Japanese Udon Noodles PDF Print E-mail
Written by early_liberty   
     Udon noodles are obtained in most Asian markets, and are becoming available in larger grocery stores.  Not to be confused with the thinner dry Ramen noodles, Udon is a thick  soft noodle that comes precooked in packets available in various flavors: chicken, pork, mushroom, oriental, spicy, etc. 

    They store well and only require a quick heating, either in water (most packs come with a small packet of flavoring and can be used as a soup), or can be quickly sauted in the same pan that steak, hamburgers, chicken, etc have been cooked in.  They will pick up the flavor of whatever the meat drippings in the pan contain, and heat up in about a minute.  Makes for a very easy side dish!

     If there is not enough pan drippings, deglase the pan with a little wine, broth or water,  add a pat of butter, and heat the noodles in this sauce.

Oh My God, why dont more people make noodles like these. It took a while to find a place to buy these noodles but now I have a good local Asian grocer that I can obtain them from. I cant wait to try making spegetti with these big noodles.
