  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar or palm sugar
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil, for stir frying
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 - 2 red chilies, seeds removed and minced
  • 1 lb large shrimp, cleaned (shells removed and deveined)
  • 3 tablespoons chicken stock

  • 2 cups bean sprouts
  • ½ cup roasted peanuts, roughly ground, for garnish
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped, for garnish
  • ¼ cup red pepper flakes, for garnish
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and then remove from heat.
  2. Lower in rice noodles and soak them for 15 minutes, or until soft enough to eat.
  3. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
  4. Mix together the taramind paste, fish sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, and brown sugar, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Set aside.
  5. Heat your wok over medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons oil.
  6. Add the garlic and chilies and stir-fry 1 minute.
  7. Add the shrimp and stir-fry 2 minutes more, or until shrimp are pink and plump.
  8. If the wok becomes dry, add a little chicken stock, 1 tablespoon at a time to keep everything frying evenly.
  9. Push the ingredients to one side, and add 1 more tablespoon of the oil to the center of the wok.
  10. Crack the eggs into the open space of the wok and quickly stir-fry until scrambled.
  11. Mix in the drained noodles and the tamarind sauce.
  12. Use tongs to stir-fry the noodles for 3 minutes. If the noodles are sticking to the wok, add a little more oil.
  13. Add the bean sprouts, stir-fry for about a minute.
  14. Remove wok from heat and taste the noodles, adding more fish sauce until desired flavor is reached, usually another tablespoon or so.
  15. Top with ground peanuts, and garnish with pepper flakes, cilantro and lime wedges.
  16. Serve at once and enjoy!
