portobello stirfry with udon

almost every week we have stirfry for dinner. so why isn't the stirfry category overloaded with recipes? the formula is too easy, too foolproof to post - a little meat + a lot of vegetables + sauce over rice (jason) or noodles (me). it's really easy, really fast, and you can throw in whatever meat and vegetables you have lying around (it's a great way to use up the last of the carrots/snow peas/mushrooms). and if you make double, it reheats really well for lunch the next day.

this version is essentially chicken & vegetable stirfry with soba noodles. except instead of chicken, we have portobello mushrooms. and udon instead of soba. and i forgot we had carrots, so i traded those for water chestnuts.
