My parents recently visited us from sunny Las Vegas, Nevada, and with them they brought a recipe that I am going to share. Some history on the sauce is that my parents have been invited to my dad’s coworker’s house for a couple of parties. They say the parties are very similar to those that my in-laws have, the kind that last all day, and cousins, uncles, friends and family attend all day long. A party where cooking is important, as well as the drinking and entertaining, you know, how a party should be. Their friends are Filipino and Hawaiian descent, meaning by the sounds of it, the party already sounds fun! My parents have been bragging about this sauce their friends make, seriously bragging about how good it is. They serve it as a dipping sauce to a huge slab of beef they through on a rotisserie for hours. The ingredients are not much different from the Thai dipping sauce I make, however this one uses soy sauce and onions.
- Low Sodium Soy Sauce (They recommend Aloha brand)
- One cup of finally chopped onion
- Juice of one lime
- 10 chopped thai peppers
Based on the ingredients, things could not be easier. Be mindful when handling the thai peppers to wash your hands afterwards, as you would not want to rub your eyes after chopping the onion! Combine all of your ingredients together and let marinade for a couple of hours before using. You can keep the sauce in an airtight container for a couple of weeks. My parents were right, the sauce was awesome, especially with beef.
