Beef Pad See Ew with Birdseye Chilis

Beef Pad See Ew

with Birdseye Chilis

Pad See Ew (literally: “stir-fried soy sauce”) is a popular Thai and Lao noodle dish. It typically uses Chinese broccoli, a dark leafy green vegetable that has a stronger and slightly more bitter flavor than the common broccoli. Combined with slightly sweet mirin and spicy birdseye chilis, this quick and flavorful dish is a winner.
