Crying Tiger Beef

In by Mike StinesLeave a Comment

Any Thai dish named Crying Tiger Beef probably isn’t going to be all mild and softspoken. But you can bet this traditional Thai street food lives up to its name. Instead of cooking a whole piece of marinated skirt steak (the traditional method), we bias-sliced a partially frozen steak and marinated the sliced beef. When the salt block was screaming hot, we quickly seared the steak strips to medium-rare, about two to three minutes per side. (The longer food stays on the block and the higher the food’s moisture content the more salt it will pick up from the block). To accompany the steak, we grilled marinated asparagus on the salt block until crisp-tender and served it with Jasmine rice.

Instructions
  1. Partially freeze the steak. Bias-slice the steak across the grain into 1/4-inch thick strips.
  2. Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Add the steak strips and marinate, refrigerated and covered, for two to four hours. Remove the steak from the marinade and drain well. Discard the marinade.
  3. Prepare the salt block for high heat cooking. Sear the steak strips for about two minutes or until done as you like.
