What are teriyaki noodles made from?

There is no set type of noodle to use when making teriyaki noodles. You can use rice or wheat based noodles in whatever shape you prefer.

For our recipe, we use spaghetti noodles. In part, this is because we almost always have them on hand. And also, we like the texture and the overall size of the noodles.

Teriyaki Sauce Noodles Ingredients

For the best tasting teriyaki, you’ll need to get the following ingredients ready to go:

  • Spaghetti - We use regular, white noodles, but you could try this with whole wheat if you want to add some fiber to the noodles.
  • Sliced mushrooms - We use shiitake, but you can use whatever kind you prefer.
  • Water - This is to cook the noodles in the Instant Pot.
  • Teriyaki Sauce - You can make your own using our Teriyaki sauce recipe or use your favorite bottle of sauce or make your own following our recipe. 
  • Green Onions - The green onions create a nice, flavorful garnish.
  • Sesame Seeds - Adding seeds gives the slightest crunch, added flavor, and style to the noodles.

How to make Teriyaki Noodles    

Teriyaki noodles recipe step by step instructions (1)

Pro tips and tricks

Making noodles in the Instant Pot is super easy, but when you follow these tips, it is even easier:

  • Never stir noodles once you add them into the pot.
  • If you prefer a thicker teriyaki sauce, drain any excess water before pouring in the sauce.
  • For added nutrients, you can add your favorite veggies such as carrots, snap peas, baby corn, peas, or any of your favorites. Before adding them, just make sure to cut them into smaller pieces.

Should the sauce in the teriyaki sauce noodles recipe be thick?

Teriyaki sauce is often thicker than soy sauce, but its consistency can vary a bit.

You might find that you have a lot of extra liquid in the pot when the noodles are done cooking. If you want, you can drain some or all of the liquid before adding the teriyaki sauce to help thicken it  a bit. 

Just keep in mind, the sauce will thicken some on its own as you mix it in with the noodles.

Teriyaki noodles

Can you microwave teriyaki noodles?

To initially cook the noodles, no, we would not recommend using the microwave, but you can definitely use the microwave to heat up leftovers for lunch or dinner. 

The key is to make sure you cover the noodles before heating them up. This will help keep the noodles from drying up or becoming too rubbery.

Can this recipe be made into spicy teriyaki noodles?

Yes, you can easily make the noodles spicier. For a bolder flavor, we recommend adding one or more of the following:

  • A squirt or two of sriracha sauce
  • Dried Thai chili peppers
  • Red pepper flakes

Unless you like it really hot, we recommend taking it easy when adding heat the noodles to avoid making them too hot.

How do you store teriyaki noodles?

You can easily store teriyaki noodles in an airtight container in the fridge. When you store them, they should stay fresh for about 3 to 5 days.

Once you are ready to eat them, you can microwave them for about a minute or until warmed through. You could also heat them over low heat on the stove top, stirring occasionally.
