Curry will be sweeter.   If you like spicy,  don’t cut small.
If you use ground meat,  the curry will be sweeter,  also.   This way,  you can cook this for Kids meal.  
Extra sweet?? Put corn! I cook meat first,  but if you use sea food,  put those last.   I will write here only meat version. After cook meat (I usually do half way done), put onion.   Then put other vegetables.  
When all vegetable are cooked,  add water.  
The amount of water is covering the vegetables and meat.

When water has boiled,  turn to simmer.   Then remove the skim that has formed.   Put curry cubes from the box. How thick the curry should be?   It depends on you but it is almost same as gravy sauce or little bit thicker.   So,  if you think cube is not enough to thicken,  put it more.   I recommend one by one.

Make sure not to burn the curry. It would be easy to burn if the heat is too high after you put cubes. Be careful! curry finish in the pot

My secret Japanese-Curry ingredient See?   Isn’t it quick easy recipe??? Many people put their own secret ingredients.   Some put soy sauce,  honey,  chocolate,  grind apple,  ginger,  etc. I will tell you my secret; t his is my secret Japanese Curry recipe.   I put in ground garlic the last,  before turn off the heat. About 3 to 5 min cook with garlic before you turn off the heat.   I like to put a lot,  it makes a big different!   Try it!! Also, you may see the picture;  I use carrots that are the baby carrots from bag.   This way,  I don’t need to cut carrots,  save some time. When you are cooking,  you may need to add some water.   Water level is almost covering all ingredients in the pan. Lastely,  put rice on the plate and curry over it! Ready to eat. By the way,  I think second day is much better taste.    🙂

Ingredients:

*Yakisoba package
*Cabbage ————————–half of small one
*Meat —————————– anything you want, shrimp would be good also
*Bean sprouts ———————-if you buy small container, I put them all

I have a meat slicer. I use it a lot. Many Japanese cooking use very thin meat which is Philly steak cut like. (You may be able to find Philly steak cut beef at any grocery store) I start seeing Philly cut recently. I buy regular meat (steak meat) and cut it by myself.

How to cut so thin? I will write on the other page again. But easy way is freeze the meat half way, and use slicer. You can slice paper thin this way. Otherwise, it is very difficult to slice it.

This time I sliced half frozen pork chop.
1. Put oil in the frying pan.

2. Cook meats first but not all the way. Because, it is thin meat, you don’t want to over cook. It will be very tough.

3. Put cabbage and cook together.

4. Put noodle after all vegetables are cooked.

***You should have defrosted the noodles before you put them in the wok. If you don’t feel noodles are loosening, put half cup of water. Put lid on for about few minutes.

5. Mix all together and put the bean sprouts. Bean sprouts cook quickly, if you like very soft; you can put this when you put cabbage. I like crunchy, so I put it last.

6. Lastly, you put powder sauce and mix together.

It is very easy!
