pad see ew ...the right way!
i was hopping about the interwebs as i do... and happened across a recipe for pad see ew. the street vendor way. legit. watch the video. youll want to go to thailand toot-sweet and eat all of the street foods you can find. basically, here are the steps:
fatty fat fat chinese sausage. i think the weird spotty bits might be some ginger i threw in there as an after thought. once the sausage chunks are all shiny and slightly crispy, set them aside.
here is the absolute key. if you have an electric wok [and not a super awesome high heat gas powered open stove thing like the street vendors], crank that puppy ALL THE WAY TO 11. seriously. add some canola oil and tilt the pan to let the oil possibly hit remnants of fried goodness and spurt at you all over your clean shirt.
once the oil is shimmering, add everything including half the sauce into the pan. toss to mix, and then let it sit until you hear crackling.
