Yakisoba, literally grilled (yaki) noodles (soba), is a super popular street food snack or quick and easy lunch. Don’t worry, we’ll be sharing the full recipe for Yakisoba next week so you can get your munch on. 😀

But first things first, let’s nail the sauce!

This Homemade Yakisoba Sauce recipe is pretty similar to other Japanese sauces like tonkatsu or okonomiyaki sauce.

The difference is they’re made with different ratios of similar ingredients, so their overall flavours suit their intended foods.

Let me tell you. Your Homemade Yakisoba Sauce is going blow any standard bottled sauce out of the water, because you can tweak the flavour to suit your taste.

Want a little more acidity? Add a little extra rice vinegar.

Need it a little sweeter? Try another drop of hoisin, or an extra sprinkle of sugar.

Mix and taste and mix some more.

Just make sure you save some for your dish, okay?

Now, this homemade sauce isn’t just amazing for Yakisoba…

You can pair it with other Japanese recipes like takoyaki (golden fried octopus balls) and okonomiyaki (‘as you like it’ savoury pancakes).

Or you can pair it with anything that needs a little help from Asian-style salty ‘n sweet goodness. Try it as a dressing on meats like steak, pork or chicken, slather it over oysters, or toss it around with your own stir-fry creations.

Of course you can even add it to omu-soba (omelette wrapped around yakisoba) or yakisoba-pan (yakisoba served in a fresh bread roll).

Just follow your taste-buds people. 😉

Homemade Yakisoba Sauce Recipe

Now, this Yakisoba Sauce Recipe is even more convenient if you’re vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free minded.

You can easily work within these diets by being a little selective with your ingredients.

Try substituting ingredients like oyster sauce for vegan shiitake ‘oyster’ sauce, and opt for a gluten free soy sauce, etc.

Can’t do that with a store-bought sauce now, can you?
