Bò lúc lắc
Bò lúc lắc (sauté diced beef) is a dish of French-inspired Vietnamese cuisine that consists of beef sauteed with cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, pepper, and soy sauce. The beef is cut into small cubes the size of playing dice (hột lúc lắc) before being sauteed. Beef used to be a luxury ingredient in Vietnamese cuisine, therefore the dish was mostly served at formal events, such as wedding banquets and anniversaries. Nowadays, it is a common food eaten by locals in Vietnam.
In the USA it is often called "shaking beef", which is the literal translation of the Vietnamese name and refers to part of the cooking process.
