I always try to begin with a good preparation of the ingredients, no need in having to search for things in the kitchen once the cooking begins.
Even before this recipe I’ve always been in love with frying tofu. I find it goes well with vibrant meals and this one is no exception. Easiest way is to use firm tofu, make sure it is as dry as possible, coat with corn starch and fry until crispy. Dip in a sweet chili sauce such as Maggi Sweet Chili Sauce or make your own sauce.
The one thing I thought was unusual with this recipe was including french fries. I’ve never made french fries in a wok!
Skirt steak also known as beef bavette
Here comes the flavor!
And then the veggies! The french fries look so weird added into the mix but from what I have read, steak with french fries is very popular in Vietnam, and this recipe came from my very first Vietnamese cook book.
Add the beef back in.
Lets eat! I hope to try more recipes from this cookbook.
