Crying Tiger Steak with Roasted Tomato Chili Sauce-Thai

Such a cool name for a recipe- no? The legend goes like this (comes from my cookbook “Quick and Easy Thai” by Nancie McDermott) “the tiger snatches a pawful or two of the Roasted Tomato-Chili Sauce, burst into tears and then weeps uncontrollably…” Another story from the book says the fat from “lusciously marbled beef steak melts onto the fiery coals and flame up like a tiger’s tears.” Either way, the sauce was not so terribly hot that my tear ducts went crazy. 371 more words

Traditional Northern-Spanish stew with a twist: cassava! This root vegetable very typical in Brazilian cuisine is by far my favourite, so I couldn’t resist trying to make a super clean, heart-warming and nourishing stew with it.  432 more words
