 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 c Thai fish sauce
  • 1/4 c White vinegar; plus:
  • 2 tb White vinegar
  • 4 tb Sugar (less if desired)
  • 1 ts Paprika
  • 8 oz Thai rice noodles
  • -- (about 1/4" thick)
  • 8 oz Tofu
  • 2 tb Dried shrimp (optional)
  • 3 tb Oil
  • 2 Garlic cloves (or more)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3/4 lb Bean sprouts
  • 3 Green onions
  • - sliced on the diagonal,
  • - including white part
  • 3/4 c Ground peanuts
  • 1 tb Roasted red chili peppers *


* [Take some dried red chili peppers and cook them in an ungreased wok over
low stirring constantly until they start to brown. Grind in a coffee
grinder or spice mill.]

Instructions: Combine first four ingredients and let sit
until sugar dissolves. Soak rice noodles/sticks in warm water until they
are soft but don't disintegrate when pressed, about 40 minutes. Drain.
Drain tofu by wrapping it in a clean towel and pressing with a large can of
tomatoes, about 30 minutes. Cut into 1/4 inch cubes. Rinse dried shrimp in
water and drain.

Put oil in wok, heat to medium, put in crushed garlic. Swirl around for
about a minute. Add noodles and mix around for a minute or two.

Add the tofu and shrimp then immediately add the liquid. Keep stirring
until the liquid has all been absorbed into the noodles, about a couple of

Lower heat to low or medium-low. Push some of the stuff aside at one end
of wok, and break an egg in. Immediately cover with noodles. Do the same at
the other end of wok. Let the eggs cook *undisturbed* until the yolks are
practically cooked, about three minutes. (*Carefully* peak if unsure.) Slip
a slotted spoon under each egg in turn, and bring upward, through the
noodles, shaking as you go. The idea is to break up the cooked egg into
the rest of the mixture into tiny bits.

Mix in sprouts and green onions. Let cook for another two minutes. Turn
off heat. Add crushed peanuts and enough roasted red chilies to your
desired hotness.
