I usually stock already cooked Udon noodles (frozen/vacuum-packed) and they are just perfect for one-person lunch. They only need to be warmed and loosened. While you are warming the Udon Noodles, you can cook this spicy pork. It’s quick, easy and yummy as always.


2 Servings


Udon 2 servings
Pork 200 to 250g *thinly sliced, can be Beef or Chicken
Salt 1 pinch
Potato Starch Flour 1 tablespoon or more
Sesame Oil / Canola Oil 1 teaspoon

Sauce Ingredients

Garlic 1 clove *grated
Ginger 1 small piece *grated
Spring Onion 2 to 3 *finely chopped
Soy Sauce 2 tablespoons
Mirin 2 tablespoons
Water 3 to 4 tablespoons
Toban Djan (Chili Bean Sauce) 1 to 2 teaspoons
Sugar 1 to 2 teaspoons *optional, only if you like the sauce sweeter
Toasted Sesame Seeds 1 tablespoon

  1. Cook OR warm Udon Noodles as instructed, then drain well.
  2. Place all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix.
  3. Slice Pork steak(s) or a block of Pork as thin as you can. Give 1 pinch of Salt and massage, sprinkle Potato Starch over and coat the pork slices with it. This layer of starch will turn to jelly-like when combined with the sauce.
  4. Heat Oil in a frying pan and cook Pork until nicely browned. Add the sauce and stir to combine well.
  5. Place drained warm Udon Noodles in a bowl, cover with the pork mixture and enjoy!
