Udon, Mushroom and French Beans

When I saw Anncoo's blog on this Udon, Mushroom and French Bean.  I knew straight away it will be perfect for our Friday's meal. 

How can it not be when it consist of all our favourite!  Anyway, it was so simple to prepare that I just adore this recipe.  

I didn't blanch my french beans as my kiddo do not like blanched food, so I did a little stir fry instead.  Also I didn't have shiitaki mushroom and thus opted for shimeji mushroom instead.

My kids just love this.  In fact, they love the sauce and even added more than what Anncoo indicated.

Thanks for the wonderful and easy recipe!

What you need:

600g Udon
2 packet Shimeji mushrooms
a bunch of French beans
1 tbsp Garlic, chopped
oyster sauce (1/2 tsp + 1/2 tsp)


200ml Water
3 tbsp Kikkomann soya sauce
1½ tbsp Mirin
2 tsp Sesame oil
1 tsp Sugar
2 tsp Mustard powder (optional)
1 tbsp Corn flour


black sesame


Combine all the dressing ingredients together in a small pot and stir to boil with a whisk. Lower heat and simmer for 30 seconds or till sauce thickened and set aside.

Heat non-stick pan at medium heat with a little oil and saute garlic for a while, add mushrooms into it and stir fry for about 2 minutes.  

Add ½ tsp of oyster sauce and 3 tbsp of water into the mushrooms and fry for another 2 minutes with a dash of pepper. Dish up and set aside.

Next using the same wok, heat oil and sautee garlic till fragrant, add in French beans and give a quick stir fry, add 1/2 tsp of oyster sauce and a little water, simmer till beans turned green, removed and set aside.

Blanch the udon in a pot of boiling water for 2-3 minutes until udon separated and cooked. (while blanching the udon, warm up the sauce at low heat).

Divide udon equally top with French beans and mushrooms. 

Gently drizzle with 4-5 tablespoons of the dressing over it with a dash of black or white pepper and black sesame when serve. (do not add too much of the dressing as it is quite salty, just add to taste). 

Garnish with some red and green chillies on top.

Toss the udon well before consume.
