If you always order Lo Mein (tossed noodles) or Chow Mein (fried noodles) at the restaurant or for take-out, then stop! With a slow cooker, you can produce the most delicious and authentic Asian noodle meals, with very little preparation. Believe me -- they are just as good, if not better, than take-out. Seriously, check out these recipes and mouthwatering pictures, and then throw away that take-out menu!
First up, the pictures below should be enough to persuade you to start searching the refrigerator for everything you need to make it.
