Crying Tiger #BBQWeek


This week, Ellen of Family Around the Table and Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures have us sharing recipes for the grill. This is one of my favorite blogging weeks of the year! I love prepping food and handing it off to Jake to grill for me.



I'm sad that it's coming to a close. But I do have a lot of recipes to try for this summer now. Here's the final line-up.


Crying Tiger

Since I couldn't possibly let an entire #BBQWeek go with only veggies and cheeses, I am closing off the week with a simple grilled steak that gets an upgrade with a Thai-inspired spicy fish sauce. I saw some menus and people calling this 'Crying Tiger', so I am adopting that awesome name for this. It's almost so easy I'm loathe to actually call this a recipe. But you should definitely try it! I think I'll try the dipping sauce on the grilled lobster tail that Ellen, of Family Around the Table, shared (here).

Also my sauce is not a traditional Crying Tiger sauce. I added different ingredients, such as fresh ginger and soy sauce. And I skipped the sugar but sweetened with a bit of maple syrup.

Ingredients


  • 2 lbs steak (I used a grass-fed sirloin)
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper

Dipping Sauce

  • 1 T fish sauce
  • 1 T shrimp paste
  • 1/2 C freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 T soy sauce
  • 1 T hot sauce (I used sriracha)
  • 1 t maple syrup
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and pressed
  • 1/2" knob fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 T fresh organic cilantro, roughly chopped

Procedure

Bring steak to room temperature. Season liberally with salt and pepper. Grill to desired doneness. Let meat rest while you make the sauce.

Dipping Sauce
Combine all sauce ingredients. I placed them all in a lidded mason jar and shook to combine. 

To serve, slice your steaks and serve with the sauce.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!
