lo mein vs chow mein
What's Chow Mein?
These noodles are your best bet, when you might have a recipe that calls for either fresh or dried noodles.
What Is Lo Mein?
Lo Mein mean "discarded noodles." When you've got a recipe that calls for "fresh egg noodles," this is your best bet.
Chow Mein Vs Lo Mein
It is all the preparation of each noodle, when it comes down to the chow mein vs lo mein deal. They are the same - they're made out of exactly the same ingredients - but you use them otherwise. They're both made with wheat flour and egg. Both noodles have to be softened in boiling water either way, just for different times. Dehydrated noodles want 5-6 minutes to boil, while fresh egg noodles just want 2-3 minutes to cook. The cooking time also depends upon the thickness you need to your own noodles.
Below are some basic Chinese recipes for both dishes whom I believe you are going to enjoy.
