Pad Kee Mao (Drunken Noodles) with Beef

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Thai”.

Thus, why I had issue with this theme was trying to come up with something I have never attempted before. Then I remembered this small Thai place near my old work that made killer Pad Kee Mao. This dish also gave me a chance to try out my new wok that I have been meaning to break in.

I remember my mom ordering this at my first Thai restaurant when I was about 8 and feel in love then and never stopped. Because of this, I have never tried making it because I thought it was overly complicated and I was very wrong. That being said, this dish had a decent amount heat but it could have used more. The only reason I did not make it hotter is out of respect for a friend who was over when I made this that can not take heat like a few of us. Given that, the left overs, I cheated and added a thing of chili paste that I got from a Thai restaurant that I went to a week prior.
