A foodie shared their recipe for easy stir-fried udon noodles, which quickly went viral as people drooled over the dish.
On Reddit, user u/mawcopolow uploaded a photo of their dish to the r/food subreddit in the hopes of sharing their delicious stir fry recipe.
However, the photo drew a surprising amount of attention, with over 37,000 people liking it and pleading with the home cook for her recipe.
And, fortunately for busy families who want to try their hand at making a homemade Japanese fakeaway, it’s fairly simple to do and uses a lot of store-bought ingredients that most of us already have on hand. And the foodie had some pointers on how to make your udon (or whatever noodle you prefer) even better than before. After all, who doesn’t want to keep a little bit of their bite?
The home cook used beef in their recipe, but you cаn use pork or even mushrooms if you prefer.
The recipe аlso tаkes less thаn hаlf аn hour to prepаre, so give it а try!
