Giant Noodle Rolls (Guay-Tieow Lord)

This is a very healthy dish. You can make this meal totally vegetarian without a significant loss of taste. The prepartation is fun if you have an assembling team. It takes a little bit of time but is totally worth it. I dare you try this dish. Giant Noodle Rolls Thai called "Goi Tiew Lohd" is usually eaten as a snack but makes a good lunch.

  • 1 package tofu - extra firm 
  • 1 tablespoon salty Chinese cabbage 
  • ground pepper 
  • 1 green onion 
  • fried garlic 
  • ½ package fresh flat rice noodles 
  • 6 sprigs cilantro 
  • 1/4lb bean sprouts 
  • ½ cup shrimp
  • If you use fresh shrimp, peel and devein shrimp. 
  • If you are using dried shrimp, remember to use salted Chinese cabbage sparingly because there is quite a bit of salt in dried shrimp. 
  • You can find the extra firm tofu at oriental grocery. It comes in a package, without water. Some are brown because they are marinated in soy sauce. For this recipe, either the brown or white firm tofu will be OK. 
  • The tofu should have the texture of mozzarella cheese. 
  • Use two pieces, 4 inch x 4 inch x 1 inch. If you love tofu, add more. 
  • Slice the tofu into thin pieces. 
  • Cut the rice noodles into 5 inch x 8 inch rectangles. 
  • If your noodles were refrigerated, steam them for a few minutes or microwave them, so that they become softer and easier to peel. 
  • Otherwise, they can be very difficult to handle and mey break. 
  • Lay the noodles sheet on a plate or large cutting board. 
  • Add tofu, shrimp, bean sprout, sliced onion and cilantro and Salted chinese cabbage on the noodles. 
  • Sprinkle some black pepper on top. 
  • Wrap the noodles around the filling. 
  • The ends should be open. 
  • There are two ways of cooking the noodles; the traditional way and the microwave way. 
  • To steam the noodles: If you have a big steamer that can accommodate a bowl or plate, put the noodles in the dish and steam the whole thing for 5 -7 minutes. 
  • You can also put the roll directly in the steamer, but is may be a little challenging to get it out after it is steamed. 
  • To microwave the noodles, which I find faster and easier without any loss of taste or texture: Place the noodle rolls in a plate and cover the plate and microwave for 6-8 minutes (depending on you microwave.) The noodles should be hot and steamy. 
  • Sprinkle green onion and cilantro on top of the noodles. 
  • Add a teaspoon of garlic oil on top. 
  • Serve hot with sauce. 
  • Prepare plenty of sauce. 
  • The noodles should be soaked in sauce for maximum taste. 
  • Enjoy this delicious healthy dish!
Giant Noodle Roll Sauce - Nam Jim Goi Tiew Lohd:
  • This sauce will hit your major taste buds; sour, sweet, salty and hot! 
  • The sauce is a wonderful compliment to the noodles.
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar 
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce 
  • 1-3 tablespoon ground fresh chili paste 
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce 
Mix all ingredients together and heat up the mixture in a microwave for 1-2 minutes to dissolve the sugar and warm the sauce.

  • If you would like a vegetarian dish, omit the shrim. 
  • Otherwise, fresh shrimp can be substituted with dry shrimp or cooked ground meat. 
  • You can save time by cooking directly in the blowls or plates you will serve in. 
  • With this meal, I present each person a bowl with 1-2 noodles rolls, instead of having them scoop from a common plate. 
  • Once a noodle roll is cooked, it is tough to pick one up without having if fall apart.

Green papaya salad is a Northeastern Thai / Lao / Cambodian spicy salad made from shredded unripe papaya. Locally known as som tam. it was listed on World's most delicious Thai foods.

The dish combines the four main tastes of the local cuisine: sour lime, hot chili, salty, savory fish sauce, and sweetness added by palm sugar. The ingredients are mixed and pounded in a mortar; the Thai name som tam literally translates as "sour pounded".

Despite the use of papaya, which one may think of as sweet, this salad is actually savory. When not yet ripe, papaya has a slightly tangy flavor. The texture is crisp and firm, sometimes to the point of crunchiness. It is this that allows the fruit to withstand being beaten in the mortar.

In Thailand, it is customary that a customer ask the preparer to make the dish suited to his or her tastes. To specifically refer to the dish as prepared traditionally in Laos or Isan.
