Nam tok can be also an Isan and Lao meat dish which is similar to lap(larb). This dish is known in Lao as ping sin nam tok (Lao: ປິ້ງຊິ້ນນ້ຳຕົກ) and in Thai as nuea yang nam tok (Thai: เนื้อย่างน้ำตก, « waterfall grilled beef »), if made with beef, and as mu nam tok (Thai: หมูน้ำตก, « waterfall pork »), if made with pork. The name supposedly refers to the fact that there is still « water », or liquid, in the meat, that is, blood. The « dressing » of this meat-based salad is made with ground roasted rice, ground dried chillies, fish sauce, lime juice, shallots and mint leaves. It can also feature spring onions. It is traditionally eaten with sticky rice and comes with raw vegetables such as thua fak yao (Thai: ถั่วฝักยาว, yardlong beans) andkalam pli (Thai: กะหล่ำปลี, cabbage).
