This stew develops fabulous flavor when made 1 or 2 days ahead. Store, covered, in refrigerator.
Spicy, light-bodied red: 2016 Feudo di Santa Tresa Frappato.
A pretty lacklustre recipe here - the flavours sounded great, and I followed the recipe the to the letter, but I agree with another comment here - this is basically a soup with meat and carrots in it.
It feels like this would be better reworked as a slow cooker recipe with less liquid. Or maybe just a long braise of beef to shred for sandwiches or something. I don't think this stew holds up on it's own.Read More
Yes the amount of water is incorrect,my book also calls for 2-2 1/2 cups of water.This should be corrected as it is a disservice to the authors book.Read More
The recipe in Andrea Nguyen's cookbook calls for 2 to 2 1/2 cups of water. Too bad no one at the magazine caught this mistake.Read More
Vietnamese bo kho is eaten 2 different ways. The very liquidity version can be eating like pho where you would eat with rice noodles and all the fixings. If you don't like this version, then reduce it so that it's thicker and then it can be eaten with French baguettes. For instant pot version, make it the same way except after the searing and cooking the spices together , the slow cook for a few hours.Read More
Good flavor but WAY too much water in the recipe as written. I used 3 cups instead of the 5 in the recipe and still had to ladle it all out and reduce significantly in a separate pan before adding it back in.Read More
Instead of searing the beef, I grilled it over an open flame instead. Gave it more depth. Also the collards at the market were DOA so I use Swiss chard and threw in some shiitake mushrooms.Read More
ditto, instant pot page is not workingRead More
Me too, Instant Pot version was noted in magazine as available?Read More
Good flavor but more like a soup than a stew. My husband wanted to eat the beef after browning. My daughter loves the broth. All things considered, we'll make it again.Read More
Also, looking for the Instant Pot versionRead More
Where can I find InstantPot version of Bo Kho mentioned in print magazine? Link does not work. Thanks!Read More
