Pad Thai Sauce

  • 2 tbsps soy sauce
  • 2 tbsps rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsps lime juice
  • 2 tbsps brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce


  1. Start by washing and drying all of your produce.

  3. Chop the peanuts and set them aside for topping.
  4. Cut the chicken into cubes. 
  5. Over your fire, bring a pot of water to a boil. 
  6. While waiting on the pot to boil, make the Pad Thai sauce by combining all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  7. Remove the pot from the heat as soon as it boils and submerge the noodles for about 9 minutes or until soft but not mushy.
  8. While the noodles cook, heat 2 tbsps of sesame oil over the fire in your cast iron skillet over medium heat.
  9. When the oil is hot, toss the chicken and onions in and season with salt.
  10. Saute until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165F and the onions are translucent and beginning to brown.
  11. Remove the chicken from the pan, spread the coals to lower the heat, and add two beaten eggs to the skillet. Stir constantly to scramble them.
  12. When the eggs are done, and the noodles are soft, use tongs to add the noodles to the skillet and pour the sauce over the top, stirring to coat.
  13. Serve topped with green onions, fresh cilantro, chopped peanuts, bean sprouts, and a slice of lime.
