Do you like Thai food?
I LOVE Thai food!!
Anything from the country, it is just marvelously delicious!!
I shared the BEST Pad Thai recipe, if you would love to check that recipe out!
But today, I will be sharing even more SIMPLER Thai stir fried noodle recipe, Pad See Ew!
The key point of Pad See Ew is the noodles.
Please. Please. Please.
Try your best to find fresh rice noodles at your local Asian grocery store.
Maybe ask your local Thai restaurant, if they will sell the fresh rice noodles to you.
The texture of the fresh rice noodle is the key for this recipe along with the perfectly balanced sauce & broccoli!
Now days, fancy grocery stores like Wholefoods, carries fresh rice noodles at the refrigerator section.
I purchased and used once, it is definitely works great, so if that’s only option for you, go ahead and use that one!
I had to try many times to find the perfect balance sauce for my Pad See Ew, and it was incredibly delicious!!!
Hope you give my Pad See Ew recipe a try one day!!!
For the Sauce
- 1 Tbs oyster sauce
- 1 Tbssoy sauce (I recommend Healthy Boy Brand)
- 2 Tbs sweet soy sauce, AKA black soy sauce (I recommend Healthy Boy Brand)
- 3 Tbs cooking oil (I recommend peanut, sunflower, canola or vegetable oil)
- 1/2 lb beef flank steak, sliced against grain and cut into bite sizes (you can substitute chicken, pork, shrimp or tofu)
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/2 lb Chinese broccoli (you can substitute regular broccoli or broccoli), sliced diagonal angle
- 10 oz fresh rice noodles sheet, separated to single pieces then teared to large pieces or chow fun noodles (If you’re using refrigerated rice noodles, bring it to room/warm temperature so it will easily separate by hand)
- 1 egg
- Black pepper
- Combine all ingredients for sauce, set aside.
- Heat a wok over hight heat; add 1 Tbs. cooking oil and add beef. Sear beef 1 to 2 minute each side or until beef edges are brown. Remove from wok and set aside.
- In same wok, add remaining cooking oil; add garlic, stir fry for 30 seconds or until you can smell the aroma. Before garlic turns into brown color, add Chinese broccoli and 1 minute or until broccoli is slightly soften.
- Add noodles and sauce we made earlier. Stir until noodles and vegetables are coated with sauce evenly. Spread and let it sit for 30 to 45 seconds to sear noodles. Toss and do same to other side. Repeat 2 to 3 more times as needed.
- Push noodles and vegetables to side of wok to make room for egg. Add tiny bit more cooking oil and crack egg into wok. Scramble egg separately then mix into noodles and vegetables.
- Add seared beef back to wok, toss everything together and stir fry for 30 second to 1 minute. Remove from heat.
- Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with freshly grind black pepper. Serve immediately with Thai chili vinegar to your taste. Enjoy!
Add fresh Thai chili or dried Thai chili powder when you adding beef back to wok if you’d like some kick!
