I always try to eat delicious food. Unfortunately I don't have that much money, so I have to cook a lot of it at home. But thats OK because I love cooking and I love eating at home with my wife. This is a website with my favorite recipes and a little bit of commentary.

Pad Se Eu

I have posted before about an excellent Thai food place in Chicago called Penny's Noodle Shop. One of my wife's favorite dishes there is Pad Se Eu. Penny's menu describes it as follows:

Wide rice noodles stir fried in a lightly sweetened soy sauce with egg, broccoli and your choice of chicken,
beef or tofu ...... $6.40
I looked through my cookbooks and finally found a good recipe in the book Real Thai.
I have modified the recipe a little to our tastes.

Pad Se Eu
Kwaytiow Paht Si-Yu

2 T soy sauce with 2 T brown sugar mixed in
1 T black bean sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1 T red curry paste
1 T chopped garlic
About 3 cups broccoli
1/2 pound chicken, very thinly sliced
flat rice noodles (we ended up using fresh fettuccine noodles)
2 eggs

Heat a wok over medium high heat. Add a little oil. Saute the garlic briefly and then add the broccoli. When the broccoli is just starting to soften remove it to a plate. Next stir fry the chicken and remove to the plate. Scramble the eggs and remove to the plate. Finally add the noodles to the wok and dump in all the rest of the ingredients. Stir fry
until heated through.
