Easy pad kee mao (Thai-style drunken noodles)

Based on 15 ratings

"A really simple noodle stir-fry, these Thai-style drunken noodles (the origin of the name is highly debated) are a super easy, approachable foray into cooking Thai-ish food at home. This can be made vegetarian by swapping in strips of tofu, or you could use pork instead of chicken. The Thai basil really brings to flavors of the dish together, so use plenty of it! If you can’t find it, regular basil will do in a pinch, but I encourage you to seek out the subtly anise-flavored, purple-stemmed Thai basil."
