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.

Thank you!! Pad Si-iew is one of our favorite dishes at our favorite Thai place and I've been searching to find ways to make my own. This was absolutely fantastic. We did not add the coconut milk, but added a drop of cream, but I think it would be best with the coconut milk- it needs a bit of creaminess. I followed the recipe just about exactly- I used flank steak for the beef and used a little more broccoli than the recipe calls for (maybe 1.5-2c) and added a chopped red bell pepper. The recipe doesn't say how to cook the broccoli and I was really scared that if I cooked the beef, then added the broccoli that the beef would get really overdone. So I just steamed the broccoli until almost done, then added it with the sauce ingredients. Absolutely delicous- I will definitely make again. Just one more thing, though: This makes A LOT. I would say it has 6 servings when prepared as described, not 2. But this is definitely not a bad thing. I am looking forward to leftovers tomorrow. Thanks for posting- this is a great one.

This was good. The noodles didn't quite brown the way they do at my favorite restaurants. I would have liked it spicier. I didn't add the coconut milk at the end, but it says that is optional. Nice rich flavor, though.

Very nice! Did as instructed but added a little Sambal Olek for added kick.
