Yakisoba Brasileiro/ How To Cook Brazilian Yakisoba


Yakisoba Brasileiro/Brazilian Yakisoba

This dish originates from the Japanese immigrants who came to Brazil in the early 1900s onwards. Yakisoba is a popular street food dish throughout Brazil, but in particular in São Paulo and Mato Grosso do Sul where there are large Japanese communities.

Makes 6 portions


400g of diced meat (beef/pork/chicken) or shrimps

500g of Japanese noodles

2 medium onions sliced large

1 head of broccoli sliced

½ a cabbage sliced

1 large carrot sliced

100g green beans sliced

1 bell pepper (green) sliced

8 spring onions sliced

100g of mushrooms sliced

5 tablespoons of soya sauce

5 tablespoons of vegetable oil

Boil a pan of water and start cooking the noodles. In a medium pan heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil to hot and fry the meat/shrimps. After browning for a few minutes add 2 tablespoons of soya sauce. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the meat is cooked through.

Meanwhile in a large wok add the remanding vegetable oil and heat to hot. Chef’s tip: “It’s essential to use plenty of vegetable oil as the oil provides the correct consistency to fuse together the noodles and other ingredients and gives a great fried taste.” Add the cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, onions, green beans, peppers, spring onions, mushrooms and stir fry for a few minutes. Add the remainder of the soya sauce. Add the cooked noodles and the meat/shrimp and mix well together while stir frying for a couple of minutes. Place in a large bowl and sprinkle some more spring onions on top, and let your fellow diners help themselves. That’s it, it’s done. Easy and delicious.
