  • 1 (12-ounce) package dried udon noodles
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce (or vegetarian stir-fry sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped green onions, for garnish
  • 1 egg, beaten (optional)


  • Cook the udon noodles according to the package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. If using, scramble the egg and remove it from the pan.
  • Add the remaining oil to the pan, and then add the onion and cook until softened, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, red bell peppers, mushrooms, and broccoli florets. Cook, stirring constantly, until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the cooked noodles and scrambled egg (if using) to the pan.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice vinegar, honey, cornstarch, and black pepper.
  • Pour the sauce over the noodles and vegetables. Toss everything together until well combined and heated through.
  • Garnish with green onions, and serve hot.


  1. If you like your stir-fry spicy, you can add a pinch of red pepper flakes or chili oil to the sauce.
  2. Feel free to add other vegetables to the stir-fry, such as carrots, snow peas, or baby corn.
  3. If you’re making a vegan version, omit the egg and use a vegetarian stir-fry sauce instead of oyster sauce.
