How To Make Pad See Ew (Thai Stir-Fried Noodles):
For The Noodles:
- 8 oz (1/2 lb) dried wide rice stick noodles
- 6 oz (2-3 pieces) (boneless skinless chicken thighs trimmed of excess fat and sliced)
- 6 oz (5-6 stalks) Chinese broccoli (Gai Lan) rinsed and cut into small pieces
- 3 cloves garlic (minced)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
For The Sauce:
- 3 tbsp light soy sauce
- 2 tbsp oyster sauce
- 2 tbsp water or to taste
- 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
- 1 tbsp white vinegar
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
Start by mixing all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
Next, prepare the rice noodles by following the package directions, but cook them for a minute or two lower then what it says. Once they have finished cooking, rinse them with cold water, drain them, and set them aside.
Now, turn the stove on medium heat and place a wok on it. Then heat up olive oil in the wok and add the garlic. Saute until fragrant. After that, add the chicken and it for approximately 2-3 minutes or just until cooked through.
Then push everything onto one side of the wok, crack in the eggs, and scramble them. Add the rice noodles, Chinese broccoli, and sauce.
Finally, toss everything together and cook the mixture for about 1-2 minutes or until the noodles are evenly coated and caramelized. Also, feel free to add more water if needed.
Serve immediately while still hot and enjoy!
