Crying Tiger Beef

Serving Presentation Crying Tiger Beef

 This is a dish that is often served up in many different ways whether you are eating it in Thailand or overseas. This version of the Crying Tiger sauce is probably closer to the Lao style but it's certainly the way I prefer to eat it. This is a spicy dish and not for the faint hearted. I actually prefer to eat this outside of Thailand where the beef quality is generally better and I can have the steak cooked fairly rare. 

Crying Tiger Beef Ingredients

 Marinate the steak with half the contents of the pouch for several hours or overnight in a fridge. Cut into manageable portions if need be and grill or fry in a ridged frying pan until done.

I like mine to be cooked medium rare and then leave it for 5 minutes for the juices to settle before carving into strips. Add a tablespoon or so of warm water to the remainder of the sauce and some chopped spring onions, adjust to taste with a little lime juice and serve as a dip. I like to serve it with Thai sticky rice and Padron peppers from Waitrose if possible.

Wow, this is the first time I’ve had a Crying Tiger dish, so can’t make any comparisons with other versions, but it’s one of the nicest things I’ve ever eaten. I made it following Nitsa’s recipe, marinated the steak overnight, served with rice, asparagus, broccoli and green beans on the side. As described, it is very spicy and I’m used to spicy food, but not so spicy that it burns your mouth for 10 minutes and masks all the flavours. If you want a less spicy dish, you could just use it as a steak marinade and omit the dipping sauce, as the steak was also very delicious without the dip. I reckon one sachet could marinate three or four small to medium sized steaks, or two large ones. I used about a third of the paste to marinate a medium sized steak, so had 2 thirds left for the dip. There was quite a lot of dip left at the end, so next time I’ll buy more steak.

A very natural, fresh tasting sauce that’s obviously been made with top quality ingredients. Highly recommended if you like something spicy and tangy.

Chicken Khao Soi or Chiang Mai Curried Noodles

I firmly believe that Khao Soi should be ranked as one of the world's great dishes. You can call it a curry or you can call it a noodle soup and it is both of those with more on top, literally on top! A broth of aromatic curry paste and orange-tinged coconut milk with tender chicken falling apart for you, boiled noodles lurking underneath and becoming coated with fragrant oil as they break the surface. Crispy noodles on top you can manipulate and dunk into the sauce,

This is a totally delicious way to serve roast chicken as well as being very simple to prepare. Cooking a whole chicken this way is practised in various forms throughout Asia, sometimes pot roasted, sometimes over hot coals and with many different curry pastes. Often cooked in the home, rather than restaurants, which is probably the reason why many Westerners are not familiar with the dish. Well, now is the time to change that and I promise you that you won't regret it!

This is a dish that is incredibly easy and quick to prepare. If you have a bag of frozen seafood in the freezer and the whole dish can come together in the time it takes to cook the rice. Talking of rice, I find myself increasingly turning to black rice

Panang Thai Curry Paste
Gemma Evans (Liverpool, GB)
Just as good as restaurant

I can’t believe how delicious these pastes are I’m going to be ordering my second batch not to mention simple to cook and hard to go wrong if you stick to the right coconut milk. I also bought red Thai curry and that was just as good. The Penang I cooked with beef and Thai red with king prawns couldn’t fault them even my partner couldn’t believe how tasty they were and he’s hard to please when it comes to grub!!!!!! Fantastic worth every penny!
