  • 2 tbsp minced cilantro stems
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tsp white pepper powder
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced

Noodle Bowl Toppings

  • 2 cups of bean sprouts
  • 4 green onions, chopped into 1/4 in. pieces
  • Handful of cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup crushed peanuts
  • Thai chili powder, to taste (It’s super powerful, so be careful!)
  • 2 tsp or to taste per bowl of Dark Thai soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. fried garlic or so for each bowl


  1. Make the noodles according to package instructions.
  2. Make super quick meatballs by combining the ground turkey, cilantro stems, white pepper, garlic and oyster sauce.
  3. Roll into balls, and while the water for the noodles is boiling, plop the meatballs into the boiling water.
  4. It only takes a few minutes to cook them, and they should rise to the surface when cooked.
  5. Drain the noodles and meatballs into a colander.
  6. Add noodles and meatballs to each bowl along with all toppings to taste and preference.
  7. Enjoy!


In Thailand they typically have pork balls, and pork tenderloin in their Kuay Tiaw Haeng. The pork tenderloin is cut into bite-size pieces and cooked in the same boiling water as the noodles. So feel free to substitute the meatballs for that or the pork tenderloin for whatever meat you have in your fridge that you want to use up like rotisserie chicken, etc.
