This original pad see ew recipe was one of my very first blog posts ever. I posted this in July 2011 and the images were smaller than stellar. I even used the wrong noodles LOL
Would anyone like to see?

This proves that the more you practice something, the better you can stay at it!
Pad see ew is my favorite Thai dish ever.
This is why I even made it to the blog back in 2011.
I wanted to share with all my favorite Thai dishes with everyone.
Pad see ew is what I order every time we go to a Thai restaurant.
I just love the slightly sweet flavored sauce that coats the noodles.
My favorite is with beef, but I've had it with chicken and recently my order consists of having pad see ew with soft tofu!
What is pad see ew?
It is a Thai stir fried noodle dish.
That means "soy sauce stir fried noodles" and it's one of the most popular Thai dishes at restaurants!
It's a great dish to start your Thai kitchen exploration!
How does the pad look ew taste?
It is salty and slightly sweet with a chargrilled flavor.
This is what made me fall in love with pad see ew.
The chargrilled flavor is achieved because the noodles are caramelized in wok.
What kind of meat can I put in the pad look like?
Sliced beef, thinly sliced chicken or even tofu!
What if I can't find the specific noodles?
These short, flat, wide rice noodles are shockingly hard to find.
It took me quite a while to find them and I went to an Asian grocery store to pick them up.
They don't always have them either, which in my opinion is swirling.
I like to keep it authentic and just like the restaurant, so I was determined to find them!
If you can't, you can just use the regular rice noodles that are easily found in any grocery store.
Can I use plain broccoli?
The Chinese broccoli is called Gai Lan, but if you can't find it, you can use plain broccoli, but the broccolini actually resembles Gai Lan more, so I'd probably choose that.
Where can I find the ingredients for the sauce?
You can find them all at the local grocery store in the international corridor.
Can I make this without eggs?

Pad See Ew
My favorite Thai noodle dish, and now you can make it at home! Preparation time: 5 min. Boiling time: 30 min. Total time: 35 min. Course: Dinner Cuisine: Thai Calories: 631kcal
For the sauce:
- 2 1/2 tablespoons oyster sauce
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons sweet soy sauce (see comments below)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 2 teaspoons of arrowroot powder
For the rest of the dish:
- 5 grams of flat, wide rice noodles
- 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 3/4 pound thin cut chicken
- 1 1/2 cup gai lan, chopped
- 2 large eggs
- In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the sauce.
- In a small saucepan, bring a pot of water to a boil and cook rice noodles according to the directions on the package.
- Put a wok over high heat and add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil to the wok. When hot, add the garlic and chicken to the wok. Work quickly, toss until chicken is mostly cooked through, then add gai-lan and cook until softened and wilted, approx. 5-7 minutes.
- Add eggs, incorporate, then drain the noodles and add to the wok.
- Pour the sauce on top and toss until nicely coated. Let the noodles sit for 1-2 minutes to allow it to caramelize, toss and repeat if desired.
- Divide into bowls and enjoy.
If you can't find sweet soy sauce, you can substitute 1/2 tablespoon of dark brown sugar. So you would only use 5 tablespoons of plain soy sauce and 1/2 tablespoon of dark brown sugar ONLY if you can't find sweet soy sauce.
