Pad Thai Noodles


¾ cup unsalted peanuts, divided
8 ounces rice noodles
3 tablespoons ketchup
¼ cup fish sauce
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lime or lemon juice, divided
1 tablespoon white vinegar
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 shallots, finely chopped
2 cups bean sprouts
¾ cup chopped fresh cilantro


Place the peanuts in the bowl of the Cuisinart Spice Grinder. In very short bursts, pulse until the peanuts are roughly chopped. Reserve.
Bring a stockpot with 4 quarts of water to a boil. Add the rice noodles and turn off the heat. Let noodles sit about 5 minutes; strain and reserve.
In a small bowl, whisk the ketchup, fish sauce, sugar, 1½ tablespoons of the lime/lemon juice, vinegar and black pepper until completely combined. Reserve.
Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat; add oil. Once oil is hot and shimmering, add the eggs and scramble. Add the garlic and shallots; sauté until softened and fragrant. Add the cooked noodles; stir fry about 1 minute to mix with the egg and vegetables. Add the reserved sauce and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until well combined.
Add ½ cup of the peanuts and the bean sprouts and mix until combined. Turn off the heat and transfer to a large shallow bowl or platter. Add the remaining peanuts, lime/lemon juice and the cilantro.
Serve immediately.
