When we mention about traditional Vietnamese cuisine, we cannot miss Stewed Beef (Bò Kho). It originally comes from many stunning Vietnamese Food Recipes. We usually serve this dish with bread (bánh mì) or steamed rice or even rice noodles. Each stuff will bring a unique flavor for stewed beef. My mom loves cooking this food when we have any party at home. Eating when it is hot, sprinkle more pepper and lime water will increase its fantastic flavor in your mouth.
