How to Cook Sara Udon, Japanese Crispy Deep-fried Noodles with Stir-fried Vegetable And Thick Soup

      Today, my husband and I purchased the instant sara udon noodles at a Japanese supermarket in the U.S., and he cooked this sara udon for dinner tonight! As you might know udon is Japanese thick white noodle dish, but Sara udon is not regular udon. Sara udon (皿うどん) is Japanese crispy deep-fried noodle dish topped with stir-fried vegetable and thick soup. It is a regional cuisine of Nagasaki prefecture in Japan. If you have never tried sara udon before, you really should tried it! It's very easy to cook and so delicious! You can find instant sara udon set at most Japanese supermarkets. :)
Instant Sara Udon Noodles
Ingredients (2 Servings)
1 Package of Instant Sara Udon Noodles ( It had two servings of noodles and soup powder.)
your favorite vegetables
your favorite meat or pork
10 oz of water
Two Hard Boiled Eggs (Optional)

     It usually has the instruction in Japanese on the back of the package, but I'm going to share how to cook sara udon with you. :)

 1. Take crispy fried noodles out of the package, and place them on plates. By the way, this instant sara udon package had two servings of noodles.

2. Stir-fry your favorite vegetables and meat or seafood. Tonight, he cooked cabbages, carrots, shitake mushroom, green onions and pork. 

3. Mix the sara udon soup powder with water (1 pack of powder with 5 oz of water). He cooked two servings of sara udon, so he mixed two packs of powder with 10 oz of water. Then, add mixture to the stir-fried vegetable. 

4. Simmer it until soup has thickened. 

5. Serve stir-fried vegetables over crispy noodles. He topped it with hard boiled eggs. Enjoy!
