Grilled Beef La Lot

This is a delicious Vietnamese recipe that my mother-in-law makes, Bo La Lot. All the ingredients can be found at an Asian market. If you can't find fresh la lot leaves, sometimes they can be found frozen. An acceptable substitute for the la lot leaves would be perilla leaves or grape leaves.



  1. Marinate the thinly sliced beef with the following ingredients for an hour: lemongrass, garlic, shallots, sugar, 1/4 cup peanut oil, salt, and pepper.
  2. Wash the la lot leaves and let dry.
  3. Place the leaf glossy side down. Put a piece of beef onto the leaf near the point of the leaf. Fold the meat in half if necessary, so that the meat is contained within the width of the leaf. Roll the beef up into the leaf. Place on a plate with the stem down, to keep the leaf from unrolling.

  5. Heat your electric or charcoal grill.
  6. Place a layer of the la lot rolls on to the grill, brush on some oil. Flip after about 2 minutes and brush on more oil and cook for another 1-2 minutes. The leaf will darken and shrivel when it is done cooking.
  7. This is great served with rice noodles and fresh greens and herbs. Also great as an appetizer or served with rice.
