This is a great recipe. Thank you for posting it, I have been seeking a simple and delicious pad thai recipe and this fit the bill!
The only thing I would say is the method for preparing the rice noodles should be changed. After much research I found that the preferred method is to pour boiling water over the noodles and soak for about 5 minutes until soft, then rise with cold water, and rinse again with cold water. I did mine this way and the texture of the noodles was perfect, and this was the first time I made pad thai.
The rest is like any recipe, this is a great start but tailor to your taste. I stir fried using a touch of veg oil, and some sesame oil, adding a couple of cloves of minced garlic as well. I have a non stick electric wok so little oil is necessary, making the dish healthier. I mixed rice vinegar, fish sauce, oyster sauce and sirachi with chicken broth in a bowl. This allowed me test the flavor, and pour it over the noodles while stir frying.
Thanks again. I love pad thai and now I can make it at home!
