Udon is one of my favorite Japanese noodles. I am especially fond of the thick noodles or pasta for some reason. There are all sorts of dishes made with udon so it’s pretty versatile. Another great reason to enjoy udon is that most dishes are very simple and easy to prepare! This dish only took about 10 minutes to cook and yet it’s a delicious comfort food. It also has a spicy kick to it due to the gochujang. The level of spiciness can be adjusted depending on how spicy your gochujang is. The gochujang I used in this recipe happened to be homemade so it was extra delicious!
My family really enjoys this dish whether it’s for lunch or dinner and I hope you enjoy it too!
