No Crying Tiger Here
Only a Happy Duck!
Let me tell you a story about a crying tiger who turned into a happy duck.
A few years back I went out to dinner and got a bit drunk.
Ok a lot drunk. That’s not the point!
Anywayz, during dinner I had one of my favorite dishes, Crying Tiger.
It was totally awesome.
This version used wagyu beef and had a salsa on it.
Not your average crying tiger that’s for sure.
The next morning, when I was no longer drunk.
I got to thinking, why the hell do they call it crying tiger?
For the life of me I couldn’t work it out.
Then it struck me like a lighting bolt. Its cause the tiger had no spice in it life.
So I thought Duck it!!!
I’m going to make my own version with chili.
Lots of chili, and if crying is a must, it going to be tears of joy!
I didn’t have any wagyu lying around, who the duck does right ?
So I opted for duck breast instead.
I then raided the fridge for what herbs I had on hand, then proceeded to scrounger around in the pantry to see what other ingredients I could find and the end result was this dish.
So that’s how a Crying Tiger became a Happy Duck 😊😊😊
Now as this was way back in 2016 and I hadn’t started the blog yet. I wasn’t making videos or writing recipes. As such I only took photos and made a slide show to post on my Instagram.
This is the link to the original post I did way back then.
Feel free to give me a like and follow whilst your there 🙂
So since then I have wrote a recipe which I’m still refining from this original, and I will be posting in an up coming post. So keep an eye out for that.
But this was how I made it that faithful morning.
