'Thuk Prahok' is the name of a traditional Asian sauce from Cambodia that's used to enhance the flavors of a variety of meat dishes, including steak, tripe, liver and intestines. In addition to being used as a meat-seasoning sauce, it also has applications as a dip or a thick paste for those who would prefer to season a dish to their liking.

The Kampuchean Grill specializes in producing "Cambodian comfort food" and sells its version of Thuk Prahok in conveniently pre-bottled jars. The sauce is traditionally prepared with a range of pungent, spicy and sour ingredients like sugar, lemongrass, lime juice, chili paste and peanuts. What gives the sauce its most distinctive taste is Prahok, or fermented fish paste.

The Kampuchean Grill describes its version of Thuk Prahok as "fishy, limey, garlicky flavor with a kick of spice."
