Thai-style Noodles + GIVEAWAY

Thai-style Noodles

We’re partnering with Circulon to bring you a series of romantic simple gourmet recipes to encourage couples to cook together. You can read our other recipes here and here

If you and your significant other love ordering take-out food, but hate the greasy and sodium-loaded dish, why not re-create your favorite “take-out” right at home? It’s a great way to be inspired and learn new cooking techniques. Plus it’s romantic to cook together, right?

Stephen and I love to re-create our favorite take-out dishes at home such as the Thai-style Noodle. It’s our easy version of the popular Pad Thai dish you’ll find at Thai restaurants. It’s not the traditional Pad Thai recipe version, but it’s good and healthy enough for us to enjoy our favorite “take-out” dish at home. Once you have all the ingredients prepped and measured, making the stir-fry dish will be easy and quick. Before you start prepping, it’s best to soak the wide rice noodle in warm-hot water first. You want the noodles to soak at least 30 minutes to make it pliable. The noodles will soften up once you stir-fry them in the skillet.

If you want to add heat and spice to this dish, try topping it with some Sriracha and/or Sambal Oelek Chili Paste.

      Every time we eat out at a new Thai restaurant, Phad Kee Mao and Phad Thai are the two dishes that we size up how good the restaurant is.

  18. My favorite noodle dish is pancit palabok! As a Filipino, I love all kinds of pancit (noodle dishes), but my favorite is pancit palabok. This uses rice noodles, and has a tasty shrimp sauce (colored with annatto seeds). It is topped with pieces of cooked pork, cooked whole shrimp, cubes of fried tofu, slices of hard-boiled egg, flakes of smoked or salted fish, fried garlic, and green onion. Finally, each serving is seasoned to taste with fish sauce and kalamansi (Filipino citrus) juice. Yum! Hungry now…

      Hi Josh! My favorite fish sauce is Red Boat. I’m Filipino, and for cooking, I don’t mind the Filipino brands like Rufina or Datu Puti, but once I discovered Red Boat, that’s all I use for finishing, dips, etc. It’s much smoother! I hope this helps! =)

    • Donna (dang that's delicious) — April 21st, 2016 @ 12:27 pm

      I agree with Marisa. We use Red Boat for fish sauce. You can find that brand at most large grocery stores. Even Trader Joe’s sells it. If you cannot find one near you, Amazon is a great source. :)
