this dish: Stir-fries are the answer for quick and healthy dinners and this one is SO good. It’s a flavorful noodle bowl that tastes like take-out AND is packed with protein and fresh vegetables.
Udon noodles – let’s talk about them! So you may have had them out, but chances are that you’ve never cooked with them. (At least I hadn’t until now.) Udon noodles are a Japanese wheat-based noodle. I love them because they are thick and have a great chewy texture and because they are frequently found fresh, you don’t even have to boil water, just throw right into the stir fry.
For this easy udon noodle stir-fry we’re going to quickly sauté some ground pork with mushrooms and Napa cabbage, and then an easy sauce. It’s another meal that includes all of the components I always go for (protein, veggies, flavor, starch!) in one bowl. Dinner’s ready in 20 — let’s get to it!
Ground pork and lots of fresh veggies are stir-fried and tossed with thick Udon noodles for this delicious bowl of everything!
Dinner is on the table in just 20 minutes with this super easy and flavorful Udon Noodle Stir-Fry dish!
- Peel and mince the ginger and garlic. Wash shiitake mushrooms with a wet paper towel and thinly slice. Slice the Napa cabbage.
- Heat a large pan (biggest you have!) over medium-high heat and add oil to pan once hot. Add the ground pork and cook for about 3 minutes, breaking up meat with back of a wooden spoon. Add in the garlic and ginger and stir-fry for another 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add mushrooms and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add cabbage, noodles, soy sauce, sesame oil, and fish sauce. Toss with tongs to combine well. If your pan is TOO full, cover for about a minute to help the cabbage wilt down.
- Top the noodles with green onions and sambal oelek. Serve immediately.
