Cambodian Lok Lak With Lime Dipping Sauce

Lok lak

Cambodian Lok Lak is a favorite around our house. It is a specialty dish many Cambodians eat on holidays and special occasions. It is also served in almost every restaurant that offers Cambodian food. Enjoy this exotic, authentic Asian recipe!


Yield:4 people


2 lbs. boneless pork chops OR sirloin tip beef roast, diced into small pieces
4 Tblsp. soy sauce
3 Tblsp. oyster sauce
8 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1 onion, peeled and diced
1/4 tsp. Knorr or Chicken bouillon
1/4 tsp. black pepper
splash of lime juice


In large skillet or wok, cook meat on med-high until half-way done. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer on low for about 10 minutes. Reserve 1 tbsp. sauce from Lok Lak to use in dipping sauce. On busy days and when I use beef, I place all ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low for 10 hours. Serve on a bed of lettuce and tomatoes(I was out of lettuce in the above pic) with Jasmine rice, stir-fried green beans and lime dipping sauce.



Juice from 3 limes
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
2 garlic cloves, peeled, crushed and slightly cooked in Lok Lak drippings
1 tsp. Lok Lak drippings
1 Tablespoon water
1/2 tsp. black pepper

Stir all ingredients in small bowl and serve on side of Lok Lak.
