Pad See Ewe

Another Thai noodle dish I love is Pad See Ewe. This recipe is surprisingly easy. Easier than my Pad Thai recipe. I found several different ways to make Pad See Ewe, so I've altered them to come up with my own recipe. One thing that was pretty tricky was cooking the noodles. The noodles came out a little softer than I'd like, so I would suggest adding the noodles a little later in the cooking process or using the dry packaged noodles. The original recipe called for Chinese broccoli, which isn't readily accessible, so you can use regular broccoli.

3/4 lb. beef strips
1/2 Tbsp. fish sauce
1tbsp oyster sauce
a splash of dark sesame oil
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. fresh, flat rice noodles
2 Tbsp. light soy sauce
1 Tbsp. dark soy sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
1 egg
1/2 lb. chopped broccoli

1) Combine fish sauce, oyster sauce and sesame oil. Pour over beef. Sprinkle cornstarch over the beef mixture and knead the cornstarch into the beef. Marinate for 30 minutes.

2) Heat a wok to high heat and add 2 tablespoons of oil. Drop in the chopped garlic and stir. Add the sliced beef. Stir to cook until the beef is almost done and is no longer pink

3) Add rice noodles. Stir to break up the noodles. Add soy sauces and sugar. Stir to mix the seasonings into the noodles and beef. Open a spot in the middle of the pan, and drop the egg in. Scramble the egg until it is almost all cooked. Fold in the noodles and mix well.

4) Add the broccoli and stir until it is cooked, turn off the heat. Serve hot.
