Steak Bun - Recipe
Bun is a Vietnamese noodle dish typically made with cold rice noodles, lots of crunchy vegetables, and thinly sliced beef or pork all tossed in a sweet and tangy sauce. It's perfect for a hot summer night. Serve with sliced mango and iced mint green tea.


  • 1 tablespoon(s) canola oil
  • 1 pound(s) (1-1 1/4 inches thick) sirloin steak or strip steak, trimmed
  • 6 ounce(s) wide rice noodles
  • 1/2 cup(s) rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon(s) fish sauce (see Note)
  • 2 tablespoon(s) sugar, or to taste
  • 4 cup(s) shredded napa cabbage
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) shredded carrot
  • 1 cup(s) thinly sliced radishes
  • 1 cup(s) slivered fresh basil and/or mint
  • 1/2 cup(s) finely chopped unsalted roasted peanuts


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet, preferably cast-iron, over medium-high heat until shimmering. Reduce heat to medium, add steak and cook, turning once, until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest on a clean cutting board for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook rice noodles until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes or according to the package directions. Drain the noodles and rinse under cold water.
  3. Whisk vinegar, fish sauce, and sugar to taste in a large bowl until the sugar is dissolved. Slice the steak into thin matchsticks. Add the steak and any accumulated juice to the bowl along with the noodles, cabbage, carrot, radishes, basil and/or mint, and peanuts; toss to combine. Serve immediately.
