  1. Soak rice noodles in warm water for 20 minutes. Drain, and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the ketchup, soy sauce, lime juice, sugar, curry powder, peanut butter and chile paste. Set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until juices run clear. Add the green peppers, and saute for a minute. Move the chicken and pepper to one side of the pan, and pour in the eggs. Cook eggs, stirring constantly until firm and scrambled, stir in the chicken and peppers. Add shrimp and pour in 1/4 of the ketchup mixture along with bean sprouts and noodles. Mix and cook for a few minutes until shrimp are pink. Add the remaining sauce, and cook until heated through. Garnish with green onions and chopped peanuts, and serve.

zero stars- I should have read the first review before trying this recipe. It was indeed AWFUL- the sauce has way too much ketchup in it and I wasted a lot of expensive ingredients.

first of all, ketchup can be used for thai food--i learned to make pad thai WITH KETCHUP from my host family in thailand. this recipe though would be better if you substituted sweet chili sauce...

it tasted nothing like Pad Thai.

I also wish I had read the reviews before trying this. Even with significant modifications (way less ketchup, etc.) it was STILL bad.

Strange version with funky taste. The curry (?), that didn't help. Bell pepper was a weird addition as well, especially that much. Sometimes I add 1 small Thai red pepper. Needs tamarind and fis...

Will not do this one again. True pad thai does not have peanut butter in the sauce, but I thought it might turn it into a tangy peanut sauce like you get for dipping at some oriental restaurants...

I made this and followed the recipe (no substitutions), we disliked it. The sauce was too tomato-y and I also felt like the sauce to meat ratio was too high.
