I and my family got the flu – well, unsure if it was the flu but it was definitely a pretty mean cold. Yeah – I got it then my wife, then out kids – and two small children with the sick while you have it is a daunting situation. But we needed to get some things at the store so we all went and I ran in. I got the sick first so was getting to the point of starting to get over it while everyone else was knee deep in it. I thought hey – I’ll look at the noodle aisle. I always look at the noodle aisle. Lo and behold, they had this at Safeway. What?! Yep! something new to review at Safeway. Not the norm! So let’s see what the heck we have here and how it pans out.
I’ve had Korean BBQ many times – I’m very curious what a yakisoba style approximation of it will be.
Maruchan Yakisoba Korean BBQ Flavor Japanese Home Style Noodles – United States
Here’s the bottom of the package (click to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, Open lid halfway. Then, add in sachet marked 1 along the side of the noodle block. Add water to fill line. Reclose and microwave for 4 minutes at 1000W. Let sit an additional minute. Remove lid and add in sachet marked 2. Finally, stir and enjoy!

The first of two sachers.
Not exactly sure what this is – very curious!
The second of two sachets.
A very light powder.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added bbq pork, sesame seeds, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, and spring onion. The noodles came out quite well after a spin in the microwave – nice chew and gauge to them. The flavor is pretty spot on when compared to cooking beef and Lee Kum Kee Korean BBQ sauce like we do and put over rice. Was surprised. Bits of garlic here and there. Impressed! 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 041789007699.
