La Mian - Chinese hand-pulled noodle DOUGH recipe needed. I have been wanting to make hand pulled noodles. I have watched all of the videos available on the puulling technique, but none provide a good recipe for the dough. I have tried several dough recipes found on-line, but none result in a dough that is relaxed enough to stretch. I have also tried combinations of regular flour and pastry flower, trying to reduce the gluten development. Anyone have luck with readily available ingredients?

La Mian are quite hard to do right and may take a few goes until you get it perfect. I have tried several times and only made it correctly once. When made properly they are delicious and I usually only serve them in a duck consomme, but any soup should be okay. Here is a recipe I have used many times.
