Pad Korat

I just discovered this Thai recipe recently, and it's definitely a keeper! It's a wonderful combination of spicy and sweet. Links are provided for the harder-to-find ingredients.


  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups sliced meat of your choice (I used pork)
  • 3 tablespoons sweet soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ground Thai chile peppers
  • 4 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 8 ounces of rice noodles
  • 2 cups fresh bean sprouts
  • 2 cups bok choy, cut into bite-sized pieces


Soak the rice noodles in warm water for about 15 minutes. While the noodles are soaking, heat vegetable oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add garlic, and saute until aromatic. Add sugar. Keep stirring until dissolved. Add ground chile, fish sauce, sweet soy sauce, and water. Bring to a high simmer, then add meat and cook until done. Drain the noodles and put them into the wok. Stir-fry until the noodles absorb most of the sauce. Add the vegetables and stir-fry another few minutes or until your vegetables are cooked but still a bit crunchy. Enjoy!
