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.

You can substitute prawns for chicken and mix and match on the veggies as well, whatever way you do it you’re in for a treat! Using the quantities below this will easily serve 3 hungry people, but it also scales up easily and you..

Thai Duck Red Curry with Pineapple

February 10, 2020 6 Comments

(Updated). Meltingly tender duck combines wonderfully with the sharp and sweet flavours of pineapple and coconut in a Thai red curry sauce. I’m not normally a fan of pineapple in savoury dishes (put it on my pizza at your own risk!) but it really does work with this dish. I used to cook this with duck legs but so many people have told me they prefer to use duck breast so I have updated the recipe to reflect that fact. This also has the benefit of allowing the breast to be served pink with the...

Pork & Lemongrass Meatballs in Thai Red Curry Sauce

These pork and lemongrass meatballs provide a wonderful contrast to the Thai red curry sauce. Really easy to make and as a red curry is one of the milder curries this can be enjoyed by the whole family. A big pot of them also goes down well at summer barbecues, assuming summer arrives:-)

Fabulous flavours….

As a lover of Thai, I took the plunge and ordered a selection of sauces from ‘mythaicurry’…very efficiently they turned up next day, and have proven to be everything promised in the glowing reviews. The Khukhan marinade is especially good….highly recommend all sauces.
