Vietnamese Shaking Beef (Bo Luc Lac)

Vietnamese Shaking Beef (Bo Luc Lac)

Vietnamese Shaking Beef (Bò Lúc Lắc) is an easy and delicious one-pan meal that is excellent for everyday meals as well as special occasions. This dish features tender and flavorful beef plated on a bed of greens and fresh tomatoes.

The name of this dish in the US. comes from the way it is cooked. The cook adds beef to a hot pan and then shakes the pan constantly to cook/sear and move the meat around. It is a one-pan meal that can be put on the table in 30 minutes.

This Southern Vietnamese dish is a popular menu item in a lot of restaurants in the US. I think it is even more popular in the US than in Vietnam. I wouldn’t rank shaking beef in the top 50 popular foods in Saigon. In Vietnam, it is often served with rice or fries.

The dish tastes best with well-marbled beef steak. I like to use ribeye after trimming off excess fat because it’s very flavorful. You can pick other good quality cuts of beef steak that you like.

For the beef
  • 12 oz beef steak (such as ribeye)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar
  • cooking oil
  • 1 small red onion
  • 3 stalks of scallions
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1½ tablespoons butter

For the soy sauce mixture
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons
  • 2 teaspoons
  • ½ tablespoon
  • 1 teaspoon
  • 1½ teaspoons sugar

For the salad
  • 2-3 soft lettuce leaves, chopped
  • 1.5 oz microgreens (about 2 cups)
  • 2 small or medium ripe tomatoes
