I’m happy to report that I kept on with that concept and I still live by that motto and I am always trying something new on the menu when I have the opportunity to go out to dinner. But, for the beginner looking to branch out into another culture and cuisine who is looking for the “safe” option before diving right in, Beef with Broccoli and Onions is still a good choice in my opinion. It’s still one of my favorite dishes at the Vietnamese restaurant and now even in my very own kitchen.
Listed below is a house recipe from the proprietor of my local Asian market. He is always happy to share recipes and information with me whenever I go by to pick up some groceries. His family recipes are always a welcome edition to my kitchen.
