Yep, Yatosbi, Yakisobi, or some call it Yakasobi!  What ever!

We didn't know it was called either until I wanted to make sure of the ingredients on the Internet and discovered the recipe.

Well, ours came out of a local Baptist church recipe book, and it was simply called "Beef and Cabbage"!

Yatosbi has a couple more ingredients that didn't make it into ours, and, I'm tellin' you, it's still delicious.  Don't sound delicious at first glance, but, try it, you'll like it, and want more!

Here's the traditional Yatosbi dish ingredients that we left out:

    6 slices bacon, cooked and torn into bite size pieces (reserve 2 tbls bacon fat)
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    1 medium red onion, diced (about 1 1/4 cup)
    2-4 tablespoons light soy sauce
    light soy sauce, to taste
    crushed red pepper flakes (about 1/2 to 1 tsp) (optional)
It sounds good too, so you might won't to try it, especially since it has BACON...I probably will soon!

However, here's one I found on the net similar to ours, AFTER having made it from the church recipe:

Beef & Cabbage

1 lb ground beef
1 head shredded cabbage*
2 packages ramen noodles, beef flavor=crushed
3 shredded carrots
4 c. water

Brown beef and drain grease. Add remaining ingredients, including seasoning packets from soup. Cover and simmer about 20 minutes. Season to taste. *I {original net recipe maker} used 1/2 head. You can also use slaw mix, rather than shredding the cabbage yourself.

Leave the lid off a few minutes for excess liquid to evaporate.

Judy did it exactly like that, except she did add on chopped onion, and I think it made a difference!

The picture does nothing to make you want to try it, but the taste is wonderful!  

So, it's a another quick meal that even I could have made, and it does satisfy the palate!

I always heard it as Yakisobi, back in my boating with the Navy days. Figured it was a Filipino dish, considering all the Filipinos who were cookin' it.
