Udon noodles tacos, who has ever heard of such a thing? I haven’t. This is my idea of a fusion meal with a difference. Lamb udon noodles tacos combine European, Japanese and Mexican elements with pulled meat from slowly roasted lamb bones, and creamy Udon noodles in a soft flour tortilla.
- Lamb bones
- Red wine
- Worcestershire sauce
- BBQ sauce
- Udon noodles
- Soft tortillas
- Cayenne chillies
- Jalapeño peppers
- Spring onions
- Fresh cracked black pepper
- Chilli flakes
Pre-heat your oven to 120 °C.
In a baking tray, lay out the lamb bones and add the BBQ sauce, Worcestershire sauce and red wine so there is enough to keep the meat moist while slowly cooking.
Cover the baking tray with aluminium foil and place it on the oven for three hours.
When the meat is ready, remove the tray and while covered allow the meat to cool to room temperature.
Pull the meat apart with your fingers and set aside for later.
Cook the Udon noodles in boiling water for 8 minutes.
Rinse the Udon noodles under cold water and then set aside.
Make a roux with the butter and flour and convert it to a white sauce with milk but don't make it too thick yet.
Add cream to the white sauce and allow it to thicken.
Finely chop the Cayenne chillies, Jalapeño peppers and Spring onions.
Warm up a soft flour tortilla in the microwave oven for 30 seconds.
Add the Udon noodles to the hot sauce and add in some of the chillies, peppers and Spring onions plus a little of the pulled meat.
Prepare the tacos and add some extra meat to the plate.

Eat or rather devour the Creamy Udon Noodles Tacos and make some more with the leftover ingredients.

This is an amazing fusion of European, Japanese and Mexican cuisines.

Questions and answers
What inspired me to make this?
I had some lamb bones in the freezer and some old Udon noodles in the pantry. I was looking through some books on my Kindle and noticed Hilah Johnson’s breakfast taco cook book in there.
I thought it would be a good idea to make tacos for dinner while watching Game of Thrones Season 7 on the weekend.
Do I like Game of Thrones?
Hell yeah. What’s not to like about Game of Thrones? Season 7 certainly disappoint.
Why do I watch a whole season in one sitting?
I’m too tight fisted to subscribe to Foxtel and as an official in the Australian Public Service, I’m not prepared to download it illegally given all the attention the government had given to piracy.
I wait until the end of the season and buy it from iTunes.
I also like making an event out of it by cooking something nice while I watch.
I enjoyed quite a bit of food while watching Game of Thrones on the weekend.
