How to make Pad Thai

This recipe was on the back of a bag of rice stick noodles which I bought to make another dish with. So, I thought I’d try it and see how it was. It was wonderful!  I added chicken to our dish when I added the garlic.

8 ounces rice sticks (dry)
3 T. vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
3 eggs
4 Tablespoons fish sauce
1 green onion, cut into 1 inch lengths
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon paprika
1 cup bean sprouts
1/4 cup ground peanuts

In large bowl, soak rice sticks in warm water for 30-45 minutes until tender but firm. Heat oil in a large frying pan, then add garlic. Add egg and scramble until done; reduce temperature.

Drain rice sticks well and add to egg mixture. Increase temperature and stir fry noodles until they are translucent, adding up to 1/4 cup water if needed.

When the rice sticks begin to stick together add fish sauce, sugar, paprika, and green onion.

Continue to cook mixture until dry. Garnish with bean sprouts and peanuts. You can also add tofu, prawns, chicken or beef.
