Easy To Cook Black Pepper Udon Recipe

My Black Pepper Udon dish is my version of the Japanese Udon in a clear broth. Everytime I go to a Japanese restaurant, I always order the Udon dish as I love the chewy texture of the noodles.

Here I have decided to do a stir fry using black pepper as the prominent ingredient. It is so easy to cook and you can find most of the ingredients in a supermarket. Do give it a try.

Food Sorceress Note:

  1. Dry roasting pepper:  On medium heat, dry roast pepper with constant stirring until it starts to crackle and move. Use a mortar and pestle and crush the black pepper when it is still warm. Keep it coarse.
  2. Add water or stock to the noodles if it gets too dry while cooking
  3. Serve immediately as it taste best freshly cooked.
