Egg Noodles

I want to make Tyler's Beef Stroganoff submitted by Linda. As I like Stroganoff served over egg noodles - I searched for a recipe on this site and could not find one - so searched elsewhere and found the following recipe and would like some advice on how I could revise it to low-carb by using Carbalose:

Ingredients:
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 eggs

Directions:

Mix all ingredients with fork in large bowl. Add more liquid or flour as needed to make dough stiff and workable. Place on floured board and knead until smooth. Divide into 3 portions and roll each one thin. Sprinkle each sheet lightly with flour. Cut into strips. Let strips dry slightly before cooking.

To cook: Add to boiling, salted water. Cook 7 minutes. Drain

I remember watching my grandmother making her noodles when I was a little girl - a LONG time ago!

Thanks for any suggestions.

they will most likely have the "carbalose taste" to them. so don't find that a problem. i would personally prefer it served over "cabbage noodles" where you slice cabbage in 1/4" rounds and gently untangle the strands to make long "noodles" which we blanch, drain, then serve as a base. we cook them al dente so they still have a little "tooth" when you bite in them. makes a great sauce delivery system.

I hear that dreamfields has come out with a lasagna noodle. You could cook those up and then cut them into egg noodle sized strips.

That's a great idea - Thanks! I love cabbage.

Wow - hadn't thought of THAT - I have two boxes of the lasagna. I ordered three and already used one for REAL lasagna. It's great - my husband and I couldn't believe we were really eating lasagna the way it's supposed to be made - no more eggplant, mushroom or cabbage as a "noodle" replacement in this dish. Thank you DREAMFIELDS!!!!!

I just thought of something that goes along with your suggestion - don't know why I didn't think of it - I guess the OLD brain doesn't work like it used to. Anyway - the "other" thing I thought of was that I use Dreamfields linguine when I make an oriental dish.

Egg Noodles - using Lasagna noodles

Thank you soooooo much for your suggestion. I just made the Beef Stoganoff and the "noodles" - both are great.

I cooked the lasagna according to package directions. I rinsed and drained them - then just cut them down to a "noodle" size using a pizza cutter.

I wish the grocery stores would carry this. I ordered from Netrttion - and the problem with that was that a lot of the lasagna was broken to pieces. It was soooo wonderful having a REAL lasagna - I didn't really mind - I just pieced the noodles together.

Again thanks!

I use Dreamsfield penne in place of noodles (and the elbow as a rice substitute). It tastes great.
