Pad See Ew is a popular Thai stir fried noodle dish that is easy to make at home in just 30 minutes! Made with wide rice noodles, a sweet and salty sauce, Chinese broccoli, eggs and beef. 




8oz rice noodles – extra large


1/2 cup oyster sauce

2 tbsp dark soy sauce

2 tbsp light brown sugar

Stir Fry

3 tbsp peanut oil

6 stalks Chinese Broccoli

3 large cloves garlic, crushed


8oz skirt steak, sliced thin (about 1/4″ thick)

2 large eggs

Optional Garnish

sesame seeds

green onion

lime slices



Soak the rice noodles in warm water*


Combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl

Whisk vigorously until the sugar is dissolved, set sauce aside

Stir Fry

Heat oil in a large, heavy bottomed wok** over medium-high heat

Trim the bottoms off the Chinese Broccoli stalks and slice them in half vertically

Add the broccoli to the skillet, working with a wooden spoon sauté about 3 minutes until the broccoli leaves start to wilt

Add the garlic and a pinch of salt, sauté 1 more minutes

Add the beef, sauté about 3 minutes

Using tongs, carefully remove the broccoli and beef from the wok and set aside

Add the noodles to the skillet

Pour the sauce over the noodles

Using tongs carefully toss the noodles so they are evenly coated in the sauce

Using a wooden spoon, press the noodles to one side of the wok to open up a little space on the bottom to cook the eggs

Crack the eggs into the wok and use a fork to quickly scramble

Carefully toss the egg in with the noodles

Add the broccoli and beef back to the wok, toss to incorporate, cook 2 more minutes

Serve hot with a sprinkle of sesame seeds, green onion and a slice of lime


*Check package for instructions on how long to soak. You may also use fresh rice noodles.

**It’s easiest in a wok, but if you don’t have one you can use a large skillet instead
