Pad See Ew is soy sauce fried noodles, a rather mild Thai noodle dish. Not all Thai food is spicy! So if you don’t like your food super spicy, or just aren’t in the mood for spicy, this dish is a perfect, easy meal. If you do prefer spicy, feel free to add your own chili flakes or Thai chili sauce like I do.
- 3 cups Flat, wide rice noodles
- 3 cloves Garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons Cooking oil
- 2 Chicken breasts (Tofu or pork works too!)
- 2 cups Chinese broccoli or broccoli florets
- 2 teaspoons Thai sweet dark soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons Oyster sauce
- 2 tablespoons Thai light soy sauce
- 3 teaspoons Sugar
- 1 teaspoon White pepper
- 2 Eggs
- Soak the noodles in warm water for at least 30 minutes before cooking, unless you are using fresh rice noodles.
- Slice the Chinese broccoli into 2 in. pieces, and cut the ends at an angle. Slice chicken into thin, bite sized pieces.
- Fry the garlic making sure not to burn.
- Add chicken and keep stirring so the garlic doesn’t burn until the chicken is done.
- Add noodles and a little water to help cook the noodles a bit more. Add small amounts of water until noodles are soft, but not too much so they don’t become a blob of white mush.
(I only cook two servings at a time at most. If you cook more than that the noodles become mushy)
- Throw in the Chinese broccoli and cook for about a minute until it becomes a dark, vibrant green.
- Add in the soy sauces, sugar and pepper and stir. Add more soy sauce if you like it saltier, more sugar if you like sweet.
- Make a little crater in the center of the noodles. Crack the eggs into it. Scramble the eggs until done, and then mix in with the rest of the noodles.
- Serve it. Have chili flakes or chili sauce, sugar and fish sauce on the table so everyone gets the perfect taste they love. Enjoy!
