What are Udon noodles?

This style of noodle is made from wheat flour and is a thick style of noodle, meaning it’s perfect for slurping and soaking up delicious sauces. And speaking of delicious sauces, there’s just something about this hoisin based dish, a super popular Chinese condiment used for dipping and sauces. Believe me when I say this dish is flavor packed.

  • GarlicUse as much or little as you like.
  • Onions We’re just using freshly chopped green onions today – easy!
  • GingerFreshly grated, this is such a wonderful aromatic addition.
  • MushroomsI kept it simple today with some sliced white mushrooms but feel free to use cremini or button if you’d prefer.
  • Sauces – We’re using regular old soy sauce, dark soy sauce, hot sauce, and hoisin today. You can find all these sauces in the Asian aisle in your grocery store.

If you don’t want to I’m not here to force you! You can always substitute this ingredient for boneless and skinless chicken thighs, beef, shrimp or even tofu.

No hoisin?

Well no problem, there’s a few substitutes available, lucky you. You can substitute the hoisin for plain BBQ sauce, or oyster sauce. Hoisin is a great sauce to have on hand so I recommend picking up a bottle when you can!

Not an udon fan?

Well in that case you can always substitute the noodles for bucatini pasta like I did in this recipe. You can also use ramen noodles or rice noodles. Just be sure to closely follow the package directions for preparing these different noodles.


These noodles will keep for 3 – 4 days in the fridge if stored in an airtight container. I wouldn’t recommend freezing this dish as the noodles don’t thaw well after time in the freezer.
