Yakasobi, Yakawho?!

My mother makes a dish called “Yakasobi.” Not sure if that’s the correct name or correct spelling, but that’s what we’ve always called it. It’s great for when you want to change your normal stir-fry routine.


  • Lean ground meat (beef, chicken, turkey, or venison – whatever you prefer)
  • One package of Raman Noodles (any flavor, but I prefer Oriental Flavor for this recipe)
  • Chopped Cabbage (1/4 or 1/2 a head of cabbage is good is cooking for 2 -3 people)
  • Chopped White Onion (1/2 a cup is good, just depends on how much you prefer)
  • Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Hot Sesame Oil* optional

You can add any other veggies to this if you don’t like cabbage.


  1. Brown meat in a wok or skillet
  2. Add the Raman seasoning packet to the meat
  3. Cook Raman noodles according to directions on packet (boil in water for 3 minutes or so)
  4. Remove meat from wok.
  5. In wok, put a little olive oil (tsp), liquid aminos (to taste – start out with a tsp or 2) and sesame oil (to taste) and stir-fry the cabbage and onion.
  6. Once you have them to the texture you like (I prefer crispy so I just stir-fry until the onion is clear), add meat and noodles.
  7. Stir-fry until all ingredients are mixed and seasoned evenly. Add liquid aminos to taste.

If any of you try this and come up with a really good addition or variation to this recipe, let me know! It’s pretty easy and a unique spin on stir-fry.
