Butter udon with sesame leaves


Steve has been so sick lately but due to his busy schedule and meetings, he could not take a day to rest. He looked miserable when he left for work which breaks my heart. And on the other hand, my tot and I had a wonderful day today at a farm. We are supposed to go apple picking as well as pumpkin picking this Saturday but just because we can, we went to a farm near by with some friends. We were having so much fun we stayed there for a while and when we came home, it was already past our dinner time. Well..if you remember, our meal schedule's kind of lame. Dinner for me and my tot is usually 530-6pm. Haha


No time for anything fancy. We were tired and hungry even though we had a donut at the farm. 8 minute dinner. If it's not for the soft boiled egg, it's probably less than 5 minute dinner. Kids eat butter sauce pasta so why not butter udon? We love udon noodle. The way my tot sucks up one little string of noodle at a time is hilarious. These pictures were taken previously and unfortunately not the best quality. Clearly, I tend to make this dish when I'm starving or in a hurry. It will look a lot prettier if you don't squash the egg when you peel.  

Butter udon with sesame leaves


1 packet udon noodle
1 soft boiled egg(I boil from cold water for 8minutes)
10 sesame leaves(shiso leaves), Chiffonade
1/2 Tbsp butter
1 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp mirin
2 tsp toasted sesame seeds(more for garnish)


1. Cook the udon as package directions. 

2. Mix soy sauce, sugar, mirin and sesame seeds in a bowl.

3. Add hot udon noodle and butter to the bowl with the sauce and mix until noodle's evenly coated.

4. Place udon in a serving plate/bowl and top with soft boiled egg, sesame leaves and sprinkle some sesame seeds, if desired.
