Pad See Ew - Thai Stir Fried Rice noodles

Pad See Ew literally means Stir fry soy sauce noodles. For Pad Thai its on a sweet side, this noodles are on salty and sour balance. Basically you can add just fresh rice noodles, Chinese Broccoli, egg and sauces but I needed more vegetables so I have added mushroom too to give a meaty texture. The sauce for the noodles is the key, don't add more or less otherwise noodles will be dry if less or runny if its too much. If you can not find Chinese broccoli, add spinach and broccoli or broccolini.

You can use any protein in it, chicken is the best but for me I keep it simple.

For sauces you need, dark soy sauce, soy sauce, vegetarian oyster sauce, vinegar and sugar.

For noodles, if you can get fresh rice noodles its best, otherwise you can use any broad rice noodles or even pad Thai noodles.

Ingredients : 

1 packed fresh wide flat rice noodles or 7 oz. dried wide rice stick noodles
2 tbsp oil
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 large egg
5-6 chopped portebello mushrooms
4 stems Chinese broccoli or handful of spinach and broccoli or use bok choy

For sauce
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tbsp vegetarian oyster sauce - for meat, regular oyster sauce
2 tsp soy sauce - light is fine
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp white vinegar
2 tbsp water

Method : 

Trim the ends of  Chinese broccoli and separate leaves from stems.

Prepare noodles according to package if using dried, if using fresh , just cut the stripes length wise.

Mix all the ingredients under sauce and mix till sugar dissolves.

Heat the oil in a large wok or pan.

Add garlic, mushrooms, your greens and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Take it on side and crack the egg inside. scramble the egg and mix it everything.

Add noodles and sauce and mix it nicely till everything is covered in sauce.

Take it out and serve immediately.
