Pork Marinade

  • 3 center cut pork loins, thinly sliced (or whatever protein you prefer thinly sliced)
  • 23 tbsp oyster sauce



  • 2 tbsp cooking oil of choice
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups pork broth (or chicken)
  • 1 bunch of fresh chinese broccoli, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup, or more to taste, yellow bean sauce
  • 2 tbsp. Thai mushroom soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp, or more to taste, oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp, or more to taste, sugar
  • Thai Sriracha (optional)


  1. Mix pork and oyster sauce in a bowl, and marinate it at least 20 minutes to overnight in the fridge.
  2. Soak the rice noodles for at least 30 minutes in cold water.
  3. Warm up a wok or pan and add cooking oil.
  4. Add the noodles, and black soy sauce and stir-fry until noodles become soft. (The dark soy sauce is just to give some color and a little flavor to the noodles, so you don’t need too much of it.)
  5. Set noodles aside.
  6. Add oil to the same wok or pan and warm it.
  7. Add garlic and cook a few minutes until it smells amazing.
  8. Add in pork, and stir-fry until halfway cooked.
  9. Add the broth, and bring to a gentle boil. 
  10. Add in chinese broccoli, the sauces and sugar to taste. Cook over a gentle boil until chinese broccoli is tender but still crisp, just a few minutes.
  11. Keeping the gravy at a gentle boil, mix water and corn starch in a bowl, and add it to the wok until the mixture is thickened to your likening. 
  12. To plate it, first add a serving of noodles to a plate, and then ladle on the Lad Na gravy.
  13. Feel free to add Thai sriracha  to your delight if you want to eat it Sukhothai style like us!
  14. Enjoy!
