Spicy Drunken Noodles

Spicy Drunken Noodles

I've never been able to find out exactly how this dish got its name, which in Thai is kwiteeo pat kee mao. Unlike Chinese 'drunken' recipes that I have known, there's no alcohol used in this dish, ever. The basic ingredients are similar to those used in stir-fried meats with garlic and holy basil, called pat krapao in Thai. It does appear that the name actually refers to the diner, rather than the dish.

Stir-Fried Noodles with Soy Sauce

Stir-Fried Noodles with Soy Sauce

In Thai, this dish is simply called kwit-teeo pat see-eew, or rice noodles stir-fried with soy sauce. You'll note it uses all three kinds of soy sauce commonly used in Thai kitchens. I think this dish goes best with pork, but you'll also easily find it on the street with chicken. Seafood is less common due to the over-powering tastes of the sauces.
