This quick and tasty beef pad Thai differs slightly from the classic shrimp or chicken pad Thai. This cast iron pan recipe, with beef and broccoli, carrots, beansprouts, and green onions give this version an added depth of flavor which distinguishes it from the more common versions.

Of course, that's not to say it's not authentic. Many street food vendors in Bangkok offer pad Thai beef as an option alongside shrimp or chicken pad Thai noodles. As with most classic dishes, it's the little twists we put on them that make them the most interesting.

Once you've mastered this easy pad Thai recipe, you can try out your own variations. We've added a couple of suggestions at the bottom of the page.
