Serves: 3 serving
  • 600g Udon
  • 250g Fresh Shitake mushrooms
  • a bunch of French beans
  • 1 tbsp Garlic, choppedDressing
  • 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
  • some cut green and red chillies for garnishing
  1. 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.
  2. Gently wipe the fresh shitake mushroom with a damp cloth or a paper towel and remove stem and slice mushrooms.
  3. 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. Then add ½ tbsp of oyster sauce and 3 tbsp of water into the mushrooms and saute for another minute with a dash of pepper. Dish up and set aside.
  4. Rinse French beans and blanch them in a pot of boiling water with a pinch of salt for 2 to 3 minutes. Then soak the beans in cold water for 30 seconds and strain, cut them diagonally, set aside.
  5. Blanch the udon in the same pot of boiling water for 2-3 minutes until udon separated and cooked. (while blanching the udon, warm up the sauce at low heat).
  6. Divide udon equally in 3 serving bowls or plates, 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 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.
  7. Toss the udon well before consuming.
