I liked this. I don't have a reference to compare it to, but I would make this again. I only used 14 ounces of tofu, it was all that would fit in the pot. Loved the noodles. My friend gave me fish flakes, so I made my own dashi stock. I look forward to trying more recipes like this.

I made this recipe exactly as written and thought it was fantastic. I spent a semester studying in Japan (which does not make me an expert, but it does at least make me familiar) and I have to say this struck me as a very authentic, delicious dish. Make sure not to skip the mirin or dashi - their flavors are a must.

This is very close to the nabeyaki udon my grandma used to make. The dashi stock is important, but if unavailable, chicken stock can work. It is very important to use fresh udon noodles. If you use packaged dry noodles, they will get very soggy and the texture ruins the dish. I like to crack the eggs into the boiling broth and stir it a bit, then there are no big yolk balls. In Hawaii, we eat nabeyaki udon with a bowl of hot rice. Yum yum!
