Vietnamese Shaking Beef
"Working with @thefeedfeed and @beefandlambnz (#ad) today and sharing one of my family’s recipes for Vietnamese Shaking Beef (Bo Luc Lac)! This is a dish I grew up eating, it’s super easy to make - cooking time is less than 5 minutes on the pan! The steak has a melt in your mouth texture - especially if you use high quality pieces of grass-fed beef (Full recipe on my IG story highlights). I used tenderloin rounds from @silverfernfarmsusa. It was my first time ordering one of their sampler boxes from @marxfoods and HOLY WOW could we tell the difference in this grass-fed beef that’s naturally raised on open pastures in New Zealand. This results in a beautiful, natural marbling that made every bite juicy and tender. If you want to try a @silverfernfarmsusa sampler box for yourself, order from and get it delivered to your doorstep. They’re offering a special 10% off with the code NZGRASSFED ! #tastepurenature #deliciousstartshere & #feedfeed #paidad"

  • Steamed white rice, optional, for serving


  • Step 1

    In a large bowl, combine beef, soy sauce, garlic, brown sugar, oyster sauce, fish sauce, and chili garlic paste (optional). Let marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.

  • Step 2

    In a small bowl, coat sliced red onions with granulated sugar, white vinegar, soy sauce and water. Set aside.

  • Step 3

    Prepare bed of greens and tomatoes in a serving platter and set aside.

  • Step 4

    Heat oil in a large skillet on high heat. When oil begins to smoke, add an even layer of beef and sear for 1 minute on each side. Shake the pan vigorously for another minute until all sides are charred. Be careful not to overcook. *If your pan isn’t big enough to sear all the meat in an even layer, divide the beef in half and repeat step 4.

    Transfer beef to bed of greens and tomatoes. Top with red onions.
