One Pot Thai Turkey Noodle Bowl

One pot’s are the best kind of cooking when you don’t want take out.

It’s possible to convince yourself to cook something even if you don’t necessarily FEEL like it because…it’s a one pot!

Whatever you choose to serve this on (egg noodles, rice, mashed potatoes) may or may not count as a one pot depending on how strict you are with the theory of a one pot meal.
It also only takes about 20 minutes – whoo hoo!

what you need to do this

Large pot or deep frying pan


1lb ground turkey, pork or chicken
2 tbsp Olive Oil
2 tbsp garlic, sliced thin
1/2 cup of roasted peanuts, chopped rough
1 tbsp sambal oeleek
2 cups cooked broccoli, brussel sprouts, green beans
1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced
2 tbsp soya sauce
1 tsp fish sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
sesame seeds if you got em (to taste)
1/2 cup green onions, sliced thin
fresh cilantro, chopped (to taste)

Cooked egg noodles, mashed potatoes, rice
(whenever making any of these items ALWAYS make more – it will get used as well as save you cooking time)

oops forgot this in my ingredients pic (yep the good stuff- home made)

this is how we do it

HEAT oil in pan.
ADD ground meat and 1/4 cup water, breaking apart until water has evaporated and meat is browned.

Add peanuts and sambal oeleek, COOK 2 minutes.

Add red pepper and SAUTE until fragrant 3 minutes.

Add in garlic, cooked veg, soya sauce, fish sauce, COOK for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

FINAL TOUCH – add in green onions, sesame oil/sesame seeds and cilantro STIR to incorporate.

SERVE over side of choice.

This is REALLY good and can satisfy that takeout craving without sacrificing on taste.

These egg noodles appear to be giving us the finger (am I the only one seeing this lol?)
Please don’t take offense, I haven’t taken my food photography course – obviously!

Noooo I love YOU more!

    1. You take 6 of those long red skinny chili peppers, de-seed them, chop roughly and add to a small high power blender. Than add 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 limes juiced (just the juice) 2 tsp sugar, 1/2 sea salt. Do a quick blend and store in fridge 🙂 Really this should be mage in a mortal and pestle as that is what the oleek is an ode to. I guess you could call this sambal blender? lol Just don’t pulverize it a quick spin will do it – you want the chunks.

      Most people just buy it, those peppers are hard to come by.
