For the sauce:

  • 1 tbsp sugar or honey
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

For the noodles:

  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 carrot, sliced into strips
  • 1 pepper, red or yellow or a mixture of both, sliced
  • A handful of tenderstem broccoli, any large florets or stems sliced
  • 4 mushrooms, sliced
  • 400g udon noodles, or any thick, ready-cooked noodles
  • 100g beansprouts

To serve (optional):

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced
  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced
  • Sesame seeds

Cooking instructions

  • Begin by making the sauce. In a small bowl, combine the oyster sauce, soy sauce, sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Set aside.
  • Heat a wok on a medium heat and add 1 tbsp of the oil. Add the carrot strips and fry for 1-2 minutes to soften.
  • Add the pepper, fry for 1 minute, then the broccoli for another minute and finally the mushrooms. The veg should all have softened but still have some bite. Tip out onto a plate and set aside.
  • Return the wok back to the heat and add another 1 tbsp of the oil. Fry the noodles for about 30 seconds before pouring in the sauce and tossing well to coat the noodles.
  • Add the veg back into the wok along with half the beansprouts.
  • Heat a small frying pan on a medium heat and add the final 1 tbsp of oil. Crack in the eggs and fry eggs for 2-3 minutes or until they are cooked through and crispy on the bottom.
  • Just before serving, mix the remaining beansprouts through the stir fry for extra crunch.
  • Serve the noodles topped with the crispy fried eggs, with a sprinkle of chilli, spring onion and sesame seeds to finish.
