Tom Yum sauce has a distinct hot and sour flavour and originates from Thailand. It comes as a paste or sauce and is an amazing addition to soups, broths and as a marinade when you want a real distinct hot and sour kick. Wagyu beef has a very ‘beefy’ flavour and it needed a sauce that could balance it out – tom yum is perfect!
Obviously Wagyu beef is the best beef in the world but this recipe can be with any beef strips, just make sure it is good quality!
I sliced the beef into thin strips and marinaded for 20 minutes in Tom Yum sauce.
Once I skewered the strips using mini wooden skewers, I barbecued for about 90 seconds each side. Keep turning and be very careful not to overcook.
Once cooked, I finished with a sprinkling of sesame seeds and spring onions – beautiful intense beef flavour, incredibly tender with a hot and sour kick. My kind of kebabs!
