Peanut Pad Thai

After a bit of experimenting, my Mom and I came up with the perfect Peanut Pad Thai recipe. It has been my family's favorite dish since we first made it. It's actually easy to make and is extremely delicious.

Peanut Sauce 

1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon and 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon and 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup and 2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/4 cup and 2 teaspoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons and 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
2 tablespoons and 1-1/4 teaspoons minced garlic 
2 tablespoon Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (optional) 
2 tablespoons Sanbal Oelek Ground Fresh Chili Sauce (optional)

I found this sauce recipe (originally meant for Asian Coleslaw) at this website:
I changed the recipe a little by adding the Sriracha sauce and the ground fresh chili. 

After the Peanut Sauce....

1) Finely chop 2 or 3 cups of red or green cabbage 
2) Finely chop 1 or 2 tablespoons of cilantro 
3) Fry 2 eggs in a pan with some of the fresh chili sauce 
4) Stir fry shrimp or beef 
5) Cook rice noodles (bring water to a boil, let noodles sit in hot water until soft, drain and rinse noodles with cold water immediately)
6) Add all the ingredients together in a pan or bowl and mix together. I typically don't use all of the sauce. 
7) Sprinkle chopped peanuts and cilantro on the top and enjoy.

In the pictures below, I made a vegetarian pad thai which is just as delicious!
