Carbonara Udon

This is a genuine carbonara recipe using udon noodles instead of spaghetti - I would say it probably tastes better than the original!

Recipe By: KitchenCIB (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/94)
Serves 2 Cook: 12 min

Ingredients

Udon noodles 250-300g
Pancetta or bacon 50g
Onion (medium) 1/2
Pepper as you like
Olive oil 2 tbsp
Eggs 2
Egg yolk 1
Pecorino romano plenty

Method

1
Put the olive oil in a frying pan and fry the pancetta.
2
The oil that's released will be the base of the sauce, so cook the pancetta slowly.
3
When the pancetta shrinks, add the chopped onion and fry. Start boiling the udon noodles (no salt required in the water).
4
Put the eggs and egg yolk in a bowl and grate in lots of pecorino cheese and lots of freshly ground pepper and mix well.
5
When the udon noodles are ready, add to the frying pan at Step 3 and pour in the mixture from Step 4. Mix everything thoroughly together in the pan.
6
If the frying pan is too hot, the egg will cook and become too hard. If you want to, you can mix everything in a bowl instead (the egg will cook in residual heat).
7
Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle again with lots of cheese and pepper.

Tips & Note

●When adding the udon to the frying pan, add a couple of tbsp of the udon water as well to help incorporate the sauce
●The egg needs to be still runny to add to the sauce, it shouldn't be overcooked
