How to make southern Vietnamese beef stew

Southern Vietnamese beef stew "bo kho" offers a blend of tender meat and a medley of spices, which is often served with rice, bread, or vermicelli.

This recipe serves 4-6 people, takes approximately 60 minutes to prepare, and provides around 3,000 calories in total.

- 1 kg of beef brisket (or beef shank/tendon). Opt for beef brisket or beef shank and a small amount of tendon so the dish can remain moist and flavorful.

- 2 carrots

- 1 liter of coconut water

- 1 onion

- 1 package of Vietnamese beef stew seasoning

- 30 ml Vietnamese rice wine

- 30 ml Mei Kuei Lu Chiew - Chinese rose wine (optional)

- Garlic, ginger, lemongrass

- Spices: Soy sauce, salt, rock sugar, stock powder, chili sauce, ketchup, star anise, cinnamon

- Herbs: cilantro, basil, coriander

- Cashew oil

- After washing, cut the beef into bite-sized pieces.

- Combine 30ml Chinese rose wine, 1 packet of beef stew seasoning, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons cashew oil, 1 tablespoon rock sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon stock powder, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a bowl.

- Add half of the chopped onion, minced garlic, and minced ginger to the mixture.

- Introduce 2 star anise petals and 2 cinnamon branches to the marinade.

- Stir the ingredients well to ensure an even coating on the beef.

- Let the beef marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes, allowing it to absorb the flavors. The longer you marinate the beef, the more it soaks in the flavors.

- Simmer until soft, remove cinnamon and star anise. Ensure timely removal of cinnamon and star anise when their aroma peaks. Prolonged presence may introduce bitterness to the dish.

- Add carrots and continue cooking to desired softness.

- For thicker sauce, mix a teaspoon of cornstarch (or tapioca starch) with water and add gradually. Stir well until desired consistency is achieved.

- Turn off the stove, garnish with herbs and onions, and serve hot. You can reduce the overall cooking time by adding a pineapple. Pineapple contains bromelain, an enzyme that helps break down proteins in meat. This natural tenderizing process makes the meat softer and more tender.

3. Finished product
