I had some pork & broccoli in the fridge that I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with... and then I decided to do something Thai!
This recipe is really easy to whip up and we both devoured it AND I had enough leftover for dinner the next night and my lunch for the next day!
Approx 4 Servings
- 16oz box Flat Thai Rice Noodles
- 1 Egg
- 2 heads broccoli, chopped into florets
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- (3) Pork Chops sliced thinly into strips (you could also use Chicken or Beef if you wish! Pork Chops were what I had in the fridge that I needed to use!)
- 2 Tbsp oil, plus 1/4 Cup White Wine
- MARINADE (for meat)
- 2 Tbsp. Oyster Sauce
- 4 Tbsp Soy Sauce (I used reduced sodium)
- 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
- STIR-FRY SAUCE:
- 3/4 Cup Soy Sauce (I used reduced sodium)
- 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
- 1/2 tsp white ground pepper
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (if you don't like heat, don't add this!)
- Stir together the meat marinade: oyster sauce, brown sugar & soy sauce. Dump marinade over thinly sliced meat and stir together well. Set aside & let marinate while you prep everything else. (I let mine marinate about an hour while I did yoga too!)
- Prep Rice Noodles: (Read side of Rice Noodle Box) Place Rice Noodles in large bowl and fill bowl with HOT tap water. Let sit 25-30 minutes. Drain Noodles and set aside to use later.
- Next, I prepped the stir fry sauce. (To save dishes I used the same bowl I had mixed up the meat marinade in) Soy, Brown Sugar, White Pepper and Cayenne. Set aside.
- Make sure your broccoli is chopped and your garlic is minced and near stove for use.
- Place a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tbsp oil. (if you have a wok this would be the pan of choice, but I don't have one!)
- Add garlic and saute for about 30 seconds or until fragrant.
- Add the meat (with marinade) to the pan and stir-fry approximately 3 minutes. If your pan becomes dry add the white wine.
- Add the broccoli and continue stir-frying for approx 3 minutes.
- Push all ingredients in pan to outside edges and crack the egg in the center of the pan. Scramble the egg. Once scrambled mix in with rest of pan ingredients.
- Add noodles slowly and pour the stir fry sauce over them. Lift & turn the noodles to mix with all ingredients and the sauce. Make sure everything is coated well. Noodles should become softer. Mix & turn noodles about 2 two minutes.
- Taste test noodles to make sure you like the taste. Add more soy until you like the taste.
- I served our Pad See Ew with a sweet thai chili sauce on the side and a Siracha Chili Sauce on the side.
