    what do you do with the sauce after you do the last step?

    • Jenny

      The last step is when you combine the sauce with the noodles and vegetables and just cook until it thickens. Does that answer your question?

    Why do you use “chow mein noodles” in lo mein?

    • Jenny

      I like chow mein noodles because they cook in 3 minutes and they look more authentic than spaghetti. I use Wel-Pac which I can always find at my grocery store (see the photo in my blog). As far as I can tell, both chow mein and lo mein use the same kind of noodles. The difference lies in how they are prepared with lo mein being boiled and chow mein fried.
