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.
