Spiced beef rolled( Bò Lá Lốt )

September 23, 2015

Fragrantly seasoned grilled rolls of beef wrapped up in wild betel leaf  are a favorite Vietnamese snack that’s great with cold beer or white wine. When the rolls are cooking, the perfume of Piper sarmentosum is mesmerizing and fills the room. Shiny on one side and matted on the other, the soft, pliable leaves don’t have much character until heat is applied to them, at which point they release their sweetly spicy, incense-like fragrance.
