      Good.

      Thankfully, I read the other reviews prior to making the dish. I was able to manage the "watery" issue by keeping the lid off at times, and making the noodles "very al-dente" (allowing them to further cook in the liquid of the pan). I also gave the pork a little soy maranade.

      My wife wanted more vegetables, my daughters loved the noodles, and I wanted more meat. Imagine that?

      I give this a solid 4 stars with forthcoming meals makings slight changes to increase flavor. I bought precut cabbage, and thin sliced pork which I then cut into strips. Made the dish much easier. Also bought shredded carrots. The only thing I had to chop / cut was the ginger, onion and some added baby bok choy.

      It was a good experience for my first time making yakisoba. I look forward to trying to make it better.

      Great
      I substitute carrots with broccoli (which imo tastes great with soy sauce)

      Everyone loved it! I agree that I could have cooked the noodles a little less. Had trouble finding rice wine, so I substituted what sherry I could find at the store. Looking forward to heading to the Asian market and picking up the real stuff. Used crushed ginger paste from a tube as well.
