Stir Fry Noodles Yakisoba

A little while ago, one of our visitors made a comment about how they inadvertently ended up making a yakisoba from our Asian Crack Slaw recipe.  That comment inspired us to actually seek out and create a full on Japanese low carb stir fry noodles, aka yakisoba, recipe for everyone to enjoy!

For those that are not familiar with yakisoba, it literally translates to fried noodles, and that’s pretty much the base of it.  You could think of it as Japanese Stir Fry Noodles.  It’s cooked along with cabbage, shiitake mushrooms, beef, onions and served with yakisoba sauce.

Japanese style stir fry noodles yakisoba served on a plate topped with fresh red ginger beni shoga being picked up with a pair of chopsticks.

The real special part of this dish though is that it’s the staple food of Japanese festivals and no summer festival would be complete without an offering of this delicious dish!

But for us being carb conscious, we had to make some modifications on the traditional recipe to be able to enjoy this dish.

Like most stir fry dishes, it’s really easy to make as the bases of the stir fry is to just throw ingredients into a frying pan while stirring and cooking.  So we start by getting all the ingredients ready and prepared for easy access.

Next is to make the yakisoba sauce which consists of a Monkfruit Erythritol Blend, Soy Sauce, Oyster Sauce, Sugar-Free Ketchup,  and Worcestershire Sauce mix.

Once everything is prepared, we begin with cooking the onions with meat, which traditional is beef but you can use chicken, pork or even shrimp if you prefer.  After the meat is cooked, we simply throw in the rest of the vegetables along with the sauce, give it a nice mix and you’re all done!

The end result is a recipe that we feel still maintains the authentic slightly sweet soy sauce flavor bursting with tangy umami taste of yakisoba while cutting down the carbs!  Hope you enjoy it!

  1. Cool! One question, we don’t have to pre-boil the shirataki?

  2. I see this recipe is for a single serving, but a whole 8-oz pack of shirataki noodles seems like a lot for one person. Am I reading this right? Should I prepare 32 oz shirataki noodles when making this for my family of 4? Thanks in advance! I look forward to trying it!

      Hello KT! 8 oz is definitely a big single serving that can be split into 2 servings for more of a medium appetite. We just went with a bigger serving as traditional Japanese yakisoba is usually a pretty big serving. Hope that answers your question!
