Thai Street Vendor Videos!
This video demonstrates how to make Thai ginger chicken, and the street vendor handled it perfectly using her sidewalk kitchen. Try to use fresh green beans. Some chefs would use fish sauce in this recipe, you can add a tablespoon if you'd like. She remarks during cooking the dish that in the Chinese way of making this, alcohol would be added also. See our recipe for Thai ginger chicken.

ALWAYS like the videos- I am trying to learn HOW to cook Thai/Chinese types- all the books tell you what to add, but not the techniques used by the real vendors/pros. One of my issues is keeping the food from sticking- still working on that. Keep them coming!

oh please, Jack--surely your immune system could fend off the dreaded attack. I've eaten at street vendors' stands around the world. Never have I gotten sick. Always good, sometimes not as clean as at home. (But who sees the kitchen at most of the restaurants in the US???)

That looks so delicious. It did not look like a lot of food when she was cooking it but once she put it in the to-go box, it looked like a lot. I am going to try that dish. I've been trying different recipes from this site and I must say the dishes have been pretty good.

Yes, I too am agast at that bit of chicken sticking to the bottom of the wok turner. This one little bit of raw chicken could put a quick and painful end to a very expensive vacation. But in truth, the chicken is probably less than 8 hours dead and has had little time or opportunity to be contaminated.

What I don't understand is that the street vendor was not even using the wok turner correctly because if she was, the bit of food would have been dislodged. All or you "wok users", do not put the wok turner in the wok when you are pre-heating the wok. Heat the wok DRY and when it is quite hot, THEN add the oil. Quickly thereafter add the first food when the oil BEGINS to smoke. This assures that the wok is a very hot environment and will kill the dangerous bacteria. You must remember that many of the rice and vegetables grown in Southeast Asia are fertilized with pig and human waste. It may be repugnant to the spoiled, sheltered westerner, but returning waste to the soil is part of the age-old cycle that keeps the lands fertile year after year. This is why the "chow" or stir-fry method is employed in order to kill the bacteria associated with such fertilizer, and to use the minimum amount of fuel in doing so.

Oh, and one more thing. Jack is absolutely correct and the "ladies" are wrong. All of the women who "poo pooed" Jack's warning need to spend a very painful term in an un-air conditioned local hospital with a severe, life-threatening gastro-intestinal infection that does a permanent number on the liver to understand what he is talking about. This may seem like a joke to the sheltered and uninformed, but in reality, a bacterial infection can kill so quickly, you would not know what hit you. Please be careful out there!

Being a Thai who lives in the USA for the last 35 years. I discovered your web sight about 3 years ago through a friend who is also Thai. We love it. can't wait for the monthly email from you. I actualy use the recipe on the video. My friend and I often talk about the street vendors. As a matter of fact, we eat from the street vendors everyday because our mom was too lazy to cook. Oh, by the way, my aunt is also a street vendor. She cooks to order, but specializes in thai noodle soup. sa-wa-dee my friend, Meow
