Vietnamese Rare Beef in Lime Juice Salad (Bo tai chanh)

Vietnamese Rare Beef in Lime Juice Salad (Bo tai chanh)

Vietnamese rare beef in lime juice (bo tai chanh) is a refreshing beef salad with a tangy flavor profile.

Bò tái chanh is one of the popular salads of Northern Vietnam. The salad tastes best once slightly chilled in the refrigerator. As a result, I find it perfect as a summer side dish alongside a cold beverage.

The dish consists of beef cured in lime juice, crunchy carrots, onions, refreshing herbs, and roasted peanuts. I like to use a lot of cilantro, mint, and Thai basil for the salad. Also, be very generous with the roasted peanuts.

For the onion and carrot
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 small or medium carrot, julienned
  • ½ cup water
  • 2½ tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

For the beef
  • 8 oz beef
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (to taste)

Other ingredients
  • 1½ teaspoons (to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon sugar (to taste)
  • ⅓ cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • ⅓ cup mint, roughly chopped
  • ⅓ cup Thai basil, roughly chopped
  • roasted peanuts, lightly crushed (about ¼ cup or 30-40g)
