Pad See Ew [Thai Stir Fried Rice Noodles]

This is a Thai style stir fried flat rice noodles [broad strips of koay teow].  A very simple stir fry noodle which I think any novice cook can do.  The ingredients are quite simple and easy to cook.  It looks plain but surprisingly it is good especially with the chilli  vinegar sauce [Prig Nam Som].  
The vegetables also blends well with the noodles.    Most Chinese style stir fried noodles have mustard leaves added but this Thai noodle uses kailan.  My hubby told me 'Prig means chilli' and 'Nam Som means vinegar sauce'.   Hope he is correct.

[serves 2-3]
450-500 gm fresh flat rice noodles [koay teow] - cut broad strips
300 gm Chinese broccoli [kailan] - washed and cut broad pieces [stems and leaves separately]
1 tbsp chopped garlic
200 gm pork tenderlion - slice thin strips [lightly marinated with light soy sauce, pepper and cornstarch]
2 eggs [I used 1 duck egg]
1 tbsp oil
2 tbsp light soy sauce [I used 1 tbsp each of soy sauce and fish sauce]
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp sugar 
  1. Heat oil in wok, saute garlic until fragrant.  Add in meat slices, fry until meat is cooked.  Add in the kailan stems.  Stir to mix.  Add in the leaves, noodles and seasoning sauces.  Stir fry to mix well all the ingredients.

  2. Leave to cook for a few minutes, push aside and add in eggs.   Stir lightly to mix ingredients.
  3. Dish out noodles to serve once the egg is cooked.  Serve with chilli sauce [prig nam som].

Prig Nam Som - Chilli Vinegar Sauce for Noodles
8 Jalapeno red peppers [I used 2 red chillies and 3-4 small red chillies]
2 tbsp chopped garlic
1/2 cup white vinegar [I used apple cider vinegar]
1 tsp salt
  1. Coarsely blend chillies and garlic.  Mix with salt and vinegar [must be enough to cover the chillies].
  2. Serve with Pad See Ew [Stir Fried Flat Rice Noodles].
Note: The chilli sauce will thicken slight left overtime.  Can prepare earlier.

Wow Kimmy! This Thai-style Hor Fun looks very appetizing! Could feel the "Wok Hei"!

Hi Phong Hong, try it over the weekend, lol..

Hi Alvin, yes full of 'wok hei'. Not necessary to add other ingredients. Tasted even better if fried a serving at a time.

Hi Mui Mui, quite a simple stir fried noodles but I was surprised the kailan and chilli sauce blend well with it. Worth trying it.
