Vietnamese Shaking Beef (bò lúc lắc)
Bo Luc Lac (Shaking Beef) is a popular Vietnamese dish. No, Don’t think wrong, the beef doesn’t come to “shake” on your plate , the “shaking” here is the action of shaking the pan to toss the beef back and forth in order to sear all sides. Lost in translation, but this is still a great dish that is very quick and simple, while showcasing a harmony of Asian flavours.
