Pad Thai – REVENGE

We had revenge on pad thai this past weekend. I didn’t take as many pictures this time
because we had so many good ones last time.
Also because once you get going with this dish in the wok, you need to be focused and keep the
ingredients coming. If you are serious
about trying pad thai, check out chez pim and read her page on it. It may seem long, but you need to read
through it to get the idea of how to make this dish really great.

Another note about pad thai sauce. If you have never cooked with these
ingredients, you may get grossed out. The
design team tried this dish the same night as I did and were gagging the whole
time they made the pad thai sauce. Fish
sauce is a pretty nasty substance and so is tamarind. They magically come together to form
amazingness, how that happens is something I shall never understand.

One reason we were more successful this time is the pressing
of the tofu.

And because we actually found tamarind.

This is what we like to call “super happy awesome sauce.” we used it in place of the chili powder in
chez pim’s recipe.

As you can see the tofu browned up nice this time.

Mmmm delicious.

Even the egg rolls look better!

She’s classy, that’s why
I love her.

Best. Lunch. EVER!
