She didn't make it quite clear that you would (of course) mix up the sauce at home as part of your prep. I'd cut up the carrot and garlic in advance, too. Yeah, so this isn't exactly a minimalist's backcountry meal, but it looks like you could feed four people with that recipe, so the packing-in could be shared. I wouldn't pack bean sprouts, though, unless I was making this the first night out. They get funky in a hurry when they're not refridgerated. I think some shredded savoy cabbage might work well as a substitute.
i made a similar recipe in the backcountry. and everytrhing repackaged and mixed ahead of time saves weight and time. i didnt use peanuts, rather peanut butter, and it was great! taking it again this coming week
i can't believe that every time i want to watch a video here i have to watch a commercial for whiskey first!!!!
seems like mung beans noodles would be faster and easier to cook (also weight less) even if that is less traditional.
Who the hell is hauling in bottles of vinegar and soy sauce and fresh vegetables and fruit into the backcountry? I know I'm not. I like food more than most people, and this ain't worth the effort.
How much soy sauce is in this recipe??
Looks tasty. How many containers and pots was that? I'll try it on a weekend trip. I think I'd strain the noodles into a fire pit then have a fire after dinner to burn off the food smell.
I tried this recipe and thought it was great! To avoid the measuring cups and bottles I used a mini nalgene to carry the pre-mixed sauce which saved a lot of space and weight.
Backcountry recipe? How far away is your car??? There is no way all this stuff would be hiked into the backcountry! I loved all the bottles too! This is not a recipe I'd pack up and lug with me along any trail!!!
it may be a lot of stuff to have, but i see where on a three day two night trip that will work, way better than MRE's my friends bring. good stuff keep making thease videos.
where's the Taiwanese porter to pack all the pots, pans, and ingredients?
Please send recipe for Pad Thai. It looks delicious. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Cool Show. If it was on Discovery channel I would watch it. My only complaint is that there isn't more episodes. Thanks for some good ideas.
i think i'd mix the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, chili, and lime in a small nalgene for convenience.
That look's incredible! I can't wait to try it myself.. Thanks for the recipe :)
that seems like a ridiculious amount of ingredients to have in the backcountry. No?
i would love that recipe i always did love stirfrys
I love these trail chef videos keep making them also would like to gear test on liquid gas stoves like dragonfly vs bruton vs xkg and others liquid stoves thanks
Nitpick: Pronounced PUDD thai, not PADD.
