Pad see ew is a favorite of CHOW Operations Manager Meredith Arthur, so we decided to give her a version to use up her leftover Thanksgiving turkey (or any other tasty meat, from chicken to beef to pork). Filling and easy to make, this dish is sure to become a weeknight favorite.
What to buy: We used a combination of dark and light soy sauce for a more complex flavor. If you’re having a hard time finding either, you can use only one, but keep in mind that light soy is saltier than dark so you’ll need to adjust your seasoning accordingly.

Beverage pairing: Black Butte Porter, Oregon. The dark and light soy sauces combined with the sugar suggest a pairing with something brown and toasty that has a hint of caramel sweetness. Add a slight bitter note to work with the broccoli rabe and the garlic, and nothing matches that description better than a well-made dark beer. This porter from Deschutes Brewery in Oregon is rightly regarded as one of America’s best beers. Served cold in a glass, it will make a thirst-quenching companion to the noodles.
