Bò Né (Vietnamese Steak and Eggs Breakfast)

Every culture has its own spin on steak and eggs.   I remember running off to school with some pocket money for breakfast which would include banh mi, steamed sticky rice, soy milk and many other wonderful dishes.  Bò né is one of my favorite breakfast dishes. Who can resist a skillet of marinated beef flank with butter and sunny side up eggs served with a crusty french baguette?

Bò né  literally translates into dodge beef.  I think this has to do with having to “dodge” the splatter of oil on a hot skillet when you add beef to it.  The trick to tasty bò né is to marinate the beef the night before.  This is ideal for Sunday brunch.

Ingredients:

1 lb of flank steak

1 teaspoon of fish sauce

1-2 stalks of scallions diced

Onion

garlic

butter

4 eggs (2 per person)

½ teaspoon of sesame oil

1 teaspoon of oyster sauce

1 teaspoon of sugar

1 teaspoon of pepper

a pinch of 5 spice seasoning

Marinate:

Trim fat off of the flank steak and tenderize with a meat mallet.  This will make the steak tender.

Add the beef and massage the marinade with the beef thoroughly. Let it marinate for at least ½ an hour.  You can prepare this in advance the night before or a week before and freeze the meat.

Serve in the skillet with french bread.  Traditionally, you would coat the bread with some regular pate. Then add the beef to the bread and dip it in with the eggs for gooey deliciousness.
