"I'm not going to lie and say this is authentic Thai noodles, but I've come up with my own version that my husband really, really likes. Feel free to use whatever vegetables or meat. I think the sauce is what made my husband like it so much. It's spicy!" — SHARONLIN

This recipe is AMAZING! I just made it Sunday and I already want to make it again. It's Wednesday.
Based on the reviews, I thought this was going to be great, but I was disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly, but the noodles seemed to suck up all the sauce and the dish was dry. Also we thought the fish sauce taste was much too strong. Sorry, but I won't be making this again.
I made this exactly as is except omitted the optional sliced red chile pepper. Excellent! It made so much that I brought to my in-laws and they all really liked it.
Loved this! Easy and delicious. We cut down on the chili oil and omitted the hot red chile pepper so that our kids could enjoy it too.
This was very good, but VERY spicy! I even left out the chili oil, and holy cow it was hot! I ended up using almost a cup of melted creamy peanut butter with some rice vinegar and brown sugar and stirred that in.... still spicy, but much easier to eat. This also made a very large quantity. Lastly, I am no major chef, but the prep time an this was about 60-75 minutes.... this is no quick weeknight meal. BUT, again, thank you so much for posting!
I followed the recipe pretty closely and I love the ingredients. I added a half of a red bell pepper with the celery and onions, I also added some chopped green onions with the peanuts and red chili peppers at the end. The only part that didn't come out well where the rice noodles. I knew when it said to boil the water and let them sit for 10 minutes that they were going to be too soft but I did it anyway and they were. Next time I'll put some warm water in a pan and let them soak until they are soft, not soggy.
It was great, I doubled the sauce because I like everything drenched so it was a little soupy in the end (plus the TJ noodles were 14oz.) the boyfriend liked it more than I did although it was almost restaurant quality.
Awesome recipe! Not your average pad Thai with peanut flavor, but it tastes exactly like one of the top Chinese restaurant's pad Thai in Cleveland. I did use Mai Fun noodles because we love a lighter tasting pad Thai. Great recipe overall.
