Pad See Ew

Pad See Ew

The guys at work just stated how great my lunch smelled, and as I said it was pad see ew, they all giggled. Pad See Ew, that is it, and as it looks weird spelled out, it is a really great Thai dish. One of my friends made a Facebook post on a broccoli raab with sun dried tomatoes and chili, and from that moment on I could not get it off of mind. So upon a recent visit to my local grocery store, I picked up some broccoli raab and considered this to be a perfect ingredient to be used in this super simple stir fry.

Pad See Ew is typically found on many Thai menus, but it is really considered a street food by those living in Thailand. It basically means fried with soy sauce, and indeed it is. This dish is really comforting, and only takes a few minutes to make. Let’s get started.


  • 3 cups of boiling water
  • 1 package of dry rice noodles, thick cut
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 bunch of broccoli raab, chopped into 2-3 inch pieces, stems included
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 cup of pork, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 eggs

Begin by adding the boiling water to a large bow. Add the dried noodles and soak them until they begin to soften, roughly 3-4 minutes. Drain.

To a large skillet, add the oil and bring to a medium heat. Toss in the garlic and quickly cook for a minute. Add in your pork, and cook until no longer pink. Add in the noodles. Add the soy sauces, and sugar, and mix well. Make a well in the middle of the skillet and crack the eggs in the middle. Let cook for a minute or so, then scramble and let them cook until you mix in with the rest of the mixture. Toss in the broccoli raab and cook for a few minutes until it is fully cooked. This will only take a couple of minutes.

Plate and sprinkle with red chili flakes.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.

  1. So glad to see Pad See Ew recipe. It is truly easy and tasty. Better to use sweet thick soy sauce (See Ew Kon Wan). Looks delicious!
