{ Noodle: Rad Na Moo }

One of my favorite dishes, Rad Na (stir-fry noodle top with gravy) I had in Thailand with a few friends after school :)


{ 1 serving }
  • 1/4 lb of pork (could use chicken, tofu, beef, or seafood...)
  • 1/4 tsp of white pepper
  • 1/4 lb of fresh wide rice noodle
  • 3-4 oz. (about 100 grams) of chinese broccoli (Kana)
  • 2 tsp of chopped garlic
  • 3 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp of black soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp of white soy sauce (regular soy sauce would do)
  • 1 tbsp of oyster sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup of chicken/vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • 1 tsp of soy bean paste (optional)
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder (optional)
  • 1 cup of dissolved corn starch or tapioca starch (should be 1 tbsp of starch/1 cup of cold water)

{ garlic }

1. Cut/slice pork into a bite size. Marinate it with white soy sauce (2 tbsp), white pepper, garlic powder (optional), and oyster sauce ///I usually marinate the meat overnight but you can skip this step and just mix them together for a quick meal///


{ Chinese Broccoli (Kana) }

2. Slice Chinese broccoli as shown in the picure.


{ Wide Rice Noodle }

3. In a medium-large fry pan (set the stove to medium-high) add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Once the oil is hot add 1 teaspoon of chopped garlic, give a little stir to it then add the noodle. Add 1 tablespoon of black soy sauce and mix it well. Once the noodle is cooked place it in a dish/bowl.
4. In a medium-large fry pan or a wok (set the stove to high) add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Add 1 teaspoon of chopped garlic, give it a little stir then add mixed/marinated pork into the pan, stir it well.
5. Just right before the meat is thoroughly cooked add Chinese broccoli and give it a little stir, then add 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of black soy sauce, soy bean paste, and 1 teaspoon of white soy sauce, mix it well.
6. Add chicken/vegetable broth into the same pan and bring it to a boil, then slowly pour the dissolved corn/tapioca starch into a boiling broth just enough to make a gravy like out of it. Once the liquid is nice and thick turn off the stove and pour the final product on top of the noodle.

VoilĂ !
