READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by hokiegal

My Mom and I created this after being stationed in Japan and eating Yakisoba from the street vendors. This is not exactly the same-but a good substitute

Warning this could be addicting! DH and I just wanted something simple for dinner tonight and this was perfect. I doubled the recipe, added 1 lb of ground pork and saved some of the noodle cooking liquid to add a little extra flavor. I had visions of having leftovers for breakfast, - it's gone not a single noodle left.
