Crying Tiger Sauce

 A few years ago I was in the Thai border town of Nong Khai which faces the capital city of Laos, Vientiane, just across the Mekong River, it was in a tiny but very popular restaurant there where I first tasted this version of Crying Tiger sauce. I've encountered many different versions of this sauce over the years, some good, some not so good. In its simplest form this sauce is just a basic น้ำจิ้ม "Nahm Jim" or dipping sauce. The Lao owner & chef was kind enough to share her recipe with me, thicker and smokier than other sauces of this type I had come across before, it became one of my favourites, hope you like it! A word of caution, this is one hot sauce! This sauce also makes it easy to prepare an authentic Laab Gai or Thai Chicken Salad, a classic Thai dish that is otherwise quite difficult to obtain the ingredients for to make correctly.

One for the taste buds

Love going to my local Thai restaurant and this sauce is as good as the restaurant, top draw.

Marinated a couple of fillet steaks in this for about 5 hours. Cooked them on a hot griddle pan, sliced thinly & dipped in the rest of the sauce. Had as a starter before the Green Curry. Soft as butter but with once heck of a kick!!

Crying Tiger

This sauce went down well with all the family, but we all do have asbestos mouths. Although the sauce is extremely spicy the depth of flavour is amazing. Marinated the steak then cooked it over a high heat using the remainder of the sauce to dip our steak into…fabulous
