Title: Need Thai recipe
Post by: gordonstrong on April 18, 2011, 12:15:10 PM
Anyone got a tried and true recipe for Pad See Ew aka Pad Sew aka Pad Seuw?  Had a great version last weekend while judging the first round in Indianapolis at a little place called Siam Square.  They call it Pad Seuw there, but I've seen those other names too.

Also when I do this I use my kettle burner and a big-ass wok, and do it outside, of course.

+1  A big wok with intense heat. Try using peanut oil....great flavor.

You may have seen this but...Here's a step by step recipe and process.

Thanks guys.  The place I went to used some baby bok choy, chopped up, along with the chinese broccoli.  Also looked like less meat in the overall ratio (I chose pork, but think shrimp would be good too).  Just wanted to check on the technique and sauce.  Oh, and how are the noodles best obtained?  Are they fresh or dried in the market?  Any brands/labels to look for?  I have a feeling making them at home will take some practice.

You should be able to find those in just about any "asian" market, and I'd say go with fresh if possible. Dried will be OK but need to be rehydrated like dry rice stick noodles.

Are they just called fresh rice noodles, and are of the right shape?  Or do they come in sheets or something and you have to cut them to size?

"Sen yai" noodles are what you're looking for.

I think it's the regular wide rice noodles. Should be several different brands to choose from.
