  • 1 Chopping board
  • 1 Knife
  • 1 Mini whisk
  • 1 Small jug
  • 1 Large fry pan
  • 1 Silicon flat utensil


  • 2 tbp peanut oil
  • 400 grams beef thinly sliced, Note 1
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 6 green onions ends trimmed, white onion part
  • 1 cup carrots peeled and cut into thin strips
  • 400 grams udon noodles Note 2

Beef Yaki Udon Sauce

  • 2 tablespoon oyster sauce Note 3
  • 1 ½ tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce Note 4
  • 1 tbs mirin
  • 2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar


  • Make sauce: use a small ug to combine and whisk the sauce ingredients. Set aside.
  • Cook beef: heat 2 tbs peanut oil in fry pan at high heat, add beef and cook till browned, then remove from pan.
  • Cook vegetables: use the same pan to stir fry the vegetables for 2 to 3 mins.
  • Cook noodles: according to the packet instructions, drain, then add to the cooked vegetables.
  • Add beef: add cooked beef back to the pan, pour sauce over and stir fry till dish is heated through.
  • Serve: portion into bowls, garnish with chopped green onions (optional) and serve with chopsticks.


  • Note 1 - Beef:  I am using sizzle steak. It is a very think cut and cooks quickly. This or stir fry beef strips work well. You can also use beef mince or ground beef.
  • Note 2 - Udon Noodles: these will be in the fridge section or Asian food aisle (sometimes even the freezer at the Asian grocery store). Try a few different brands to find your favourite and cook according to the instructions on the packet.  
  • Note 3 - Oyster Sauce: You can use hoisin as a substitute if you have it but not oyster. 
  • Note 4 - Dark Soy Sauce: this is a different ingredient to regular (sushi style) soy sauce. It is what makes the noodles turn the colour they end up. We only need a little as a little goes a long way. It will be sold where you find soy sauce and have written on the label 'dark soy sauce'. It is not transparent at all, whereas sometimes regular soy sauce looks to be light brown.
