I’m always getting great ideas from the grocery deli. I don’t necessarily buy, but def use them for inspiration. For me that’s almost better because not only can I usually make something similar at home, like this Spicy Thai Noodle Salad cheaper, I can customize to my taste and any dietary needs, too.
Crying Tiger Sauce
The other day I posted a recipe for Waterfall Pork. It was outstanding on its own but one of the things that really took it next level is this simple little dipping sauce, Crying Tiger Sauce (Namchim Chaeo.) It’s fiery hot but tempered by a little sweet and it’s def a brew of flavors.
Grilled Thai Beef Rolls with Sweet Chili Sauce
Ok, so do you ever fall in love with a dish at first sight? I did, and these Thai Beef Rolls called to me from the moment I first saw them until I had them on my plate. Heck, there are a couple still in the fridge and they just won’t be quiet! Shush now, I already ate too many of you!!
Thai Cashew Chicken
This is one of my fave dishes that leans toward the Asian side, and it’s basically a Thai Cashew Chicken. The proper name, I understand is gai pad med mamuang tho admittedly, I didn’t know that until recently. Actually, until recently, even tho I’ve been making this for decades, I didn’t even realize it was heavily Thai inspired. Live and learn, amirite!
