Bo Luc Lac (Vietnamese Shaking Beef) - You can use any cut of steak you like such as filet or ribeye, but we prefer sirloin. Some restaurants serve it with sauteed onions, lettuce, and rice (white or tomato paste rice) while others may present it more like a steak salad served on a bed of watercress and tomatoes, topped with pickled onions.
For decades, brussels sprouts battled a bad reputation. But the ways they’re being cooked now would make any vegetable jealous: roasted with honey and harissa until crispy; sautéed with salty sausage and topped with pickled red onions; doused with cream and baked with cheese until thick and bubbling. Here are five simple methods for cooking brussels sprouts, which are more versatile than greens and just as delicious.
Roasting brussels sprouts may be the best and most delicious way to prepare them. Exposed to high heat, they caramelize and become very crispy (even more so when tossed in a sticky and spicy honey-harissa mixture before roasting). Here, they're finished with a slightly bitter and wonderfully tart lemon relish to bring them back from the brink of too much sweetness. (Photo: Karsten Moran for NYT)
