(Presseportal openBroadcast) - When they are looking at Chinese recipes some people do not understand the difference between lo mein and chow mein. There is a big difference between both. I want to start off by describing what each one is. Get more information about lo mein vs chow mein http://www.chinesefoodrecipes.cc/difference-chow-mein-lo-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 "chucked noodles." When you've got a recipe that calls for "fresh egg noodles," this is your best bet.

When it all comes down to this chow mein vs lo mein deal, it's all the groundwork of each noodle. They are the same - they're made out of the exact same ingredients - but you use them otherwise. They're both made with wheat flour and egg. Both noodles need to be softened in boiling water either way, just for times that are different. Dehydrated noodles want 5-6 minutes to boil, while fresh egg noodles only need 2-3 minutes to cook. The cooking time also depends on the thickness you want to your noodles.


Here are a few essential Chinese recipes for both dishes that I think you'll appreciate.
