    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 150 g pork fillets, cut into thin strips (chicken breast is a fine substitute)
    • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
    • 10 large green shrimp, halved lengthwise (frozen ones, thawed, are fine)
    • 1 garlic clove, crushed (I use 2-3) (optional)
    • 1 egg, beaten (I use 2)
    • 150 g flat rice noodles (preferably Banh Pho)
    • 1 dash white pepper
    • 250 g bean sprouts, washed and drained
    • 1/2 cup spring onions or 1/2 cup shallot, chopped finely

    Combined Seasoning



    1. 1
      Soak noodles in hot water while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
    2. 2
      Prepare the ingredients and place near the wok.
    3. 3
      Heat the wok on medium heat and lightly fry the pork.
    4. 4
      When half cooked, add the prawns and garlic.
    5. 5
      Stir-fry until pork and prawns are cooked.
    6. 6
      Add beaten egg to the mixture, stirring for about 30 seconds.
    7. 7
      Turn heat to high and add drained noodles and combined seasoning.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle in the white pepper and chilli powder.
    9. 9
      Toss to combine, reduce heat and allow to cook undisturbed for approximately 2 minutes, turning once.
    10. 10
      Push noodles to the back of the wok and add sprouts and spring onions, tossing the noodles on top and allowing them to cook for approximately 1 minute.
    11. 11
      Stir well and serve garnished with peanuts, spring onions, coriander and lime/lemon wedges.
    12. 12
      Note: the lime/lemon juice takes some of the heat out of the chili!

      Yum....Loved the flavors of this dish. I used one large egg, and did not use the peanuts instead I finely chopped up one red chili pepper for the garnish and even more heat!

      This was a fantastic pad thai recipe. I did add more chilli paste, owing to a rather spicy palate, and I also left out the beansprouts as I'm not a huge fan. I love the contrast from the different toppings.

      This was easy and fast to make, and tasty. I did not have dried shrimp on hand so I used rice seasoning that also contained salt sugar seaweed and sesame seed. Turned out great! Next time I will cut the pork in very very thin strips and double the chili paste...
