    • 1 tablespoon chopped Thai chile (Less if you don't like it hot)
    • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped garlic
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    • black pepper
    • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
    • 3 -4 tablespoons vegetable oil

      This was very good. Very flavorful. Next time I think I will use rice noodles rather than the egg noodles. The egg noodles were too thick for this recipe.

      I love this recipe and make it quite often because I grow Thai basil. I like to substitute beef for the chicken. I also cheat when I don't feel like chopping the chilies and use prepared chinese chili sauce (the kind with the tomato base). I always seed the tomatoes before adding.

      Don't try this. The recipe is screwed up and not edible. Probably typos, like no soy mentioned in the ingredients list. Also, there is WAY too much sugar in this. Awful. I will try this one next. Thai Drunken Noodles #56139 recipe by Ranikabani
