Thai Stir Fried Wide Rice Noodles, "Pad Si-iew"

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 7 mins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice about 8 ounces of beef paper thin (you might persuade your butcher to put it through the bacon slicer) and marinade the beef in the marinade for about an hour.
  2. Cook the noodles until tender, in plain water, then put in cold water to halt the cooking process.
  3. Heat a wok and a little oil to stir fry the marinaded beef until it just begins to cook (because it is cut very thin, this is quite quick so be careful not to overcook).
  4. Add the noodles and the remaining ingredients, and stir until blended and heated through.
  5. Taste the sauce for balance of flavors (it should be just on the sweet side with a salty tang).

Excellent recipe! I made this with some Thai Ribs and we really loved it. Don't let all the ingredients scare you. It goes together quickly, and after all a good recipe is worth a few minutes to prepare! I will definately be passing this on to my friends, and having it often at my house.

A nice blending of flavors with just enoough heat to make it flavorful without being overpowering. I used eye of round that was partially frozen. This made slicing the meat much easier. I did use the coconut milk because without it, I think it would have been dry. I took Roosie's lead and steamed the broccoli until crisp tender. I added about 4 green onions cut into 1 inch pieces when adding the meat. This made 3 servings for our family dinner. DH and DS both loved it! Thanks.
