Vietnamese Beef and Broccoli Recipe (Thit Bo Xao) Recipe

This is a quick beef stir fry recipe accompanied with broccoli florets and carrots. The sauce consists of sherry wine vinegar, palm sugar, soy sauce, oyster sauce and a bit of corn starch as the thickening agent.

I served the beef dish with steamed jasmine rice. It's that simple. Why order out?

Beef Stir fry with Bamboo Shoots (Bo Xao Mang Recipe) Recipe

I bought three large bags of fresh bamboo shoots this weekend, which I used to prepare an enormous pot of bún măng gà (bamboo chicken noodle soup).

Today I took the leftover bamboo we hadn't cooked, but instead of chicken, I paired the bamboo shoots with tender beef steak (bò xào măng). I stir-fried the two with oyster sauce and fresh ginger. To add a little color to the dark dish, I mixed in a few vegetables such as asparagus spears, carrots and Portobello mushrooms. You could make the exact same dish with tofu and vegetarian stir fry sauce if you need to feed a vegetarian crowd, (which is always my case!).

Vietnamese Oyster Sauce Beef Recipe (Thit Bo Xao) Recipe

Dưa leo xào thịt bò ("beef stir fry with cucumber" in Vietnamese) is really tasty because the meat is so tender it melts in your mouth. The beef stir fry sauce is both sweet and savory; I combined oyster sauce, hoisin sauce and caramelized onions.

It's not the prettiest but it's perfect for a quick and easy meal. I used filet mignon that I sliced paper-thin. I don't cook often with cucumber but in this case, it added crunch to the dish. I also added zucchini, green onions and cilantro. You can serve the dish with bún (vermicelli rice noodles), but for me, nothing can beat beef stir fry with rice. Just add đô chua condiment (pickled carrots and daikon) and you'll have a complete, balanced meal in no time.
