Pad Thai Recipe


  • 4 oz dried rice noodles
  • 1.5 Tbsp tamarind paste
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1.5 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • ½ onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 5 oz chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.5 cups bean sprouts
  • ¼ cup chopped peanuts

  6. Add bean sprouts, noodles, then Sauce.
