      This is one of my "usual" whenever I visit my local favorite (the Cheesecake Factory restaurant has very decent Pad Thai). It's so easy to make, the most difficult task was to cut up the pork loin. I left out the lemongrass since I couldn't find it anywhere. The missing ingredient did not compromise the end result. The leftover looks much healthier than the one from the restaurant, no grease collected at the bottom of the container. Thank you for sharing your receipe.

      Sue L and everyone else, the lemon grass is with the spices in the gormet section of all thge spices in the grocery store. I think it does add to the taste. I really love pad Thai and I like it spicey so I added some extra Thai chili peppers

      My husband and I thought this was good but not enough to make again. This recipe seemed to take more work than others and like the others, does not have enough sauce. We used chicken.
