To make yakiudon with furikake, you'll need the following ingredients:


  • 8 ounces udon noodles
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms (such as shiitake or cremini)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
  • 1 tablespoon furikake seasoning
  • Optional toppings: sliced green onions, sesame seeds

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to prepare yakiudon with furikake:

  1. Cook the udon noodles according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.
