      I did search and find some posts. I guess what I meant what did someone have a recipe they found and liked. I'm going to try this one.

        Well that looks delicious! Thanks for the link, I love those fat rice noodles, this looks not to difficult or ingredient heavy, something one could put together fairly quickly.

        Don't worry alexa, I can't find anything using the search function and I've been on this board almost 4years. I have had the darndest time directing people to my own recipes. I'm sure it's just user dysfunction.

    2. Here's a quick primer and recipe from Pim over at Chezpim:

      When I make it at home, I use the wide noodles and then use my traditional homemade pad thai sauce (palm sugar, water , tamarind paste, fish sauce, etc., then cooked and reduced to sauce/syrup consistancy in a big batch) and just cut back on it and up the soy sauce amount when stir frying.

      While not authentic, it matches my favorite local Thai places Pad See Ew within a few % points.

      If you have access to an asian market, finding the correct ingredients and making an excellent redition should not be difficult.

        Thanks! I can't wait to try it. It's one of my Favorite Thai dishes.

          That is a good recipe. One small trick I use, as well, is to sprinkle a little sugar on the broccoli. When you stir fry it, the sugar caramelizes and adds some smokiness to the dish.

            great tip on the sugar! would brown sugar also work, maybe provide a different flavor even?

              Any way to aid the broccoli in charring would work. Brown sugar might be interesting -- with the added molasses I wonder if the flavor would be a little smokier.
