“I have always loved Pad Thai, so I decided to figure out how to make it. My recipe doesn't use tamarind juice or shrimp, but it does taste delicious! Or so my wife says... If you do want a more authentic Pad Thai, reduce the chicken to a 1/2 lb. and add a 1/2 lb. of shrimp to the recipe. Be sure not to marinate the shrimp, and to add at the same time as the eggs. Also, replace the rice vinegar with tamarind juice. Enjoy!”
