Very bland The main ingredient missing is tamarind paste. Can't make a tasty pad Thai without it. Also adding cilantro and fresh Thai chiles adds more flavor. I doubled the amount of shrimp and added ground chicken as well. Soy sauce is not a substitute for fish sauce. Can substitute agave or honey for the brown sugar.
Easy Pad Thai This is the first time I have made Pad Thai and was surprised how easy it was. Really liked the wide rice noodles. I didn't have fish sauce so I used soy sauce. Would like to try the fish sauce next time. I also used pea shoots because I couldn't find pea pods. I would also use more shrimp next time. Pros: Easy to prepare very tasty Cons: Needed more shrimp
I found this recipe very good and easy. I did slice my shrimp in half and marinated them in chili oil while preparing the rest of the ingredient. Mixed together the brown sugar with the wet ingredients and poured them on at the end. As well as added cilantro with lime juice before serving. Will make again!
Will Keep on Hand This meal is super easy to make and takes no time at all to prepare and cook. I added 2 tsp extra of chili & garlic sauce and fresh cilantro at the end and it really kicked it up a notch. My family loves it with chicken more then shrimp but ate both meals. Pros: quick affordable and healthy Cons: I like it with chicken more then shrimp
Not loving this particular recipe When the recipe called for 4 oz of noodles I knew something was wrong and then when the egg went in first I felt more wrong about the dish. This was the worst Pad Thai dish I have ever made and I've made about 3 previously that were awesome and have had Pad Thai a million times. This recipe is lacking in so many ways and I can only expect that someone who has never ever had Pad Thai may think it's good. It was all wrong on every level. Not making this one again and trying to forget I ever did. Sorry EW..while many of your recipes are great; this one is just nasty.
More veggies I would use 1 cup of scallions instead of half a cup 1 chopped onion and carrot sticks. It will also add more color to it. And garnish with cilantro. Pros: good flavor healthy easy to make Cons: not enough vegetables and too many noodles
Really good! This was great. I used slightly more noodles doubled the sauce and used thinly sliced chicken breast in place of the shrimp. It was full of flavor! I topped it with cilantro which was a nice touch to the flavors. Pros: Easy to make
This dish was amazing! I added some cloud ear mushrooms fresh Thai basil and cilantro I had on hand and I like really spicy food so I added in 3 Thai red chillies and some siracha sauce. It was a big hit!!
Definitely need to add to this one. I added cilantro soy sauce red onion or shallots and lime juice to doctor it up a bit. This preparation is a lot easier than others so with the extra ingredients it is a keeper.
This was wonderful! i followed this recipe without changing much! instead of adding sugar i added splenda and i just added some extra onions! but i loved it! It was almost too tasty to believe it was healthy!
delicious! This was easy to make...took me less than 40 minutes. I got the ingredients prepared while the noodles were soaking and then it was just stir-fry from there. It was a tiny bit spicy for my weak pallet...but my fiance loved it. Who knew pad thai could be easy and healthy! Pros: Easy tasty and makes enough for 2- 3 Cons: Spicy
