Beef Pad Thai

I’m not an expert on Thai food but I really liked this Beef Pad Thai! The flavor was amazing and it was a nice light pasta dish.

My kids all inhaled this dish as well. It wasn’t a dish that they reached for when they had their choice of leftovers but they had no complaints eating it the night I made it. I was ok with that since the leftovers all came my way!

Substitutions/Additions made by Cooking After Class for Beef Pad Thai:

  • eliminated oil
  • substituted venison for ground beef…used 1 pound instead of 3/4 pound
  • used an entire bag of steam-in-the-bag sugar snap peas
  • used an entire package of matchstick carrots
  • added 8 oz of sliced white mushrooms
  • added about 3/4 cup pad thai sauce instead of 1/2 cup because of all of the extra veggies
