It’s time to make the yakisoba-pan your next go-to late night drunk dish.
Place a wok over high heat and pour in 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Sauté 1 onion (thinly sliced), stir for two minutes. Add 1 carrot (sliced into match sticks) and sauté for another minute. Then, add sliced red and green bell peppers and sauté for about 30 seconds. Turn off heat and set aside.
In a separate small pot, boil water and cook the noodles according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.
Prepare yakisoba sauce
Meanwhile, make the yakisoba sauce by combining 4 tablespoons oyster sauce, 2 tsp soy sauce, 1 tsp brown sugar, and 1 tsp sesame oil. Whisk well until combined.
Add another tablespoon of vegetable oil to the same wok and turn the heat back on high. Once the wok becomes hot, add the drained noodles and stir. Then, add the yakisoba sauce to the wok and stir well. Make sure the sauce coats the noodles and vegetables entirely.
Assemble the sandwich
Pile the hot noodles into a sliced hot dog bun and top with pickled ginger, dried seaweed (optional), and a spoonful of yakisoba sauce. Serve hot.
