Daging Harimau Menangis

Originating from Thailand, this is a very tasty & popular beef dish in Malaysia too. Some say, the bottom sirloin part is called ‘daging harimau menangis’ because the cow’s hip bones prevent a tiger’s mouth from reaching there, so it does not get to savour the tenderness of it. 🤤 Well, do give it a try and let us know if it makes you ‘menangis’ !
