Shaking Beef with Watermelon and Wilted Watercress

Inspired by the dish bo luc lac, Chef Mai Pham of Star Ginger Asian Grill and Noodle Bar in Sacramento, CA, makes Shaking Beef with Watermelon and Wilted Watercress. The recipe showcases the bold flavors and contrasting textures of the Vietnamese kitchen. In a fiery hot pan, she sizzles the spiced beef and then quickly serves it with cool watercress and crunchy watermelon. This Asian beef salad is cool and refreshing, but also unbelievably savory and satisfying at the same time.
