Pad Thai Recipe
I totally have been addicted to Pad Thai...but it can be expensive!
I have made it a few times and just came up with an easy inexpensive way to make it!
First of all buy the Asian ingredients at an Asian market. I buy mine at Seafood City (located in tukwilla, WA (also available in CA or NV) the prices are cheaper than the local market.
*You have to soak the noodles for about an hour so plan ahead
1 (12oz) package of rice noodles (the thick kind) ($1.69)
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
1/4 cup vegie oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar ($1.99 bottle)
1/2 cup tablespoons fish sauce ($1.99 bottle)
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 tbls. crushed red pepper (I save the packets from pizza places)1/4 cup crushed peanuts (I buy the bulk at Costco, take some in a plastic baggie and crush with rolling pin)
3 green onions, chopped
2 cups bean sprouts
1 lemon wedge per person for taste
1.) Soak the rice noodles in luke warm water for 60 minutes. Drain and set aside.
2.) Heat butter in Wok or large heavy skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook completely. Remove chicken from wok and set aside.
3.) While chicken is cooking, mix white vinegar, fish sauce, white sugar, and red peppers in medium bowl.
4.) Heat oil in wok or large heavy skillet on medium high heat. Beat 4 eggs together in a small bowl until combined, add to oil, cook until firm. Break apart into small pieces (smaller than scrambled eggs). Add chicken, stir.
5.) Add sauce and drained noodles to pot. Cook until noodles become soft and transparent like.
