We recommend this product in the following Thai recipes:
Thai Pepper Steak, 'Neua Pad Prik'
This is a Thai version of "pepper steak", prepared using Thai ingredients. Thai pepper powder and sesame oil combine with sweet peppers to create this tender steak stir-fry. We used top round steak which worked great.
Thai Chicken Casserole, 'Gai Kaeng'
This is a 'Thai-ised' version of a recipe from Delia Smith's cooking course, called Chicken with Whole Spice, which is a mild pastiche on Indian food. This version is set up for a slow-crock cooker, but it could be prepared as a conventional casserole by simmering it on the stove top for about 30 minutes or in an oven at about 180 C for 30 minutes or so.
Thai Cashew Chicken, 'Gai Pad Med Mamuang Himaphan'
One of the more popular dishes on the menu in Thai restaurants in America but also Thailand. This recipe is time-consuming but the result is spot-on perfect.
The finest cashews in the world are grown in Thailand, mainly on the island of Phuket. Mamuang himaphan means cashew nut but there is an interesting translation. Himaphan's original meaning refers to the Garden of Eden, and the cashew nut looks like a small mango. The resulting pun can mean "mango of paradise", suggesting culinary heaven. We use regular refined white sugar for simplicity but you may use palm sugarfor a more succulent flavor.
Grilled Thai Sticky Rice with Egg, 'Khao Jee'
This is a popular Northeastern Thai (Isaan) style snack. An exciting and new discovery for people in Bangkok but it's easy to find in Isaan. We know a street vendor in Bangkok that prepares it perfectly, shown in pictures below. The finished result is a snack that's perfectly crunchy on the outside, has a touch of smokey flavor, and a soft inside. Khao Jee can be enjoyed alone, and it also goes great with barbecue pork or moo tod
Stir-Fried Tamarind Shrimp, 'Goong Pad Nam Makham Piek'
A very simple but elegant dish, serve with freshly steamed jasmine rice and enjoy this slightly sour, mildly spicy shrimp.
