I eat pad thai at least once a week so thought I should finally try making it at home - it turned out really well! Would definitely make again.
Definitely not authentic with the ketchup added. The mixture of ketchup and lime didn't work too well -- doesn't even taste like pad thai. I will have to look for another pad thai recipe to try.
This was terrific! Not exactly pad Thai but it definitely has that flavor. It's easy and so much less expensive than using jarred pad Thai sauce. We added chili garlic paste to spice it up a little, but other than that, made the recipe as written. Excellent!
This was quite alright, husband liked it a lot, I found it a bit too ketchupy but I guess being a Heinz recipe, that's the idea. I cut back on the sugar, it would have been too sweet for my taste. My advice is not to skip on the fish sauce and use coriander leaves instead of parsley.
I'm a REAL newbie at this cooking thing, but chose this recipe because it sounded interesting. The wife & I both loved it! Prepared it pretty much the way it says, but missed the part about using rice vemicelli & used ordinary vermicelli. Of course the kitchen looked like a bomb went off after I was done
Amazing flavor! I used shredded chicken breast which added a great texture to the meal.
Not sure how authentic this is but it tastes great. Could use a little more heat so next time I will try a hotter pepper sauce.
Too much ketchup for my taste.
