How to make it

  • Add vegetable oil to the pan over medium high; when a noodle sizzles in the oil you're ready to go. Add the noodles and 2/3 C of the sauce, as well as the shrimp paste.
  • Keep everything moving around the pan, and once the pan gets back up to temperature another 30 seconds to a minute and everything should loosen up.
  • Add in the garlic, chiles, shallot, dried shrimp, tofu, and shrimp or chicken; you may need to add some more oil. Now is the important time, KEEP EVERYTHING MOVING. You need to get the protein cooked, and make sure the noodles soften and loose that unpleasant chew; you may find that you need to add a little extra sauce or a little water.
  • When the noodles and protein are just about right add the bean sprouts and chives to wilt slightly.
  • Kill the heat, add the eggs, peanuts, and carrot and toss to combine.
  • Serve it up, you might want to include some dried red pepper, lime juice, fish sauce, or, if you're a bad person (and in this case I admit I am), some soy sauce on the side.
