Hot Dog Yakisoba Bread

HotDog-Yakisoba-breadHere is another interesting food combination from Japan that is going to make you scratch your head and say what??  I know that’s exactly what I did when I first laid eyes on Yakisoba Pan (Pan is bread in Japanese).  Yes noodles in bread, not where you usually find noodles but this really works, especially when you put hot dogs in the Yakisoba.

There’s a group of us on Twitter who started a monthly Twitter Food Party.  We all decide on an ingredient or type of dish and then each of us will create a dish and tweet our masterpiece.  It has really been such a great experience for me.  There is no pressure to blog the dish, you don’t even have to be a Food Blogger, and no contest either, just pure fun.

For the month of January we decided on hot dogs.  I was trying to think of something different and Yakisoba Bread came to mind because it’s served on bread similar to a hot dog bun.  I thought why not add hot dogs to the Yakisoba, that would be yummy!  You can really play around with the vegetables.  For the Yakisoba in this recipe I used cabbage, onions and carrots but use whatever you and your family like.  Anything tastes good in Yakisoba.  Yakisoba Bread is also great to pack for lunch or to take along on a picnic.

Note:  My favorite Yakisoba sauce is the Otafuku brand which you can now find in many Asian supermarkets or online at Otafukufoods.com

Ingredients: (makes enough to fill 6-8 hot dog buns)

2 packages pre-steamed Yakisoba noodles (6 ounces each)
1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 large or 4 regular hot dogs, sliced in 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 medium onion, thinly slice
2 medium carrots, thinly sliced on the diagonal
1/4 head green cabbage cut into 1-inch squares
6 tablespoons Yakisoba Sauce (or to suit your taste)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup water or sake
6-8 Hot dog buns

Toppings:

Red Pickled Ginger (Beni Shoga)
Aonori (Dried Nori Flakes)

Preparation:

Hotdog-Yakisoba-bread-prepLightly loosen Yakisoba noodles and set aside.  Heat vegetable oil in medium skillet on medium heat.  Add hot dogs, onion, carrot to the skillet and stir-fry for about 5-7 minutes  or until onions and carrots brown slightly and soften but still have a bite to them.  Add the cabbage to the skillet and stir-fry for another 3-4 minutes.  Add salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Add the noodles to the skillet.  Pour 1/4 cup of water or sake over the noodle mixture and cover the skillet. Turn down the heat to low and steam for about two minutes. Remove the lid to let the remaining liquid evaporate, about 2 minutes.  Add the Yakisoba sauce. (adjust the amount of sauce to your taste)  Stir-fry the noodles quickly so the sauce is mixed evenly.  Shut off the heat.

Fill each hot dog bun with Yakisoba, sprinkle with Aonori and top with the pickled ginger and serve.

  1. This will be popular! I understand a new trend for teens and college kids is the pasta sandwich. This is perfect – although you make it look even better than I imagine they might make in a rush to get their carbs. I will try this for a Super Bowl party this weekend. Thanks for the idea. Imelda

    • Thank you for your comment. In Japan they also have spaghetti bread, interesting that it’s catching on here in the US too!

  2. That looks absolutely delish! 🙂

  3. Yum! Hey, that reminds me of my mom, she likes to wrap boiled noodles around sausage then she would deep fry it. This looks so delicious!

  4. Wow that sounds really good too! The addition of hot dogs really make the Yakisoba I think 🙂

  5. I’ve only seen this on anime! and I always wonder why they do that. haha

  6. I’d do anything to have this right now to cure my massive hangover.

  7. Haha! Thanks Melody~wish u were here so I could make it for you 🙂

    What brand of Yakisoba sauce do you recommend ?? Is there a recipe to make a home made version of Yakisoba sauce?? Thanks for great site and for helping me out!! 🙂 🙂

      I saw that you recommend Otafuku Brand, sorry for not seeing that before posting. On the otherhand is there a good recipe for Yakisoba sauce??

      • Thank you for your comment! I have never made my own Yakisoba sauce so not sure about a recipe. Most Japanese do not make it from scratch since there are so many great ones available. I love Otafuku, it’s one of best ones I ever tasted. I also I use their Okonomiyaki sauce.

      • I also have a Omusoba recipe on my blog I don’t know if you saw that recipe.

  9. This looks good and fun to try for teenagers . What kind of sausage did you use ?
    Thanks

    • Thank you for your comment! I used an organic all beef hot dog from Applegate but you can use any type of sausage or hot dog.
