I loved this! I doubled the sauce and substituted dried Thai chilies for the chili sauce.

I love this recipe! I want to make it for an Olympic themed pot-luck at work but I am not sure how it will keep overnight or if I can do it in a crock pot. Any advice?

This was a great recipe! I doubled it and would recommend that if doing so you just do two separate containers rather than making it all together. Also, it was missing that "Pad Thai" peanutty flavor, so I added a 1/2 cup of peanut butter and an additional tablespoon of brown sugar. It was great!
