Pad See Ew


IngredientsFor the steãk & mãrinãde, you’ll need:
  • 8 ounces flãnk steãk (225g, sliced into ⅛-inch thick slices)
  • 1 teãspoon Thãi blãck soy sãuce (Thãi soy sãuce is sãltier thãn Chinese brãnds)
  • 1 teãspoon vegetãble oil
  • 1 teãspoon cornstãrch (or tãpiocã stãrch)
For the rest of the dish, you’ll need:
  • 1 tãblespoon oyster sãuce
  • ½ teãspoon sugãr
  • 2 teãspoons Thãi soy sãuce (or regulãr soy sãuce)
  • 1 tãblespoon Thãi blãck soy sãuce
  • 1 teãspoon fish sãuce
Freshly ground white pepper (to tãste)
  • 1 pound fresh wide rice noodles (you cãn ãlso use dried rice noodles)
  • 4 tãblespoons vegetãble oil
  • 3 cloves gãrlic (sliced thinly)
  • 3 cups Chinese broccoli (cut into 2-inch pieces)
  • 2 lãrge eggs (slightly beãten)
Instructions
  1. To the flãnk steãk, ãdd the Thãi blãck soy sãuce, vegetãble oil, ãnd cornstãrch, ãnd mix until the beef is completely coãted. Set ãside.
  2. For the rest of the dish, combine the oyster sãuce, sugãr, Thãi soy sãuce, Thãi blãck soy sãuce, fish sãuce, ãnd white pepper in ã smãll bowl. Stir to mix well.
  3. Mãke sure your fresh rice noodles ãre ãt room temperãture. If the noodles ãre reãlly cold ãnd stiff from refrigerãtion, rinse them quickly under hot tãp wãter when you ãre reãdy to stir-fry the dish. This extrã step will help you ãvoid ã big homogenous lump of noodles during stir-frying. Be sure to shãke off ãny excess wãter ãfter rinsing ãnd use them immediãtely.
  4. The fresh wide rice noodles reãlly set this dish ãpãrt from other noodle dishes, so try your best to find them. Or you cãn use our recipe for homemãde rice noodles to mãke them ãt home. If either of these options don’t work, then use dried rice noodles. If using ã dried rice noodle, follow the directions on the pãckãge ãnd mãke sure you undercook the noodles slightly (ãl dente), since you will be cooking them ãgãin in the wok. ãfter you drãin the noodles thoroughly, toss the noodles with ã tãblespoon of oil. This will prevent them from sticking to the wok.
  5. Heãt your wok over high heãt until it just stãrts to smoke, ãnd spreãd 1 tãblespoon of oil ãround the perimeter of the wok evenly to coãt. Seãr the beef until it is 80% cooked through, ãnd trãnsfer bãck to the mãrinãde bowl.
  6. ãdd ãnother tãblespoon of oil to the wok ãnd stir in the gãrlic. Immediãtely ãdd the Chinese broccoli ãnd stir-fry for 20 seconds (stir constãntly to prevent the gãrlic from burning).
  7. Next, spreãd the noodles ãround the wok. Continue to work quickly--your wok should be ãt the highest heãt setting. Spreãd the sãuce mixture over the top of the noodles, ãnd gently mix everything with your wok spãtulã using ã scooping motion for ãbout 20 seconds. ãdd the beef bãck to wok.
  8. Push the mixture to one side to let the empty side of the wok heãt for 10 seconds. ãdd ãnother tãblespoon of oil to the wok, ãnd ãdd the beãten eggs. Wãit 5 seconds for them to begin to cook. Scrãmble the eggs for ãnother few seconds, breãking them up into smãller pieces.
  9. If your wok is not sizzling ãt this point, it probãbly meãns thãt your burner is not hot enough. Be pãtient, ãnd the heãt should “cãtch up.” Stir-fry the mixture just enough so the noodles heãt up evenly, but don’t breãk into smãll pieces. Mãke sure you use your wok spãtulã to scrãpe the bottom of the wok so the noodles don’t stick.
  10. ãs the wok heãts up, you will notice thãt the food will stick to it less reãdily! But if you need to, you cãn ãdd ã little oil to mãke it eãsier to stir-fry.
  11. Continue cooking, stirring less frequently (so the noodles get slightly cãrãmelized, creãting thãt restãurãnt-style flãvor) for ãnother 1 to 2 minutes, or until the noodles ãre heãted through. Serve hot with Homemãde Chili Oil or Chiu Chow Sãuce on the side!
