Instead of ordering Thai takeaway next weekend, try cooking this simple soy sauce noodle recipe yourself. You will surprised how easy and delicious it is. While Pad See Ew is not as well known as the popular Pad Thai, it is common in Thailand and I find the flavour even more tasty.

Traditionally sliced chicken or pork is used, however, you can also use minced pork (which I have used) or chicken. My version is simpler as it only uses sweet soy sauce instead of light soy, dark soy and sugar. It is also best to use fresh rice noodles, these can be found in most asian grocery stores. This dish serves 4.

3 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 cloves garlic, crushed
500g sliced/minced chicken or pork
1 bunch Chinese broccoli
700g fresh wide rice noodles
1/3 cup sweet soy sauce (kecap manis)

1. Cut the broccoli into about 7cm pieces separating the leaves from the stems. Cut any thick stems into half to make them easier to cook.

2. Separate to noodles into single pieces as they tend to be all stuck together in the bag.

3. Heat 1T of the oil in a wok and pour in the eggs, lightly scrambling them until cooked. Remove from wok and set aside.

4. Add further 1T of oil and fry garlic for about 20 seconds until fragrant, not burnt. Add meat and stir fry for a couple of minutes until brown but not cooked through.

5. Add stems of broccoli and continue to cook until almost tender.

6. Add noodles and stir fry ingredients together until combined.

7. Add broccoli leaves and cook until leaves nearly wilted.

8. Add sweet soy sauce, combine. Then add cooked eggs and stir fry until all combined.

9. Serve and enjoy.
