  • Bring a small pot of water to a boil; cook the broccoli in the boiling water until cooked and still firm, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the garlic in the hot oil until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the sliced steak; cover the skillet and cook until the meat is just turning from pink to grey, 5 to 7 minutes. Whisk the water and cornstarch together in a bowl; pour into the skillet along with the oyster sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce, and sugar. Add the rice noodles and broccoli and stir to mix evenly. Season with salt and pepper. Allow the mixture to simmer while you prepare the egg.

  • Prepare a small skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-low heat. Cook the egg in the prepared skillet until cooked through and the yolk is solid. Add the cooked egg to the other skillet and stir to incorporate. Serve hot.

If you're reading this recipe and thinking "eh I don't know. Sounds kinda weird..." Try it! I'd never had pad see ew before and I was a little worried about the "ew" part. IT'S SO GOOD! Beef & broccoli meets pad thai! Fish sauce and oyster sauce aren't as nasty as they sound and you can get them super cheap ( 1/bottle) at an Asian grocer. I added rice vinegar and doubled the sauce (2 Tbsp rice vinegar 6 Tbsp oyster sauce 2 Tbsp fish sauce 2 Tbsp sugar). Also added 2 eggs instead of 1. Used a whole good sized crown of broccoli. Used "round sandwich steak" which is already cut thin. No salt just some black pepper. Try it you'll like it!

Nothing authentic about this recipe. I have eaten Thai food across North America and this is bland bland bland.

Pad See Ew is one of my teenage daughter's favorite dishes so I have set out to learn how to make it. I used this recipe as a jumping off point following it mainly for the ingredient proportions. Instead of beef I used chicken and gai lan instead of broccoli. I also found some fresh rice noodles at an Asian market (see photo). I used the sauce ingredients as listed but added 1 T rice vinegar. Technique-wise I stir fried the broccoli and set it aside. Then I stir fried the chicken added the noodles then the sauce. Once they were heated through I added the beaten egg. When the egg was cooked I folded in the broccoli. It turned out well and my daughter approved (she ate 2 servings!).

This is an Americanized version of a wonderful dish. There are important ingredients missing here and some extra steps that are not necessary. The water and cornstarch slurry is not needed. If you use brown sugar in place of white and do not use to much soy and other sauces a nice sauce will emerge in the end. Also no need to pre cook the broccoli simply stir fry it the let it simmer in the sauce while meat cooks. Also no need for another extra dirty pan with cooking the egg just push all ingredient aside while still stir frying and add egg too wok and quickly scramble in same pan. Also where is the fresh cilantro to toss in at the end and the traditional thai chili sauce? A lot of extra work and missing ingredients.

This is a good recipe. I used chicken instead of beef and thin slices of asparagus instead of broccoli. Like some of the other reviewers I added a bit of sesame seed oil and rice wine vinegar. I also added a heaping teaspoon of prepared asian chili sauce to the liquid ingredients. At the end I put in chopped scallions and a bunch of thai basil. The end result was delicious but you do need an extremely hot pan and lots of oil...I used a combination of grapeseed oil and coconut oil...oils that can withstand a very high heat. I also have an induction range and put it at the power setting which is hotter than most conventional settings can get. This high heat is what sears the noodles and gives the dish that distinct flavor. I would omit the cornstarch altogether next time since the high heat and starches from the noodles absorbs all the liquid. I've tried a similar recipe but w/o the high heat and adding chicken broth as a way to keep the noodles from sticking to the pan. This did not turn out. The trick here is to use a seasoned pan extremely high heat and lots of oil.

great flavor! 1 cup of broccoli is not enough though. 3 is about right. I made it without the beef.

Love this reciope. Taste just like my fav resturant makes it. I use shrimp or pork instead of beef. And sub the brocooli with Gai Lan when I can find it.

This recipe tasted authentic and straight from a restaurant. I used black pepper instead of white pepper because I couldn't find any at the store I went to. I also used New York Sirloin Steak. It also needed to be a bit sweeter so I through in about 3 tbsp of brown sugar while I mixed everything together towards the end. Overall great recipe!

I thought this was really good and very tasty but the sauce doesn't have the same taste as this dish at a Thai restaurant. As noted in one of the other reviews next time I'll try adding 1 tbsp of rice wine vinegar and see if that gets the sauce closer. I also substituted chicken for beef and used a whole broccoli crown. Definitely one to make again!
