It takes about 10 minutes, including preparation. I used commercial yakisoba noodles for three people at once.

With a frying pan, it takes much effort to fry all the ingredients including vegetables, and loosen the noodles. But with the Hot Cook, you can just leave everything. The noodles and other ingredients are deliciously made with this recipe.

I put cabbage, pork belly, bean sprouts, and seasonings into the pot in that order.

When I finished putting everything in, the volume was so much that it almost overflowed the pot. So, I was a little worried about whether I would be able to cook it properly. But it turned out to be OK!

I recommend using pork belly and a little olive oil (or salad oil).

It is not necessary to add water. The water from the cabbage and bean sprouts will fry the noodles just fine.

Of course, you can use the “powdered sauce” that comes with commercial yakisoba noodles, but this time I seasoned the noodles with the seasonings of my recipe. It is delicious, so please give it a try.

I made it for 3 servings (3 balls of noodles), but if you want to make it for 1 or 2 servings, adjust the amount of ingredients and seasonings proportionally. However, you can still use the same “5 minutes” for the cooking time in the Hot Cook.

I plan to use the “powdered sauce” that comes with the store-bought yakisoba noodles, which I did not use on another occasion.

I will publish another article when I make it!

This “yakisoba” is made in a fluorine-coated inner pot of the Hot Cook. Stir-fry dishes are also done well without sticking to the bottom of the pot.

Please consider purchasing one if you do not have a fluorine-coated inner pot!
