1. Put shrimp paste in a bowl, add lemons juice, sugar, chili paste, and chopped ginger.

2. Stir the sauce thoroughly to mix all the ingredients.

3. In the Mekong Delta they add finely chopped fresh pineapple.

4. You have enough dipping sauce for 4 persons.

5. Taste it. If you find the sauce too salty, fine tune with lemon juice and sugar.

6. Remember, this is usually a 4 to 6 hours meal.

7. In a summer evening, in your back yard with your good friends, it is very appropriate.

8. THE VEGETABLES Use several large plates to dispose the vegetables.

9. They are used with wet rice paper to make rolls with the meat and then dipped in the sauce.

10. The vegetables list: - salad: use the soft variety, Boston is the best.

11. - cucumber: slice it half-moon - bean sprouts - green banana (optional): slice it sausage style ~ herbs: cilantro, basil, mint.

12. THE MEAT You need the following beef cuts: ~ beef fondue, very thin slices - ground beef.

13. You have to put it through the food processor to get a mellow paste.

14. Because it is a very long and substantial meal I suggest you to plan a little more than 1/4 pound of meat for every guest.

15. On the subsequent try you can serve only the beef cooked the way you like.

16. HOW TO SERVE BO BAY MON Like any fondue Bo Bay Mon is not a time consuming recipe because it is a cook-it yourself meal.

17. There is not a special sequence to serve the different courses.

18. Do it as you like, the South Vietnamese are easy going people.

19. Here is the usual sequence. 1st course. In a small pot put on a heater make a mix of 1 cup of coconut vinegar (or wine vinegar) 2 cups of water and 1 tea spoon of sugar.

20. Let it simmer on the table. To eat the 1st course take a slice of beef fondue, dip it in the hot liquid for a few second.

21. Take a piece of wet rice paper, a little bit of every vegetables on the table, add the cooked beef, roll and then dip it in the sauce.

22. This procedure will be repeated for the six following courses, the 7th is a bowl of soup (if you can go so far).

23. 2nd course Use the ground beef. Add a little smash garlic, honey and ginger.

24. Roll the mixture around a small skewer like a pogo stick.

25. Grill them over a small charcoal fire or a small stove st on the table.

26. Two sticks per gust is enough. 3nd course Use the same mixture as in the 2nd course but roll it in vine leaf.

27. Grill the rolls. Two rolls per guest. 4nd course Use the beef slices previously marinated in garlic, lemon juice and black pepper.

28. Two slices per guest. 5th course Use the beef slices previously marinated in light soy sauce, rice wine, garlic and black pepper.

29. Stir fry the slices quickly in peanut oil. 6th course A good small piece of steak previously marinated in salt, black pepper and garlic.

30. 1 piece per guest. 7th course Prepare a small pot of rice soup.

31. Add a little fish sauce, a pinch of ginger, black pepper and scallion.

32. One small rice bowl per guest. THE WINE With Bo Bay Mon which is quite salty because of the dipping sauce, I think cool beer is the best drink to go with the meal but unless you and your guest have a high degree of self-control you will become bloated very quickly.
