Pad Thai Pho Noodles

My fans have been asking for this recipe from day one of blogging. So here is everyone's favourite recipe. The most important thing here is to cook in high heat, that is, between medium and maximun heat. When purchasing pho noodles, make sure the label of the noodle package reads "Rice Sticks" and "Pho". Use pho noodles to make Lao Pho - beef noodle soup.

Stir Fry Recipe: Pad Thai Pho Noodles
1 handful of rice stick pho noodles soaked in luke warm water for 2 to 3 hours.
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon garlic
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon hot chili sauce
3 cups chopped baby bok choy, snow peas, sweet red peppers

Ingredients for Egg Strips:
1 egg
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon garlic

To make fried egg strips, in a small bowl mix egg and soy sauce. In a wok of high heat, add oil and garlic. Stir for 30 seconds and pour egg mixture into wok. Cook evenly and flip the egg in half and flip again to cook other side. Remove from wok. Once cooled, sliced into strips. Egg strips are also used in the Fried Rice recipe.

To make pad Thai noodles, drain the water from the soaked noodles. In a wok of high heat, add oil and garlic. Add noodles and soy sauce, oyster sauce and chili sauce. Stir quickly. Add chopped vegetables and stir quickly. If the noodles look dry and not yet cooked add ½ cup of water and mix again for another minute. Pour noodles into serving dish and top with fried egg strips. Pad Thai Noodles should not take more than 5 minutes to cook. Serve immediately.
