The ingredients needed to make Easy, Accessible Pad Thai:
  1. Prepare 8 oz pad thai noodles, (sometimes labeled as pho noodles, but get the wide ones - they're about 1/3" wide uncooked)
  2. Get 2 eggs, whisked and lightly seasoned with salt
  3. Take 2 cups mung bean sprouts
  4. Prepare 1/2 lb. protein of choice (I prefer shrimp or chicken), cut in bite-sized pieces and lightly seasoned w/ salt & a pinch of sugar
  5. Make ready oil for frying
  6. Take 2 green onions, cut into 1.5"long segments
  7. Take 4 lime wedges to serve on the side
  8. Get cilantro, chopped, for garnish
  9. Take For the sauce:
  10. Get 3 Tablespoons ketchup
  11. Make ready 2.5-3 Tablespoons fish sauce
  12. Prepare 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  13. Get 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  14. Get 1-2 Tablespoons brown sugar (or white sugar if you don't have brown)
  15. Make ready 2 cloves garlic, minced
  16. Prepare 1 Tablespoon crushed chili flakes, or to taste (I'd say this makes the dish about a 7 on the heat scale)

It starts with fresh ingredients including rice noodles, chicken, shrimp, tofu, cilantro, bean sprouts, peanuts and scrambled eggs tossed in a delicious homemade pad thai sauce that is so good it tastes like it. Thai noodles are a type of rice noodle. Any thick rice noodle can be substituted in this dish. To add more protein to this meal, mix in a portion of sautéed chicken or shrimp.

Instructions to make Easy, Accessible Pad Thai:
  1. There are 2 options for prepping the noodles: 1) If you have time, soak the noodles in enough cold water to cover for 1 hour and then drain well. This results in a better texture. OR 2) Soak the noodles in enough hot water to cover for about 12 to 15 minutes or so, until all the noodles go completely limp when you pull them up by the handful out of the water, and drain well.
  2. Mix all sauce ingredients in a bowl and stir thoroughly to incorporate all the seasonings evenly.
  3. In a large wok or non-stick pan, bring a Tablespoon of oil up to medium high heat and saute/stir-fry your protein until cooked through. Set aside.
  4. Scramble your eggs and set aside with the other protein.
  5. Turn the heat to high, add 1 or 2 Tablespoons of oil to the pan, wait about 15 seconds to heat it up, and add in the noodles. Let the noodles sit for about 30 seconds so as not to disperse the heat then give a toss to redistribute them. Do this 3 or 4 times before adding in the rest of your ingredients. If your noodles start to stick together a little at this point, don't worry. When you add the liquid from the sauce, they'll separate again as you stir.
  6. Add in the rest of your ingredients - meat, eggs, sprouts, green onions, and sauce - and toss thoroughly to season each noodle strand.
  7. If you like some crispy/charred bits to your noodles, now is the time to add another Tablespoon of oil to the pan, and just let your noodles sit for a minute and a half to two minutes. This will crisp up some of the edges.
  8. Garnish to taste with chopped cilantro and serve with lime wedges. The added fresh lime juice gives the dish extra zip.
  9. Enjoy! :)
