It's important to know, first of all, that making yakisoba is done in three steps.
1. Frying the meat
2. Steaming the veggies, and
3. Frying the noodles.
Most recipes that I've read would have you preparing everything all in one pan. Sure, eventually it all ends up in one pan but the preparation is really done in three stages.
1 lb chicken (or beef, or any other kind of meat you have)
5 slices bacon, chopped small
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/2 onion, sliced thickly and separated
2 cups cabbage, chopped
2 carrots, sliced thin
1/2 cup sweet mini peppers, sliced
2-3 Green onions, white parts, sliced
Canola oil for frying
1 package Yakisoba noodles
Yakisoba sauce to taste
1. Fry bacon pieces in a large skillet over medium heat, when browned add your sliced chicken pieces and cook till golden brown and slightly crispy. Remove meat and set aside. Leave the grease in your pan.
2. Cook noodles according to package directions. (If you can not find yakisoba noodles I have used top ramen noodles before with great results.) While noodles are cooking steam your vegetables excluding the green onions, You want them slightly crispy and not mushy. When done drain noodles.
3. In your large skillet, or wok if you are blessed to have one, add a little canola oil to the bacon grease left in the pan and heat to medium high heat. Add drained noodles and green onions and begin to fry them, tossing gently. Add yakisoba sauce to taste, making sure to coat the noodles but don't drench them! Add your meat and steamed veggies, mix and heat through. Serve warm and enjoy!
