I did say that I don't like udon all that much. Texture not nice and such. In fact when I prepared udon for my partner's food prep, this happened.
Mee Bandung?? Ish! I must take him to eat Mee Bandung so that he knows what is Mee Bandung hah...hah...
He was right about the noodle being too soft. That's because I overcooked the udon. My bad. In fact I heated up the second portion for myself and that's when I got a taste of my soggy fried udon. Ugh! Not nice!
After cooking Sweet and Sour Meatballs with one packet of minced pork, I decided to cook fried udon with the other one. I picked up a packet of udon from the supermarket with the intention of correcting my mistake.
This time, my fried udon is very basic. Just with some onions, garlic and minced pork. Very simple and uncomplicated.
I cooked the minced pork first and when it was almost done, I blanched the udon very briefly to ensure it was not overcooked. Then I quickly drained the udon and added the noodles into the wok for a quick stir fry.
This time the udon was firm with a bite as it should be. I thought it was so much better this time. It made for a good dish for my food prep.
Nicely packed into two glass containers and I am sure this time it would not be mistaken from Mee Bandung wahahahaha!!
