Japanese-Style Cabbage Pasta with Just One Frying Pan

Japanese-Style Cabbage Pasta with Just One Frying Pan

No need to have a separate pot for boiling the pasts or a colander to drain it. You can make this paste in just one frying pan. Yukari powder gives it a great flavor.

Ingredients: 2 servings

200 g
● Water
3 1/2 cups - 700 ml
● Olive oil
1 tablespoon
● Dashi stock granules
4 g
Chirimen jako (semi-dried salted tiny sardines)
30 g
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
Salt and pepper
To taste
Yukari (dried red shiso leaf powder)
To taste


1. Cut the core out of the cabbage and roughly chop up the rest.
2. Put the ● ingredients in a frying pan and bring to a boil. Break the pasta into half and put into the frying pan. Cool for 1 minute over medium heat, stirring so that the pasta doesn't stick.
3. Add the cabbage and chirimen jako to the frying pan and cook over high heat for 1-2 minutes. When it starts to bubble, turn off the heat and put on a lid.
4. Leave with the lid on for 2 minutes less than the cooking time indicated on the pasta wrapping.
5. Take the lid off, mix with cooking chopsticks to untangle the pasta, and re-heat over high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, to evaporate the water.
6. Turn the heat off, add the soy sauce and mix. Add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to serving plates, sprinkle with the yukari powder, and serve.
