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...
