Pad See Ew

I’m normally not a big fan of Thai food.  However, I recently had some pineapple fried rice from a Thai restaurant and I loved it.pad-see-ew-1

Ever since then, I decided to give Thai food another try.  I can’t say that I love all Thai food now, but there are some Thai dishes that I do enjoy.pad-see-ew-2

Pad See Ew happens to be one of those dishes.  I’ve always liked flat rice noodles, and the seasonings that are in this dish are often in other Asian dishes.pad-see-ew-3

I like to use fresh flat rice noodles for this dish.  These noodles need to be used quickly since they are not refrigerated.  As a result, they will become moldy if not used within a day or two.

For the Sauce:

For the Pad See Ew:
  • 8 ounces fresh flat rice noodles
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 6 ounces bok choy, chopped
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  1. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the sauce. Stir to combine.
  2. Loosen the noodles so that they do not stick together.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet, over high heat. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the chicken and sauté until the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the noodles and bok choy to the chicken and stir to combine. Sauté until bok choy has wilted, about 3 minutes.

Stir the eggs a few times and then push the noodle mixture back onto the eggs, stirring to combine. Continue to sauté the noodle mixture until the eggs are cooked.
  6. Serve hot.
