BBQ’d Beef Waterfall
Nua Yaang Nam Tok
Beef Waterfall gets its name in typical Thai style in that its a descriptive of what it looks like when cooking. You see Thai beef aint lean, like wot us westerners are used to! Oh no, Thai beef is really organic stuff and full of marbly bits o’ fat and stuff so when you barbecue it the fat dribbles out into the fire.
Here’s where a falang may get confused. Nuea Yaang Nam Tok directly translated means Beef BBQ Water Fall and the dripping=falling oil=water drops into the fire which flares up and kinda looks like a fiery waterfall. That’s the theory as best as I can understand it anyway.
Other things to note are the number of people stating that Beef Waterfall is a salad. Is is not! However it is used in various forms as part of a Salad recipe known as Yarm Nam Tok which is essentially this recipe which is then doused in another sauce/dressing and served up as a hot salad. After all that you’re lucky if the meat is still hot unless of course you live in a very hot climate as we do here.
