Cook the soba noodles
Prep your protein
- Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into ½-inch cubes.
- Chicken, steak, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Cut into 1-inch pieces.
- Shrimp: Rinse and drain the shrimp. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate.
Cook your protein
- In a medium bowl, stir together the cornstarch, 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] salt, and ½ teaspoon [1 tsp] pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until the protein is browned and just cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes for chicken and 3 to 6 minutes for all other proteins. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and season to taste with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pan. While your protein cooks, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the remaining ingredients
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
- Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal, keeping the light and dark green parts separate.
