Anyone ever used Shirataki Noodles in a stir fry?

I'm down over 60 lbs since last year - and just now stumbled onto these apparently lo-carb, lo-cal noodles.  So, I'm real interested if they cook, taste and eat ok.  I've read that they absorb flavors well.  Would REALLY like to get some broader recipes going in my arsenal and to use the wok in my LBGE more - with noodles!  So, anyone got any experience with them?

    i've cooked with them a couple of times, and thought they were pretty good. Available at the grocery store, which is very convenient, but we don't eat noodles at home very often.

    I have had them in the past.  Important to follow initial cooking directions (Drain, Rinse, Boil, Cook in hot pan, then into whatever dish you are making).  If you skip this step, you will have rubberbands.  Otherwise, they are quite good.

    I have not stir fried them, but they behave like most noodles, less likely to get mushy.  They have a weird rubbery texture, not bad, but different. 

    I have a case of them in my pantry right now.

    Good to hear - from what little research I've done, I've seen similar recommendations, except for the boiling part...but def cook in the hot pan to help dry them out so that they can take on the flavor.

    How's the mouthfeel/texture?

  • Outstanding on hitting 60!

    Although not exactly low carb, Birdseye veggie pasta is pretty decent if/when you get ready to transition into a macro diet.

    Skip them!! Nasty tasting slimy. Can not recommend. Spaghetti Squash is way better and more like real noodles. Shiritaki smells and taste like fish. Just my opinion

    they tasted fine but my stomach **did not** know what to do with them. Felt like a brick of lead in my gut for about 36hrs.
