3 Noodle Salads: Vietnamese Bún, Japanese Chilled Soba, Shaanxi Liang Pi

by julie @ meat loves salt » meat loves salt

I mentioned previously that my default lunch during the cooler months of the year is a hot, steaming bowl of noodle soup (see our variations on quick noodle soups here). Similarly, during the warmer months of the year, I default to cold noodle salads. (Well, actually, I eat all of these interchangeably, not always corresponding to outside temperatures. :) Most of the time, what I end up making is a simple Vietnamese vermicelli bowl with whatever ...

Wok-Seared "Shaking" Beef Recipe (Thit Bo Luc Lac)

Wok-Seared "Shaking" Beef Recipe (Thit Bo Luc Lac)


Viet World Kitchen

Some Vietnamese foods have been poorly translated into English, and thit bo luc lac is one of them. Thit bo means beef and luc lac refers to how you have to shake the skillet or wok to cook the small pieces of meat. For years, my husband expected the meat to quiver and I assured him that the dish wasn't all that dramatic. It's had its usefulness at crossover Vietnamese restaurant menus where it's presented as the meaty option for steak lovers. Let's just say it's become downright popular, despite it not being part of many Vietnamese home cook's repertoire. It's actually a celebratory dish. In general, Vietnamese people, like many other Asian people, don't eat large piece of meat unless they're cut into small...

Vietnamese steak salad served on a bed of greens and tomatoes, topped with pickled onions and a lime dipping sauce. This widely popular Asian dish combines many taste sensations and creates a harmony of flavors with every bite. The "shaking" in the name refers to the tossing of the beef back and forth in the wok after it's quickly seared. You can serve this as a salad for a low carb meal or make some rice on the side. This is traditionally served over a bed of watercress which I couldn't find, so I used an arugula blend instead. Thick soy sauce is traditionally used here, but you can use low sodium soy sauce instead if this is not available to you. This was a recent recipe which I wanted to make as authentic as possible and upon doing some research came I came across and this recipe from Ravenous Couple who was guest posting on Rasa Malaysia.

Stir-Fried Beef with Black Pepper + Anolon/Cookbook Giveaway!

by Diana Kuan @ Appetite for China

How did the summer fly by so quickly? It seemed like only yesterday that I was looking forward to Memorial Day picnics and plugging free summer movies and concerts into my Google Calendar. Where did the time go? What happened to my summer reading? Why have I not taken more beach trips? How have I not once used my ice cream maker that's taking up precious cabinet space, for the 4th year in a row?   You can see how fall would inspire an existential crisis. Harrumph. Onward and upward, I guess. A few weeks ago, Kian Lam Kho from Red Cook asked me to take part in his Mid-Autumn Festival Blog Feast to celebrate his cookbook Phoenix Claws and Jade Trees. This gorgeously photographed book is a comprehensive tome on Chinese cooking techniques (think the Chinese version of Mastering the Art of French Cooking.) I was more than happy to oblige, fantasizing about the amazing red cooked pork from his book that I was going braise on the stove while sipping apple cider, as the crisp fall air—scented with pumpkin spice or something—circulates around my apartment. Well, I was wrong. Just cuz Labor Day came and went does not mean the weather catches up. In terms of weather, we're still in the midst of summer in NY, and my AC is as wonky as ever. Braising will have to wait for another day.  Luckily, there was this stir-fried beef with black pepper recipe. It was fast, hearty, and made ample use of oyster sauce for an abundance of earthiness. The recipe also called for a generous amount of coarsely ground black pepper, which is used as a spice rather than a seasoning in Chinese cooking.  I made a few minor tweaks to the recipe, such as using hangar steak instead of beef tenderloin that it called for because my local butcher had it today and the marbling looked too good to pass up. Flank steak is another good option.

Seafood Opo Squash Soup

by delightfulplate @ Delightful Plate

– Seafood Opo Squash Soup is tasty, healthy and filled with delicate natural sweetness from opo squash, shrimp, and crab meat. With just one pot and a handful of ingredients, this easy soup will come together in less than 30 minutes. Whenever I travel back to Vietnam, I try to stuff myself with a lot of good food. It was no different this time. The next day after my long flight to Vietnam, my mom took me to a restaurant specializing in soups in Hanoi. I ordered crab opo squash soup and really enjoyed its sweet and delicate flavor. I immediately thought I needed to recreate this soup at home. So here it is, my seafood opo squash soup, inspired by my recent trip to Vietnam. I added shrimp because shrimp and opo squash is a classic pairing in Vietnamese cooking. Seafood Opo Squash Soup This soup is made from all natural ingredients and dairy-free. The main ingredients are opo squash, shrimp, crab, shallot, fish sauce, stock and some cornstarch (or tapioca starch). Opo Squash Here is a photo of opo squash in case you are not familiar with it. In Vietnamese, opo squash is called “qua bau.” It has […]
