Recipes Using Homemade Yakisoba Sauce
Homemade Yakisoba Sauce
- Gather all the ingredients.
- In a mason jar or bowl, whisk together 3 Tbsp oyster sauce, 2 Tbsp ketchup, 1½ Tbsp soy sauce, and 1½ Tbsp sugar until well combined and the sugar is dissolved.
- Add 7 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce (I use Lea & Perrins brand) and whisk it all together. It‘s important to taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning, if needed. For example, some ketchup is sweeter than others, so adjust the amount of sugar to taste. Keep in mind that you will be using this sauce for the noodles, so the flavor should be strong and not bland.
- You can store the sauce in a mason jar or airtight container for up to a month.
