Vietnamese black pepper beef

Posted on Updated on

For the days that I felt too lazy to cook ‘real’ meals, I have a stash of paste & sauces in my freezer – sambal balado, xa ot paste, xo sauce and many more.  My favorite, is the ‘bo luc lac’ paste, a Vietnamese black pepper paste.

It is such a simple stir fry – onion and beef (cubes or slices) with some ‘bo luc lac’ paste, a dash of oyster sauce, a dash of dark soy sauce and a dash of sesame oil; 5 minutes it is done; garnish with some green shallot and chili if preferred.

Served with salad or rice; some may prefers to enjoy with some pickled thinly sliced onion.

      Hi Kelvin, good to hear from you. Many years ago as a struggling student, I worked for a Vietnamese restaurant in Sydney. This was the brand of the bo luc lac sauce they used. It is a nice sauce, really tasty. I did a search on the internet. Unfortunately I couldn’t find this brand of bo luc lac sauce available online. Would you like to make your own sauce? If you like, next time I pick up a jar I can send you the key ingredients. Cheers, Rebecca
