Triple Crown Pad Thai with Satay-Marinated Steak, Chicken, & Shrimp

Triple Crown Pad Thai with Satay-Marinated Steak, Chicken, & Shrimp
Sorry,  I'm a little late again. Another day... another set of tests. I'm really starting to grow weary of the visits to the doctor. I don't know how much longer I can make it, it's just mentally exhausting. So, once again, I'm going to keep this short + sweet because it's bedtime for me, my friends. About the recipe, we're big Thai food lovers, more specifically Pad Thai. And who knew, it's really easy to make. I decided to make it extra manly and add steak, chicken, and shrimp that have all been marinated satay spiced paste mixture. I really love all the flavors that come together her. And always garnish with fresh minced cilantro, chopped roasted peanuts, and a drizzle of Sriracha!! Enjoy :)
Without the peanuts... it's oh-so-crucial.
For the Satay-Marinated Steak, Chicken, & Shrimp
½lb Steak, Chicken, & Shrimp Each (We used 1 Large Filet, 4 Chicken Thighs, & 12 Shrimp)
2T Ground Turmeric
½t Ground White Pepper
1 Garlic Clove, Minced
1t Sugar
1t Ground Coriander & Yellow Curry Powder
¼C Coconut Cream

For the Triple Crown Pad Thai:
16oz Wide, Flat Rice Noodles (I bought the noodles that were pre-cooked)
4T Brown Sugar
4T Fresh Lime Juice (I also zested 2 limes for extra flavor, this is optional)
5T Soy Sauce
1T Fish Sauce
1T Honey
¼t Sriracha
1 Bunch of Green onions, Roughly Chopped (we used about 6 green onions)
2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
1t Fresh Ginger, Minced
4 Large Eggs, Beaten
½-1C Fresh Cilantro, Finely Chopped
½C Roasted Peanuts, Finely Chopped
Prepared Satay-Marinated Steak, Chicken, & Shrimp (cooked)
Thai Peanut Sauce, For Drizzling

Directions:
1. For the Satay-Marinated Steak, Chicken, & Shrimp: Mix together the turmeric, white pepper, garlic, sugar, ground cumin, yellow curry powder, and coconut cream until thoroughly combined and mixed well. Separate the marinade evenly into three plastic bags and add one protein to each bag (you should have one steak bag, one chicken bag, and one shrimp bag). Toss the coat the proteins in the marinade. Let the proteins marinate for 30 minutes to an hour before grilling. Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat and cook the meet according to the temperature that you like. The shrimp only requires a couple minutes, the chicken needs to be cooked until there is no pink color in the center, and we like our steak seared to medium-rare (but it is all up to you).
2. In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, limejuice and zest, soy sauce, fish sauce, honey and Sriracha.
3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.
4. Add scallion whites and garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Add eggs and cook, scraping skillet with a spatula until eggs are almost set (about 30 seconds). Transfer the eggs to a plate. Add noodles, green onions, and sauce to skillet. Cook, tossing constantly, until noodles are soft (about 1 minute). Add egg mixture and toss to coat, breaking eggs up gently.
5. Garnish the dish with the satay-marinated steak, chicken, and shrimp along with cilantro, roasted peanuts, and a drizzle of Sriracha.

  1. So sorry to hear your health is not doing so good. I'm in the same boat, I work 10 houos, then just come home to collapse with exhaustion, and go back to the doctors for more tests, just to hear that they really can't figure out what's wrong. I'm going in for a transfusion this week, hopefully that will help some so I can get. back to living. I used to get so creative with my cooking because I love to cook, it helps me to relax, but then I just couldn't do it everyday, so then I would just cook on the weekends, then I would just cook when I felt like I could. Luckily for me my hubby loves to cook as well so I don't have to. I have a list of all your great recipes that I want to try when I'm more able to, and I think this will move to the top, it seems easy enough but still so delish. I pray you'll get better soon, don't let it get you down mentally, you have to fight that. Miss B
