Makes these delicious meat pies using a pie maker! Perfect for parties and entertaining. Easy pie maker recipe with step-by-step photos.

I have very fond memories of this dish as a child. Vietnamese Shaking Beef is traditionally served with steamed rice but, unfortunately for my mother, rice was something I refused to eat as a kid (difficult situation in an Asian family!).
So whilst everyone would sit down to this dish at the table with a small bowl of rice and chopsticks, my mother would make – just for me – a small serve of homemade French fries!
It was her version of the French Steak Frites, and it was my happy place.
A Vietnamese Beef Stew (Bo Kho) which is fragrant with lemongrass, star anise and cloves. Serve with crusty baguette or flat rice noodles. Recipe also for Instant Pot and pressure cooker.
