Pad Kee Mao (Drunken Noodles)
This delicious Thai recipe is my take on the top 5 pad kee mao recipes on the net! Adjusted to taste like our favorite nearby Thai place, this recipe was a big hit with the family and did not make it through the night.
Starting with the vegetables, cut everything to an even consistency. You want everything about the same size/thickness so it cooks evenly in the pan/wok. To give you an idea of about how thin I cut everything, I try to do everything consistent with the bean sprouts. And I cut larger bean sprouts in half. If you're using snow peas, don't forget to snap the ends off and take off the strings! I cut mine into thin strips lengthwise. Chopping everything like this makes it much, much easier since everything cooks pretty quickly once you get going.
For vegetables, you can use shiitaki mushrooms, carrots, bamboo shoots, baby corn, and water chestnuts. For protein, you can use shrimp, pork, fried egg, or tofu.
