My First Taste of Vietnamese Shaking Beef
The guys at Hanoi Vietnamese Restaurant have been putting up huge signs about something called "Shaking Beef." With a name like that, I couldn't help but be curious, so I got it today for lunch.
Unfortunately, the meat was so tough that I could hardly eat it. Maybe that was intentional though; after looking it up online, I found out that the name of this dish was in reference to the cooking style (basically, tossing small cuts of meat in a wok) precisely because the beef can be rather tough.
Well, fortunately the garlicky sauce was a lot better than the meat itself, even if ultimately the dish reminded me of something sitting in a warm tray at Panda Express. I'm not sure how authentic this was either given my previous experiences with these guys.
