‘Buta’ means ‘Pig’ OR ‘Pork’ in Japanese. This is a Udon Noodle version of the popular ‘Buta Don’ (Pork Rice Bowl). It is extremely simple to make, yet it is delicious, and better than take away stir-fried noodles. The Egg Yolk is optional but highly recommended. The Egg Yolk would be slightly cooked by the heat of hot Udon Noodles and Pork, and creates a yummy sauce.
