Pork Sticky Noodles (Rad Nah)


This is a great 'gloopy' noodle dish. The noodles are drenched in a sticky salty, slightly sweet and very very delicious sauce. Use pork with a little fat for extra flavour.

Ingredients for 2 People
300 gms Flat Rice Noodle
1 Teaspoon Dark Soy Sauce
1 Teaspoon Sugar
2 Tablespoons Oil
150 gms Pork
300 ml Water
2 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
2 Tablespoons Light Soy Sauce
1 Chicken Stock Cube
2 Tablespoons Cassava Starch (Use corn starch if you can't find it)
100 gms Broccoli

Preparation of Noodles
1. Soak the noodles in water for 20 minutes.
2. Put the oil, dark soy, sugar, and fry with noodle until the noodles are cooked.
3. Set aside on a plate.

Preparation For Soup
1. Boil the water and add the chicken stock cube, light soy sauce, and fish sauce to form a sauce.
2. Add the pork to the pan and cook for 5 minutes.
3. Add the cassava starch to 70 ml of cold water and add to the sauce pan and stir to thicken the sauce.
4. Chop and clean the broccoli and add to the sauce pan. Turn off the heat.


Condiments to Serve With
Flaked Chilli Powder
Vinegar with Chopped Chillies
Chopped or Pounded Peanuts

How to Serve
Place the noodles on a deep rimmed plate.
Spoon the sauce, broccoli and meat over the top.
The sauce should pool a under the noodles (which is why you need a deep rimmed plate).
Each guest can select which condiments to use on their dish.

great looking recipe! very great looking!

i'm new to thai food, asian food generally, so let me ask you this; what do you mean with "soak the noodles in water"? you mean hot water, boiling water, or room temperature? kinda like soaking gelatins in cold water first? or is it a cooking method?

i know, it's a pretty generic question, but a little help would be nice!

other than that, i think it's a doable recipe for me.

[Appon] Room temperature is fine.


Wow.. So, soak the noodles and fry them! I'm not sure I'm gonna do that well. But I'll give a try. Thanks for the help and your recipes look fabulous by the way..


So, I know I'm asking questions a bit too much, but this soaking method, is it just for rice noodle or a legitimate technique for the regular egg noodles as well?

[Appon] It's for dried noodles, all typs, just to soften them up!
