I tried one of these yesterday. It wasn't too bad. I followed the preparation instructions on the box and used the "boil-n-pour" method. I worked OK but not gear, some of the noodles didn't rehydrate all of the way. Next time I'm going to lay the noodles flat, pour the sauce and spices on top and then add the boiling water.May 29, 2011 at 8:12 am #1742430Laurie Ann MarchMember

"I found these at Giant Eagle too."
If you want to take these meals to the next level, add chunks of trout and simmer until almost done before adding the noodles. This method is especially good with the Thai Coconut curry.May 29, 2011 at 6:45 pm #1742600Eric BlumensaadtBPL Member

I assume this makes Pad Thai. I've done it on the trail and it's delicious, ESPECIALLY with retort pouch shrimp added. :)~May 29, 2011 at 6:57 pm #1742602Bob GrossBPL Member

How much does it weigh? I can't quite read the printing on the box.

Not sure. The box is in the trash. You'll have to check them out next time your out and about town.

If you stir the noodles while they rehydrate a couple times you will get the best results. The only real issue is they are not very filling (due the rice noodles) so beware on the calorie issue – although they take to having items added quite easily!Jun 7, 2011 at 12:43 pm #1746135Edward ZBPL Member
