Tasty Thai Noodles

It’s no secret that the wonderful world of Thai food tops my list of favorites. Whether it’s a hot-n-spicy bowl of soup, a flavorful Spicy Beef Salad, or my personal favorite, a slurp-worthy bowl of noodles, odds are, I’ll be going back for seconds. The ingredient list may be a little lengthy, but the intense umami flavor that comes out in these dishes is completely worth the effort.

It’s not uncommon to find elements of spicy, sweet, savory and sour all in one dish, and this recipe is no exception. These ‘Tasty Thai Noodles’ channel the flavors of Pad See Ew, a classic Thai noodle dish that happens to be one of my favs.

For the ingredient list, you should find most of what you need at your go-to grocery store, but you’ll have better luck finding these ingredients at a great price at your local Asian Market. Not only will they have a larger variety of sauces and noodles than your regular grocery store, but they usually have great deals on produce!

The biggest element to this dish is the sauce. There are a lot of variations to Pad See Ew and you can always make adjustments to suit your taste, but the basic ingredients we’re using here are oyster sauce, sweet soy sauce, low sodium soy, fish sauce, chili oil and vegetable oil.

For the noodles, look for wide rice noodles (bonus points if you can find rice flake noodles)! These little rectangular sheets of noodles are perfectly bite sized and work really well with this dish.

Broccoli is another classic ingredient in this dish. Look for the leafier Chinese broccoli at your Asian Market, but if you can’t find it, broccoli crowns will work just fine. We’re also adding beef and tofu, packing these noods with tasty proteins, but feel free to customize your add-ins!
