Spring Roll

My favorite way lớn enjoy these thinly sliced grilled butter beef is in a spring roll (Thịt bò Nướng Cuốn Bánh Tráng).

To make a beef spring roll, wet the rice paper. I lượt thích to use a rice paper water bowl, which you can buy cheaply at a Vietnamese grocery store. One half of the holder conveniently holds the rice paper upright while the other half gets filled with water. All you need to vì chưng is insert the rice paper, a sheet at a time, in the water. Give it a quick swirl so that all areas of the rice paper get wet. Vị not leave it in the water! Transfer the wet rice paper onto a plate.

The rice paper will soften in a few seconds. In the meantime, gather all the other ingredients & customize your spring roll. địa chỉ the grilled beef and any other vegetables lớn your liking. I like to showroom leafy lettuce, a slice of pineapple, a slice of cucumber, pickled daikon & carrot, và whatever Vietnamese herbs I can harvest from the backyard (mint, perilla, và sorrel). You can also địa chỉ cooked rice vermicelli for even more bulk, but I like to leave this out so I load up & enjoy the beef.

There’s no need to be fancy with the wrapping, lượt thích other spring rolls. Since it’s a DIY and grill-as-you-eat kind of meal, the only rule is to make sure the fillings don’t fall out. So slap those rolls haphazardly together because no one"s judging (at least not in public). The rice paper is like glue và will stick onto itself when overlapped, just like Saran wrap.

Cuts of Beef

For the beef, you can use beef chuck, tenderloin, ribeye, sirloin, or center round. Look for one with a good distribution of fat (marbelization). This helps to keep the meat moist và flavorful when grilling. If you have a butcher, ask him/her to slice the beef chuck against the grain into thin strips. You can also cut the meat yourself by putting it in the freezer until it is partially frozen. Use a sharp knife và thinly slice the beef. The partially frozen meat will keep the meat sturdy so that you can easily cut the beef into uniform slices.

Beef Marinade

You can leave the beef unseasoned since it will be cooked in a good amount of butter and onions. There’s also plenty of flavor with the dipping sauces.

To bring it to lớn a whole different level, I lượt thích to season the beef with freshly minced lemongrass, garlic, thinly sliced onions, oyster sauce, soy sauce, the obligatory sugar, sesame oil & orange juice. The orange juice works as a meat tenderizer và the acidity balances out the flavor very nicely. For a bit of heat, địa chỉ cửa hàng red pepper flakes.

COOKING

I lượt thích to grill the beef on a portable butane stove with a grill plate, similar khổng lồ Korean BBQ. This is my favorite way to lớn grill the beef. It gets smokey so bởi vì this outside if weather permits. You can bởi this indoors, as well, but make sure you have good ventilation.

You can also use an electric nonstick electric griddle, which you can just get just about anywhere. These electric grills have good temperature control and are super easy to lớn clean. The downside is you don’t have that amazing grill smokey flavor.

You can also simply toss the sliced beef in a large skillet on the stovetop. This is great for a busy workday or when you don"t want to giảm giá khuyến mãi with anything extra (I"m looking at you, sis!).

To cook, melt some butter on the griddle or whatever appliance you are using, và cook the beef khổng lồ your desired doneness. The thinly sliced beef cooks up quickly in a minute or two.

Dipping Sauces

The beef spring rolls get dunked in either a traditional pungent fermented anchovy sauce (Mắm Nêm) (my favorite) or a more tamed Vietnamese fish sauce dipping sauce (Nước Mắm Chấm).
