Shirataki Tofu Noodle Beef Lo Mein
This was my first time eating Shirataki Noodles and I don't know how anyone wouldn't like them. I think they are wonderful. I did read that they are better in Asian Food rather than Italian and I can see why that would be so I tried a version of my favorite asian dish.
Sorry in advance that there isn't proper measurement. I was just playing and didn't really measure anything.

2 Packs of Shirataki Tofu Spaghetti Noodles
Large Handful of Julianne Carrots
¼ sliced green cabbage

I think your recipe has real merit.
Was surprised that you nuked the nudles for 2 min.
Would have thought that they would be rubbery?
Evidently not. Maybe you have hit upon something.
Always wished that I could soften them up somethow.
