Whenever I go out with my family for a special night out,
I go to my favorite Thai restaurant Bangkok City in Dallas. They serve
the best Pad Thai, that I have ever tasted. Of course before my meal
I order a sweet Thai iced tea.On a hot day, it really hits the spot.
I don’t always get to go out. So I do make Pad Thai
at home. Here is how you can make it too!
8 Once Package Rice Noodles
3 Tablespoons of Oil
1 Clove of Garlic finely minced
1 Large Egg
1/4 Pound of Chicken Breast, cut into bit size pieces.
1/4 Cup of Water as you need it for the Rice noodles to soak in.
1/4 Cup of Fish Sauce
1/4 Cup of Sugar
1 Tablespoon of Paprika
1 Green onion cut into 1 inch lengths
1/4 Cup of Ground Roasted Peanuts
1/2 Cup of Bean Sprouts
1/2 Cup of Shredded Carrots
1/2 Cup of Shredded red or green Cabbage
2 Lemon Slices
Bowl of steamed rice or Steamed Jasmine Rice
1.The first thing you need to do is soak the rice noodles. They need to soak for about 2 hours, or until the noodles
are nice and soft. If they are really dry they can take up to 3 hours to soak.
2.Take a large frying pan or Iron Skillet and saute the chicken in oil until its brown drain and set aside.
3.Heat oil on medium high heat, and add garlic, and egg. Scramble the egg until done, You may need to turn your heat
4.Drain the noodles and add to the egg and garlic mixture in the pan. Stir fry until its translucent. Keep a small amount of water nearby
if you need it.
5. When the noodles are soft, add 1/4 Cup of fish sauce, 1/4 cup of sugar, 1 Tablespoon of paprika. Combine and reduce the sauce. Mix in the ground peanuts,bean sprouts, green onions, chicken and serve. You can add your garnish of red carrots, cabbage, lemon slices and even a pinch of fresh cilantro.
I have a bowl of steamed Jasmine rice, that I set in the center of the table, to go with this dish.
