    Hmm, we used the fresh noodles a couple of times (the ones you just ass straight to the wok) and to be honest we didn't like them as much as the dried ones that you boil in water. They were just a bit greasy and tasteless. Doubt you're doing anything wrong, I think they are just an acquired taste!

    The fresh fat yellow egg noodles I assume you're speaking of?

    They always turn out greasy. lol. Are you adding meat and vegetables? Just leave the juices from the meat/vegetables in the wok and warm up in there, that way there's no added oil??

    I always cook then mix into the stirfry before serving to coat them with the sauce.

    Where are you buying them from? We get Sainsbury's and they're not greasy at all but others we've had have been very greasy. Check on the ingredients if they are in sesame oil as that makes them taste pretty ick.

    They add oil after cooking to stop them sticking together so pluss the oil your adding to cook makes them greasy
