How to cook fresh flour lo-mein noodles from Russos?
[Moderator note: This was moved from the Boston Board]
I want to make a stir fry tonight and have never used fresh lo-mein noodles. Do I boil them (if so how long?) or can I just throw them in to the stir fry? I don't want them to fall apart. Anyone have a good system?
Depending on how thick the noodles are. If they're the really thin, thinner than angel hair pasta noodles I wouldn't go more than 1 min. You want the noodles to be just undercook when adding to your stir-fry. This way the noodles will finish cooking and absorb some of the sauce.
If they're the regular egg noodles about the size of spaghetti then 2-3 min. should be sufficient. I usually don’t measure the cooking time, I just place the noodles into the boiling water, bring it to a boil then add 1 cup of water in wait until it boils again and add a second cup of water in, when the water boils for the third time the noodles are done.
