In Thailand, this dish is known as ‘Crying Tiger’ or ‘Weeping Tiger’. Basically it’s a marinated steak with spicy dipping sauce called ‘Nam Jim Jaew’. This is an amazing combination of spicy, sweet and sour. The tender, marinated and grilled steak slices taste so great especially dipped in the sauce.
