Here are the ingredients:
  • Chicken breast, filleted(about 500g or more, your choice)
  • Fish balls
  • Black pepper
  • Black pepper sauce
  • Udon noodles
  • Garlic
  • Cabbage
  • Spring Onions
  • Light soy sauce
  • Thick soy sauce
  • Sesame oil

Homemade Black Pepper Udon

There are no boundaries for this dish. You may substitute the chicken fillet and fish ball with your choice of meat. Beef sounds good don't you think?. It was a little spicy for the aftertaste so I guess I used too much crushed black pepper.

Last but not least, thanks for checking out my blog. Till then, happy cooking :)
