Recipe: Japanese Pork and Udon Noodles

This Japanese pork and udon noodle dish is certified Better-Than-Takeout. A super quick and easy dish, udon is a type of thick wheat flour noodle that’s easy to cook. Not that this dish needs any more flavor, but I like to be a little bad and add extra soy sauce for taste. Shh… don’t tell my doctor.
