[Mmm...Monday] Bò Lúc Lắc

 
  My parents are pretty rad chefs, and they know how to keep our bellies full and happy. :) I am so excited to share an adaptation of our mom's B  ò Lúc Lắc dish! I add some vinegar to the mix to satisfy my sour taste buds. This French-Vietnamese dish, that translates to Shaking Beef, is given its name, because when tossing the beef in the pan, it looks like "shaking beef". This dish can be served at formal events, like weddings and anniversaries. Get ready for a quick meal with lots of flavor!
