Lemongrass Chili Oil Udon (10 Minutes)

Watch how to make it here

The chewy udon noodles combined with the savory sate sauce and the meaty mushrooms make this dish the perfect 10-minute weeknight meal.

A few notes:

  1. Regular soy sauce can be used as a substitute for sweet soy sauce.
  2. My lemongrass chili oil recipe can be found here and I would advise against substituting it. It is full of flavor since it already includes lemongrass, garlic, shallots, and several other essential spices.
  3. If oyster mushrooms are not available at your local grocery store then shitake mushrooms would be a good substitute.
  4. Any other vegetables in your refrigerator can be added to this dish. The more greens, the better!
  5. This dish is best enjoyed immediately. However, if there are any leftovers, please enjoy them within 1 day.
