Grilled Meat Dipping Sauce, 'Nam Jim Jeaw'Featured

Grilled Meat Dipping Sauce, 'Nam Jim Jeaw'

Nam Jim Jeaw is a popular sauce for grilled meat. We offer a packaged "E-San Sauce" (see below) which is the same thing, so now you can make it from scratch. The flavor is unique, smokey from the roasted rice, sweet, spicy and sour.

Nam Jim Jeaw is delicious served with grilled pork, grilled fish, grilled chicken or bbq beef. Also goes well with Thai sticky rice.

We now offer Namprik Thai Tae, a similar dipping sauce that you may equally enjoy.

    No need for the salt!! The fish sauce is salty enough.

    "Khao koor" or "Roasted Rice" is really easy to make. Just take uncooked jasmine rice and put it in a big pan (no added oil)... and just keep it on low heat until the rice turns medium brown. It should be crispy. Then take the rice out from pan, and crush it into small pieces. That's all :) you could use a clean large stone to crush the roasted rice if you don't have the tool Thai people use called "Kroke" (it's a thai stone bowl with stone hand tool to pound ingredients up; often used to make papaya salad)

    Toasted rice also key to making Laab. Make extra and store in a tight container
