Thai noodle sauce?

I want to make a new thai noodle dish and am not sure if anyone has any suggestions about a good recipe/sauce. I make a lot of pad thai which I absolutely love but would like to try something new with my rice noodles (I bought the really thin type). Maybe something I could incorporate shrimp and veggies with?

      2 tsp regular soy sauce
      3 tbs mushroom flavored soy sauce (also referred to as light soy sauce)
      2 tsp sugar (I prefer brown, but white is fine)
      4 cloves garlic, minced
      ½ block tofu, cubed (or the protein of your choice)
      1 to 2 eggs, lightly beaten (depending on how much you like eggs)
      1 to 2 cups broccoli florets (or one bunch washed and well-dried kale or Chinese broccoli)
      1 to 1 1/2 pound fresh, wide rice noodles (also called chow fun), strands separated (or about 8 oz dried wide rice sticks, soaked in boiling water until semi-soft, drained well and lightly oiled to prevent sticking*)

      The sauce is the soy(both kinds ) and the sugar Make sure you let it sit for 10 mins then stir right before you put it on.

      Peanut oil in the wok, do veggies to just less than done, then meat (I like top round beef in this recipie, my fav thai place does an amazing pork) Add the garlic towards the end of the meat then add the egg, when th egg is just set add the veggies and noodles. Add the sauce, start with half then add to taste.

      I like adding chili garlic paste towards the end to heat it up.

      This is good with nuac mam with rice vinegar, sugar and chiles and onions as a dipping sauce. saw it on the web somwhere, tried it, liked it.

        mushroom soy sauce is the same as light soy sauce?

        1. re: alkapal

          It certainly is not.

          ETA: Ah, I see the wallyz clarified below.

    2. No, there are two kinds.

      Mushroom soy sauce:

      This is what my fave resto uses, and what i use now. I get it at an Asian market in Lynnwood WA

        ok, it was just that your recipe stated "3 tbs mushroom flavored soy sauce (also referred to as light soy sauce)" i needed to ask if they were the same thing. thanks.
