2 (12 ounce) packages

1 (9 ounce) package
fresh udon noodles
I liked this. I don't have a reference to compare it to, but I would make this again. I only used 14 ounces of tofu, it was all that would fit in the pot. Loved the noodles. My friend gave me fish flakes, so I made my own dashi stock. I look forward to trying more recipes like this.
I made this recipe exactly as written and thought it was fantastic. I spent a semester studying in Japan (which does not make me an expert, but it does at least make me familiar) and I have to say this struck me as a very authentic, delicious dish. Make sure not to skip the mirin or dashi - their flavors are a must.
Unfortunately I had chicken broth and not dashi. I'm sure this would be perfect if I were using the right ingredients. As it was, I thought it was great and will certainly make it again.
This is very close to the nabeyaki udon my grandma used to make. The dashi stock is important, but if unavailable, chicken stock can work. It is very important to use fresh udon noodles. If you use packaged dry noodles, they will get very soggy and the texture ruins the dish. I like to crack the eggs into the boiling broth and stir it a bit, then there are no big yolk balls. In Hawaii, we eat nabeyaki udon with a bowl of hot rice. Yum yum!
Delicious! Used oyster mushrooms instead of shitake & left out the eggs but it was still unbelievably tasty. Used the konbudashi recipe (with bonito flakes) on this site as the base. My whole family ate it including my 3 year old who had never had Japanese food before.
This was delicious! Very flexible recipe. I used veggie stock and added some bonito flakes to it. I had no other veggies but kale, and the soup was quite yummy with just noodles and kale.
This is simply an amazing recipe, quick and very simple. I love it....
Made a simplified version, without the noodles. The eggs were scrumptious, and the shiitakes just delicious. So easy to make! Definitely adding it to my rotation. Thanks!!
