Make our Perfect Pad Thai recipe to get your noodle fix!
What is Pad Thai?
So exactly what is Pad Thai? In case you’re new to this one, I think it’s safe to say that it is probably the most famous Thai noodle dish. It’s made with rice noodles, some type of protein (chicken, shrimp, beef, pork, tofu, etc.), a few light veggies and eggs. Then everything is tossed together in a yummy Pad Thai sauce, made with an irresistible blend of sweet, savory, tangy, and spicy (if you’d like) fresh ingredients. And finally, sprinkled with the juice of fresh lime and lots and lots of crushed peanuts.
It is delicious.
What ingredients do I need?
This recipe is extremely simplified. It’s a quick and easy alternative to takeout that any beginner cook can accomplish, but it’s important to note that we skipped some traditional ingredients like dried shrimp, tamarind, pressed tofu, and bean sprouts. Absolutely necessary for our recipe: fish sauce. It’s easy to find at nearly every grocery store, and it adds an unbeatable punch of umami goodness. We vary the recipe and use our kaedama fresh ramen egg noodles for a little more bite and flavor.
