Have you ever eaten something at a restaurant and then months (years) later you get this craving and can not find that one dish you fell in love with? That was me with this specific Thai dish. It’s the only Thai dish I have ever had or ordered and it’s simply amazing!
Thai Drunken Noodles is a quick meal that takes under 30 minutes from start to table. There were mixed reviews in my home on how it tasted. Personally, I was over the moon that I had FINALLY found my favorite Thai dish and I could easily make it at home now. My daughter, quickly scarfed down 2 bowls full and then asked me to warm her up leftovers for dinner that evening. My son was already biased as he bolted out the back door when I started cooking it, he is kind of touchy to smells lately. My youngest, well, he eats anything.
All of the ingredients are relatively low cost as well so this recipe won’t put a dent in your wallet. There are, however, quite a few ways to save even more money while shopping to make Thai Drunken Noodles.
The best way is with smartphone apps. Since there are rarely ever any coupons for produce or meats your best option to earn money back on the tomatoes, green peppers and more are with these apps. More specifically there are three apps that almost always have produce rebates, these apps are Checkout51, Ibotta and Shrink. Every now and then they will offer fresh meat rebates too, so that will maximize your savings even more. Although these apps will not reduce the amount due at the register they can easily serve as a form of “savings account”. If you bank all your earnings from these apps and cash them out around the holiday season you could possibly earn yourself a “no out of pocket Christmas”.
Overall we call this dish a huge WIN in this house and I truly hope you love it too!
