Meat (beef), starch (fresh rice noodles), greens (chinese brocoli), eggs and onions (the essentials for many) and the seasonings: All ingredients for Phad See-ew Thai Noodles!

When I went to Wing’s, they gave me a variety of products to play around with. One was their fresh rice noodles, made with rice they grind themselves. I decided to make Phad Sew- Asian comfort food- starch (rice noodles), meat (beef) and greens (Chinese brocoli) and fried egg (essential to complete any meal!) all cooked together in a wok- with some soya sauce and onions for good measure! Here’s how to make it; it’s easy peasy!

You need:

300g of fresh rice noodles

300g of chinese brocoli, cut into 2 inch lengths

2 sliced onions

200g of beef, like faux filet, in 1 1/2 inch strips

2 tbsp of dark soya sauce mixed with a bit of brown sugar

1 tbsp of tamari

1 tbsp of fish sauce


2 eggs, beaten

pepper (mix of white, black and Szechuan in my case)

Cook the beaten egg in oil over high heat. Turn it once, take it out and set aside.

Chop your eggs into strips

Sauté onions and then set aside

Seize your beef strips over high heat and then set aside

Sauté your chinese brocoli quickly because you don't want it to get overcooked (30 seconds)

Put the beef, brocoli and onions back together in the wok.

Put the noodles in boiling water just long enough to separate them and then put them in the wok with the other ingredients. Work fast! You don't want your noodles or brocoli to overcook as mine did while I was trying to get nice photos!

Season your Phad See-ew with fish sauce, pepper and soya sauce
