Glass Noodles With Pork

This dish turned out okay – nice, tasty, but nothing particularly special. The ingredients were:

  • Ground pork, 1 lb
  • Cellophane noodles, 4 oz
  • Cabbage, sliced, 1-2 cups
  • Scallions, chopped into 1-inch lengths, 1-2 cups
  • Eggs, 4
  • Garlic, 6 cloves
  • Fish sauce, 6 tablespoons
  • Sugar, 4 tablespoons
  • Maggi seasoning, 2 tablespoons
  • Oil

The ingredients.

The first step is simple: soak the noodles in warm water for about 10 minutes.


Warm water and noodles.

After a while, you’ll see that they’ve grown, as if by magic!


Just the noodles.

Next, fry the pork in the oil. Then add the eggs and garlic.


Frying, frying.

Once that’s more-or-less cooked, add in everything else.


The onions and cabbage, prepared in advance.


The finished product.

And voila! Enjoy.

Square Thai Omelets

These were yummy, but I couldn’t get them to be square – they ended up as more of a scramble. Sorry. The ingredients are:

  • Pork, 4 oz, ground
  • Shrimp, 4 oz, ground
  • Eggs, 6, beaten
  • Garlic, 1 clove, minced
  • Tomato, 1, chopped
  • Onion, 1, chopped
  • Carrots, 1/8 cup, chopped
  • Sugar peas, 2 tablespoons
  • Fish sauce, 2 tablespoons
  • Maggi seasoning, 1 tablespoon
  • Sugar, 2 tablespoons
  • White pepper, 1/4 teaspoon
  • Oil, 3 tablespoons

The ingredients.

The first step was preparing a few of the ingredients. I could but the pork ground, but I had to mince the shrimp myself. A knife was a relatively crude tool, but it worked well enough.


Mincing meat.

I sliced the peas along with the other veggies, and I liked it that way. But you do you.


Slicing veggies.

The next step starts with frying the garlic in a tablespoon of the oil.

Then add the meat.

Then add the sugar, pepper, fish sauce, and Maggi seasoning.


More stuff in a pan.

Then add the veggies, and cook until your desired level of tenderness.


Still more stuff in a pan.

The rest is simple. In another pan, you’ll make four omelets. Add oil and about a quarter of the eggs.

Then add some of the goodness from the other pan.

You can try to make a square omelet, like I did, but you may end up with a scramble, like I did. Regardless, it’s good. Repeat until you’ve made everything, and enjoy.


Good stuff.

Pork Omelet

I hate to say it, but these Pork Omelets (courtesy, again, of the Thai cookbook I’m working through) were just okay. The ingredients:

  • Ground pork (1 pound)
  • Eggs (4, scrambled)
  • Green onions/scallions (1/2 cup, chopped)
  • Fish sauce (4 tablespoons)
  • Maggi seasoning (2 teaspoons)
  • Oil (any kind; I used peanut; a cup or so)

The ingredients.

First, scramble the eggs, like so:


Scramble those eggs.

Then add some of the other stuff – the Maggi seasoning, fish sauce, and scallions – and mix them in.


Mixing ingredients.

Then mix in the ground pork. You’ll find that the pork/egg ratio is heavily skewed towards pork. Don’t worry – that’s how they’re supposed to be.


Mixing ingredients.

Next, heat some of the oil in a pan, and when it’s hot, add in some of the pork mixture. How much is up to you, and depends on the size of the pan, how big you want the omelets to be, the circumference of the moon, and other factors.

Flip when appropriate and cook until it looks done to you. When it’s done it should look something like this:


The finished product

Make as many as need be. You’ll find that they’re rather salty. I enjoy salt, so that wasn’t a problem for me; I just found the flavors uninspiring overall. But hopefully you’ll enjoy!

Thai Pork Omelet

This was an okay dish – nothing particularly earth-shattering, but definitely a different kind of omelet, and easy to make. The ingredients were:

  • pork, minced/ground, 1 pound
  • fish sauce, 4 tablespoons
  • eggs, 4
  • scallions, chopped, 1/2 cup
  • Maggi seasoning, 2 teaspoons

The ingredients.

The first step is scrambling the eggs, like so:


Like so.

Then, add everything else in – all the other ingredients:


Everything else.


Yes, even the pork.

Then, spoon portions into a pan with hot oil, and cook. Like any other omelet, this may be a test of your flipping skills.


Bigger & thicker omelets take longer to cook.

And then, you’re done. Enjoy! This dish will make several omelets.


The omelet in question.

Crab Fried Rice

Oh my goodness, this was good. The ingredients:

  • Crab meat, 1-2 cups
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • Maggi seasoning, 2 tablespoons
  • Fish sauce, 3/8 cup
  • Sugar, 2 tablespoons
  • 1 diced scallion
  • 1-2 sliced tomatoes
  • 1 sliced cucumber, peeled
  • 5 thai chilies, diced (this is hot. You may prefer fewer)
  • cilantro leaves to taste
  • lemon juice to taste

The ingredients.

Your first step really should be to start the rice, since it can take a while. I use a rice cooker, but you do you.


I love my rice cooker.

You may also want to prepare a few other ingredients.


The eggs.


The crab. You may want to sort through this just to make sure there’s no shell in it.

I used a wok, because its size was so well-suited to the volume of the dish, but you don’t have to. In any case, heat some oil in the wok and stir-fry the crab, garlic, and eggs together until the eggs have been cooked.


Apply heat.

Next, add a few other things: the cooked rice, the Maggi seasoning, the fish sauce, and the sugar. Mix it all together and cook until everything is hot.


Add the rice.


And then a few other things.

Next, add the lemon juice (to taste) and the thai chili peppers (to taste).


Thai chilies can be hot.


But tasty, though.

The rest of the ingredients don’t need to cook thoroughly – in fact having them relatively uncooked (even cold) can be kind of nice. Especially if you added a lot of chili heat, as I did.


Scallions are sometimes referred to as green onions.

So go ahead and add the scallions, tomatoes, cucumbers, and cilantro.


Adding things, adding things.


Adding things, adding things.


I want to make this again now.

Then mix it together, and enjoy!

Thai Pepper Steak

This meal is easy to make, and delicious. So, so good! The ingredients are:

  • Beef (2-3 lbs, sliced)
  • Green bell pepper (1, sliced)
  • Red bell pepper (1, sliced)
  • Onion (1, sliced)
  • Garlic (8-9 cloves, minced)
  • Fish sauce (6 tablespoons)
  • Maggi seasoning (2 tablespoons)
  • Sesame Oil (2 tablespoons)
  • Sugar (4 tablespoons)
  • Oil (e.g. coconut)

And for the marinade:

  • Fish sauce (3 teaspoons)
  • Corn starch or corn flour (2 tablespoons)
  • White pepper (ground; 1 tsp)

The ingredients.

The first step is to make the marinade. This is what it ends up looking like:


The marinade.

Yup, kinds dry and clumpy. But this is what you’ll bathe your sliced beef in for about ten minutes, for whatever it’s worth. Oh, and that sliced beef? This is how I sliced mine, but you do you:


The sliced beef.

Meanwhile, you can slice up the rest of your stuff: the green pepper, red pepper, and onion:


The sliced onions and peppers.

Then melt some oil in your pan (I used coconut oil, but that’s not required).


Melt some oil in the pan.

Put the sliced beef in the pan and cook on medium-high heat until the beef is nearly completely cooked through.


Add the beef.

Then add the onion/pepper/pepper mixture you already sliced, and mince the garlic into it as well. Cover and cook on low or medium heat until everything is soft.


And the veggies.

Meanwhile, you might as well combine the rest of your ingredients: the sugar, fish sauce, maggi seasoning, sesame oil. This is what that looks like: appetizing, right? Pour this into the pan once everything is softened.


And the rest.

Then mix it all together and you’re done. I ate mine over rice – it’s delicious!


And you’re done!
