Why is our Tiger is crying??? – – – (>_<)- – – –

One upon a time, our Tiger is the king of the forest (sort of).
He loves to hunt for a cow.

Once he caught one cow, he would jump to the chest part first as it was the most testy piece of all.
“It was sweet and so soft”, the tiger said.

When it’s time for the human go hunting in the forest, crazy human love the chest part too!!
So, whenever Tiger saw the dead cow with its chest part already taken or when he was thinking
about human is eating the cow chest, he cried so hard as it was also his favorite.

Poor Tiger..

Hehe (^v^)

Thai Food Recipe: Fried Thai Beef (Neu-uh Hang)

Thai Dry Beef (Neu-uh Hang)


1 Kg. beef (with some fat sticking to the meat)

3 cloves garlic (crushed)

1 tbsp. fish sauce

1 tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. grounded black pepper



1. Cut the beef in a long shape (about 7cm.). Make it as thick as your finger.

2. Crush garlic and black peppers altogether. I like to get the whole black peppers and ground them by myself because it has much better smell than the instant one.

3. Now, add crushed garlic and black peppers into a big bowl. Add fish sauce, sugar, salt and soak the beef in it.

4. Wrap the bowl with plastic and leave the bowl of beef inside refrigerator for 3-4 hours, it’s best if you leave it there the whole night.

5. Next, arrange them on the big plate or tray. Dry it with sunshine for about 3 hours. (Now, it’s your job to do whatever you can to keep it away from the flies.) :p


Don’t get disgusted yet. Use the thin white cloth or Fachee to cover the tray while we lay it outside in the sun.

Fry the dry beef in hot vegetable oil and serve with sticky rice.

I really miss it!!!

When I traveled a long trip with my aunt and uncle, we pack the fried dry beef and sticky rice in bamboo container. Yummy! The bamboo container can keep my sticky rice warm and soft for many hours. Order Somtam (Papaya Spicy Salad) from the restaurant and mom-made Pla rah dipping sauce from home!

Sab! Don’t tell anyone if you have some, or they try to take it away from you – ha!

I think this is what a common Thai Isaan family does when they travel.
