Thai-Style Beef with Noodles

There is nothing better than a bowl full of Thai style beef with noodles on a wintery, cold night. We love Thai food and these Thai style beef noodles are our favorite, quick weeknight meal, especially when we get bored with fried rice. My daughter would be so happy to have noodles every night, if possible 🙂

Thai-Style Beef with Noodles

If you love Thai flavors, I am pretty sure this recipe is going to be a new favorite in your home too.

When I have started cooking Thai at home, I found it so tricky to get the balance of spiciness, saltiness, sourness and sweetness just right. I always ended up with a salty dish. I love how David Thompson, compares mastering the balance of Thai flavors to playing chess.

In time, after watching Duncan’s Thai Kitchen episodes and other Thai cooks, I have discovered that they constantly taste and adjust as they cook. The secret in balancing Thai flavors perfectly is in tasting your dish frequently, adding small quantities of fish sauce, lime juice, palm sugar etc and pay close attention to how the flavors change as you add each ingredient.
