Thai Sweet & Sour Fried Noodles – Mee Grob is a relative of the more famous Pad Thai dish. Mee Grob uses peanut oil and fine rice noodles to the max to produce a dish that is finger and lip licking good.  I have included Tofu in this recipe for the additional texture but don’t worry it is optional. Mee Grob is often a snack but also a starter. It can also be a lovely side dish to a main course.  Naturally if you remove the ground pork or chicken and hey presto, you have a lovely vegetarian recipe that I must admit is a lovely meal in its own right.

  • Heat the oil in a wok or pot over moderate heat until the surface shimmers.
  • Meanwhile, place the rice noodles in a plastic bag and crush to break them into small pieces.
  • Test the oil by dropping a few noodles in - they should puff up immediately.
  • Fry the noodles in small batches and remove from the oil as soon as they have puffed and turned light golden brown.
  • Place on paper towels to drain the oil.
  • Drain off all but about 1/4 cup (60 ml) of the oil and stir fry the ground pork or chicken for 2 to 3 minutes, until no longer pink.
  • Add the shrimp and stir fry for 1 minute. Add the tofu and stir fry for 1 minute.
  • Stir the vinegar, sugar, and fish sauce together in a bowl until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Add to the meat mixture and bring to a boil.
  • Add the beaten eggs and pepper, stirring until the eggs are set.
  • Add the noodles and the remaining ingredients and stir gently to combine. Serves immediately.
