Once my boys tasted Japanese Teriyaki Noodles, they forgot about their favorite boxed after school snack of Mac and Cheese and this became a family favorite.  It’s commonly served with sautéed veggies or in a noodle bowl with chicken or steak. 

My boys prefer just a bowl of Teriyaki Noodles with Sesame Seeds on top

Teriyaki Noodles are tangy, sweet, and delicious.  Use a bottled Teriyaki Sauce or follow my delicious Teriyaki Sauce recipe, it’s a keeper recipe by the way so make sure to Pin it for later. 

How to make Teriyaki Noodles

In the time it takes to make a box of Mac and Cheese, you can make this fresh Teriyaki Noodle. 

  • Follow the directions on your noodle package and rinse and drain the noodles when they are cooked. 
  • In a frying pan over medium/high heat, heat up 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil.

  • When the oil is hot add the noodles and stir.  You will hear the sizzle.  Isn’t it wonderful?  Add the teriyaki sauce and stir to coat all the noodles. 
  • You can always add more or less depending on how sweet of a flavor you want. 
  • Sometimes I even add some sliced onions and slivered carrots at this point but it’s truly optional to what you prefer.

  • Let this cook for 2-4 minutes.  The Teriyaki Sauce will bubble and caramelize a bit.  Sprinkle ginger on top and get ready to serve.  It’s just that simple.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds, green onions, and carrot slivers.
