nam tok nam tok

Nam Tok translated literally is "water fall" but actually means dripping juice. The juice drips out from the steak while cooking.

Nam tok is fast and easy to make, the ingredients are easy to find and yet, the dish is full of Thai flavors. At its core, you're grilling meat without marinade, then cutting, seasoning and tossing a salad.

If you have a leftover steak that is not heavily seasoned, you can turn it into nam tok, too.

Nam tok, a northeastern dish, is served with sticky rice and fresh vegetables.

Tips and Techniques

  • 2-minute Toasted RiceToast rice (regular or sticky) in a pan over medium heat. Move the rice around constantly to prevent burning and achieve even browning. The rice should be dark brown (not burnt) in about 2 minutes. Grind the rice in mortar.
  • Toasted rice not only provides the nutty flavor, but also rounds the fish sauce and lime juice in.
