Get the Recipe
When SE editor Erin asked me why there had never been a pad Thai in our Dinner Tonight series, I didn't have a straight answer. I just assumed that sometime over the past five years either Blake or I had made one.
Looking to correct this egregious mistake, I searched all over for a quick recipe, but kept running head first into walls. Though quick to prepare, pad Thai recipes can often feature over 20 ingredients—many of which are hard to track down. I tried a succession of shortcut recipes, but I had no less than three fail to live up to my pad Thai standards.
