Pad See Ew


Pad see ew is my favorite Thai dish and I never thought of making it at home, until I found this super easy recipe.  Most of the ingredients are staples in my kitchen, so I could quickly make this any day of the week!  Think I’ll make it tonight.

1 (14-ounce) package wide rice noodles
1 pound Chinese broccoli or broccoli rabe
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 cups thinly sliced cooked turkey, chicken, or beef
1/4 cup dark soy sauce
4 teaspoons sugar
2 large eggs


1. Place noodles in a large bowl and cover with boiling water. Soak until loose and pliable but not soft, about 8 minutes; drain and set aside.

2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Prepare an ice water bath by filling a bowl halfway with ice and water; set aside. Slice broccoli on the bias into 1-inch-thick pieces and blanch by cooking in boiling water until leaves are wilted and stems just give when pierced with a sharp knife, about 3 minutes. Place in ice water until cold, then drain and set aside.

3. Heat 4 tablespoons of the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. When it shimmers, add garlic and cook until it just begins to color, about 1 minute.

4. Add noodles, broccoli, turkey, soy sauces, and sugar and cook until warmed through, about 3 minutes.

5. Push noodle mixture to one side of the pan and add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Crack eggs into oil and scramble briefly until eggs begin to set, then let cook undisturbed until solid, about 3 minutes. Mix eggs into noodles and serve.
