You love steak? Then you’re in for a treat!! This is nothing like steak, BUTTTT it’s so good your steak will taste like nothing!!! I’m serious. I have always wanted to make this dish but I was scared that the beef is chewy and hard. Turned out, it was so tender and juicy! Love it to the last bit. Next time you buy a cut for steak, save some to try out this dish. I assure you that you will not regret it. I’m not sure if this is 100% pure Vietnamese dish or not, but the name in Vietnamese Bò lúc lắc literally means Shaking Beef. Sounds pretty lame I know. Anyways this is the recipe
-400g beef, preferably steak cut, diced into 1.5cm cube or slightly bigger
-1 tbs sugar
-2 tbs oyster sauce
-2.5 tbs fish sauce
-2 tbs oil
-0.5 to 1 tbs black pepper
-1 small onion, cut into strips.
Dice the beef
Marinate with oil, oyster sauce, fish sauce, sugar, black pepper for half an hour to one hour.
Prepare minced garlic and onion
In a non-stick pan, heat up to medium high heat. Make sure it really is hot before you pour in the beef. Sear both sides. After that quickly give it a few shakes so other sides are cooked too. Remove the beef and keep it in a bowl. Add a little bit of oil, saute garlic then quickly add the onion strips. Give it a few strokes then add the beef back it. Stir well so that onion is coated with sauce too.
The onion strips should still be crispy and not soft. The beef is still juice and tender.
Serve with white rice. Enjoy!!!
