Bò lúc lắc
Bò Lúc Lắc (Sauté Diced Beef) is a cubed beef sauteed with cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, pepper, and soy sauce dish in French-inspired Vietnamese cuisine. The name literally translate to “shaking beef”, which 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 (Cambodian adopted food) cuisine, therefore the dish is mostly served in formal events, such as wedding banquet and anniversaries. In the USA this dish is often called "shaking beef", which follows from the Vietnamese name of the dish and refers to part of the cooking process.
In neighbouring Cambodia, there is an almost identical dish called Lok lak. It is a Cambodian cuisine version of the dish, served on a bed of lettuce, cucumbers, and tomatoes and dipped in a sauce consisting of lime juice, salt and black Kampot pepper (tek merec).
