Pad See Ew

 
Growing up in a typical Asian family, rice is definitely one of the staple carbs in our family. However, I’ve never been a fan of rice. I’m more of a noodles / vermicelli girl. This Pad See Ew is perfect as a quick lunch or dinner meal. You could add any of your favorite vegetable or protein, it is that versatile.

Pad means stir-fry and See Ew means soy sauce, therefore the taste of this dish is prominently salty. To balance up the flavor, the use of sweet dark soy sauce is a must-ingredient in recipe. Alternatively, you could also add dark soy sauce with sugar. You’ll be rewarded with a toasty, aromatic plate of homemade awesomeness.

I'm using kway teow (thin rice noodles). Feel free to use hor fun (thick rice noodles) as well.

Cooking a perfect plate of Pad See Ew actually takes no more than 5 mins, the key to success is speed. So prepping all your ingredients before the actual cooking is crucial. Also, I realized it is almost impossible to cook a large batch of noodles without turning them into a clumpy mess, especially rice noodles. To combat this problem, I cooked them in 2 separate batches.

 

Ingredients:
200 g thick rice noodles (kway teow / hor fun) – spilt into 2 portions
150 g pork / chicken / beef – sliced thinly
150 g baby kai lan (Chinese broccoli) – cut into segments
2 eggs
4 cloves garlic – minced
Cooking oil

Sauce:
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp light soy sauce
½ tbsp golden mountain sauce / maggi seasoning sauce (if unavailable, substitute with soy sauce)
2 tbsp sweet dark soy sauce (do not skip this ingredient)
1 tsp sugar
White pepper

Serves 2

Mix together all the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl.

The amount of sauce for 2 portions.

Marinate the choice of meat with 1 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp soy sauce. The oil will prevent the meat from sticking together when cooking.

l

I’m using pork.

Set all the ingredients at your cooking station so they can be easily accessed during the stir frying process.

In a wok or deep frying pan, add in 1 tbsp oil and stir fry the meat until cooked through. Remove and set aside.

In same wok, add in 2 – 3 tbsp oil and minced garlic. Stir fry the garlic (try not to brown them) for 30 secs and add in 1 egg. Let it sit for a few secs before scrambling it.

l

 

Add in half of the baby kai lan and give it a quick toss.

Drop in one portion of the rice noodles and add in half of the sauce. Toss all the ingredients together with a spatula.

g

 

Add in half of the cooked meat.

k

 

Leave the noodles untouched for 15 secs to char the bottom slightly.

Flip the noodles and repeat the process. Give them a final toss and serve on a plate.

Repeat the same steps with the 2nd portion.

Garnish with red cut chilli and fried shallots if you like.
