Brazilian Steak Salad-Thit bo Tron Kieu Brazil

Vietnamese food

If you are new to this blog, you could be surprised because of numerous non- Vietnamese recipes here and the portion might be smaller than your appetite.  That’s how I trained my kids and my taste bud myself too so we can enjoy variety of food around when being away from home.  All my kids moved out of the house and working in California now.  My boyfriend moved in with me on the Father day this year. Now I am only cooking for two of us and he is not a big eater either so adjust and multiply ingredients to suit yours.

This recipe is adapted to Weber’s Brazilian Steak Salad.
