Vietnamese Lemongrass Grilled Beef (Bo Nuong Vi)

Bo Nuong Vi is a Vietnamese dish where thinly sliced beef is quickly seared with onions and butter on a small griddle at the center of a table. Guests grill the beef themselves and assemble their own wraps with softened rice paper, grilled beef, and an assortment of fresh vegetables and Vietnamese herbs. They cook as they go, so each beef wrap is still piping hot and delicious. The wraps get dunked in either a traditional but pungent pineapple-fermented anchovy sauce (Mam Nem) or a more tamed Vietnamese fish sauce dipping sauce (Nuoc Mam Cham). A little cooking, a little talking, a little eating. It's the perfect way to enjoy time a get-together and good food.
