We love Pad Thai at our house, so wanted to try making it at home. I checked with our favorite Thai restaurant to see if the ingredients in this recipe were authentic. I was told that distilled white vinegar, paprika and soy sauce are never used in traditional Pad Thai, but rice vinegar and fish sauce are, so I made those substitutions, omitting the paprika, as I didn't have any on hand. Couldn't find tamarind paste, but found the "concentrate" which is just thinner, so doubled the quantity. Otherwise, followed the recipe as written. The family loved it! With my changes, the recipe was definitely 5 stars. Next time I'll use more ground peanuts, as we love the crunch!
