The Only Steak Marinade You Need – Thai "Crying Tiger" Recipe

The classic Thai marinade for grilled steaks is really the only marinade recipe you need, and in the video I will explain why! I also share with you THE ultimate steak dipping sauce that no Thai person can ever go without: nam jim jeaw. If you don’t eat beef, both the marinade and the sauce can also work for any other grilled meats like chicken, pork, or lamb.

I did not mention in the video, but on the blog post (linked below) I share more about the common Thai dish name “Crying Tiger” which this kind of is.

  1. Totally love your channel. And your recipes. Mainly because you are easy to follow very descriptive and you love your Thai heritage.

    My question is what is that pretty small red appliance you have behind you?

    Keep up the great work.

  2. Thats with blood!!!!!!!!!! Nnnooooooooooooooooooooway!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. lol Jaew= 🤷🏻‍♂️

  4. Basically..white ppl can be down with it, it’s not super ethnic tasting 😂
    I’m trying this 👍🤤

  5. How much "Concentrate Cooking Tamarind" do I use instead of the homemade type you mention?

  6. I keep the marinade recipe, but will go for palm sugar or cane sugar instead of white sugar. Thanks for the recipe.

  7. My favorite recipe, I think… only a little different.
    Learned mine from hnong show ( โหน่งโชว์ )😁
    And I use pork neck.
    All summer my pork gets this treatment before hitting the BBQ!
    Nam jim jeaw I use for many things! Love it!!!

  8. I’ve had this at a now shuttered locale but it was called “tiger tear” and was placed on a bed of lettuce leaves, with onion, crushed peanut and rice powder, with heat set to Native. 🤙🏼🔥 delish, man I miss that place 😔 nice work ma’am 💪🏼

  9. I have watched all your videos but haven't yet attempted a recipe. Since it's Labor Day weekend I have the time to try something new. I expected to go to New York's Chinatown to one of the Asian supermarkets, but a little research showed that on a very short side street there is a Thai grocery store.

    I went with my list for this and two other recipes and the owner personally helped me find everything. The steak has been marinating overnight and will go on the grill this evening.

    Thanks for all the videos and recipes, they're absolutely great.

  10. Oh you slip มะกรูด lime leaves today 555

  11. Holy cow, the last time I came in here was 20k sub. Now it’s 1.4 million 😳

  12. me : watching this video at 10pm
    my fridge : don't think about it

    ขอบคุณสำหรับสูตรนี้ครับ น่าลองทำตามมาก

  13. I learnt something here. Placing the steak at 10 “O” clock ! Love the miniature whisk! Like it that she’s flexible.

  14. What a joy to watch and consider eating.

  15. Mjam, Mjam. Please send me the meat with sauce to Vienna

  16. น่ากินมากเลยครับ

  17. poor choice of steak cut !!

  18. OMG, my all time favorite dish. Saep Illy Derr.

  19. I am Going to my local and favorite Super Asian Market for the best and most authentic ingredients. I will grill this and make the dipping sauce today.I have fun at the market and because on the other side of the market is a restaurant, the men there always sing when I get to the counter: “ we know what your making” then we all laugh when I tell them and yep, they nailed it.

  20. Your gyoza recipe was so fantastic that I ate all the ones I froze for later. Following a recipe is always gonna be awesome when using fresh ingredients.

  21. อัล หล่อย อัล หล่อย

  22. When chefs add sugar, would someone actually in Asia use msg instead or both? I have nothing against msg, personally, and I know it's used widely throughout Asia, but using msg in a mainstream western based youtube video would be considered taboo, lol. Just casually wondering if adding both sugar and msg would make the marinade more authentic, or stick to only one?

  23. Wonderful ! Thanks for sharing! I lost track of your channel for a while! Happy to watch your show again ! Your kitchen looks a lot more beautiful!

  24. My motto for whenever I cook is “The cook has power.” I often eat a few good pieces of what I cook before serving it to my family 😈

  25. My ex-wife taught me how to make Nam Jim Jeaw years ago. I used to call it "Super Sauce". I still use it today for beef and pork. Even my 92 year old mother, born in Virginia, loves it! (minus the chili).
