Stir fry noodle ( khmer Mee Char)

Stir fry noodle ( khmer Mee Char)

This is khmer char mee, it is easy to make, instead of Pad Thai khmer Mee Char is a bit difference we serve with tuk trey (sweet fish sauce and garnish with crush peanut). I twist the recipe a bit so the noodle is softer and not so dry.

For the noodle you need

1 pg of dried noodle soak in warm water for at least 30 minutes then drain and set aside.
For meat you need sliced chicken, pork, beef, fried egg or shrimp is best.
2 T of minced garlic
3 to 4 T of oil for stir fry
2 cups of bean sprouts
1/2 cup of chives chopped
2 green onions chopped

Lime juice
Chili sauce
Crush peanut for garnish
Sweet fish sauce to add to the noodle later if needed.

Stir fry sauce

In a small bowl mix everything together and set aside
3 T of fish sauce
3 T of soy sauce
2 T of brown sugar or palm sugar
2 T of thick soy sauce
1 T of tamarind concentrate

In a none stick fry pan heat oil until hot add minced garlic stir fry until brown then add meat cook until the meat is done
Now add the noodle stir fry until tender add sauce to the noodle you might need to add a bit of water if the noodle is not soft enough.
When the noodle is almost done add bean sprouts, green onions, and chives stir fry until everything is hot then turn the heat off.

When ready to serve garnish with lime juice, chili sauce, crush peanut and if needed you can add sweet fish sauce to it.

for the sweet fish sauce you need
3 T of fish sauce
2 T of sugar
2 T of lime juice or vinegar
3 T of water
1 clove of minced garlic
This sauce you can adjust the flavor to your taste. 

Note: this recipe is good to eat by itself but if you want to add sweet fish sauce you need to reduce 1 T of fish sauce, 1 T of soy sauce and 1 T of brown sugar because sweet fish sauce has the sweetness and salty on its own.
