Making Tuesday Tasty-Yoshida's Noodles

This is a simple and QUICK meal I like to throw together for the family.  My husband loves Yoshida brand sauce(teriyaki).  I buy the chinese or udon noodles in the ethnic section of the supermarket, and put a dinner together.


1 lb chicken, pork, lean beef, or shrimp
1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
1 package of Chinese stir fry or Udon noodles cooked to al dente.
Yoshida's teriyaki sauce
1 clove of garlic


Boil your noodles per the directions of the package, cook to al dente.  Pour a tbsp of oil(sesame, peanut, olive) into your pan and heat to med high heat.  Chop up one clove of garlic and put it into the pan alone with bite sized pieces of your meat.  If it's shrimp, follow the directions of how to prepare so you don't over cook it.  Brown the meat with the garlic quickly.  I like to par broil the broccoli but, it depends on how done you like it. If you like your broccoli softer, you can steam it a little first and then throw it in the pan.

Put your drained noodles and broccoli in your pan and toss it a bit to get a nice texture on it.  If you like it a little "fried" consistency then heat it up for a bit until you see some browning.  Once all the ingredients are cooked to your liking, add the Yoshida's and toss.  Serve.
