Wives Noodles - Help Needed!

I love trying new things. While at the Asian market, I bought a pack of Wives Noodles that was located in the refrigeration section. After considering what to do with them, I resorted to Google. I still have no idea what to do with the noodles.

Has anyone used Wive's Noodles or know what to do with them? Without any other ideas, I'm going to resort to making them into sesame noodles. Not a bad idea, but I'd really like to know more about these noodles and what they are actually used for.

That doesn't sound familiar to me. What kind of fresh noodles are they? Egg, rice, another grain?

They are more commonly known as Shanghai Noodles.

Many ways to use them. I keep them in the freezer..

I honestly do not know. They do not look like egg noodles. Not translucent. Almost like a thinner udon noodle.

Thanks. That is pretty much what I got when I googled. I'm looking for what they are and how to use them beyond that.

That is funny. :)

They do not list ingredients. So I am a bit lost on how to use them. And I have never been a huge fan of the Shanghai Noodle recipes I've tried in restaurants.

I trieda new recipe from a Diane Henry cookbook. Chicken Forestiere. Chicken Thighs carrots, mushrooms, onions, in a Madiera cream sauce. The flavors were great, but it seemed very overcooked to me. The carrots had no texture. It reminded me of crock pot cooking. I'll make it again, but cut back on the time and add the carrots only for the last 10 minutes.

Could you use them for jjajangmyeon? Or are they too thin? They look very similar to what I use but I couldn't quite tell from the images.

If they are too thin, they may work for dandan noodles.

Hopefully someone here will have tried them, but either way, please let us know how they turn out!

Was this post supposed to go in the supper thread? https://www.discusscooking.com/forum...-a-105200.html

Both of these look promising! Thanks!
