Stewed Beef With Pate and Green Pepper

Bo Tieu

Having bread in a Vietnamese main meal seems unusual but lots of people do now, especially with a dish like this one. Hanoians eat a similar dish called sot vang.

Ingredients:
Beef sirloin: 1kg
Garlic: 10 g
Pate: 150 g
Tomato paste: 150g
Green pepper: 30g
Chicken powder: 3 teaspoons
Starch powder: 3 teaspoons
Cooking oil

How to make: Put 3 litre of water into a saucepan then put the beef sirloin in and bring to the boil, turn down and simmer for 4 hours. Cut the boiled beef in to cubes (2.5 cm) Put some cooking oil into a sauce pan, put in garlic, stirring until the garlic turns brown. Put the prepared beef & other ingredients in, braise for 15 minutes. Serve hot.

This is another recipe from Wild Rice which is not something you would normally associate with Vietnamese cuisine but it's really good in the winter.

Hmm...actually looks very good. I have never tried it and yes it looks very different then something I would associate as being Vietnamese food. However, I do remember when I was in HCMC there seemed to be a lot more people cooking "curries" of some type.

i love your recipes!

do you have any insight on non-meat dishes? i have heard that buddhists, especially monks, do not eat meat (avoid cruelty to animals?).

is it annoying if someone like me (american) comes to a restaurant in VN or is at someone's home and asks for vegetarian food?
