Beef Yaki Udon
Deliciously chewy udon noodles bring satisfying texture to this quick-fix bowl. It's said yaki udon came about after the second World War, when the soba noodles usually used in this dish were unavailable. The texture of the substituted noodle became a hit and yaki udon is now a much-loved dish in izakayas (bars) across Japan. Tossed with teriyaki beef and boosted with zucchini and spinach, this humble dish punches well above.
