Vietnamese Grilled Beef in Piper Lolot Leaves - Bò Nướng Lá Lốt is a popular dish in Southern Vietnam. The main ingredients of Bò Nướng a Lot are beef which is marinated with pepper, salt, sugar, garlic, shallot, and lemongrass and then grilled when being wrapped in lolot leaves.
These heart-shaped leaves have a mild peppery taste and a very unique smell once cooked. Flavorful rolls of beef are carefully wrapped in lolot leaves and grilled until fragrant. Bò Nướng Lá Lốt can be enjoyed as an appetizer or a main dish served with cucumber, lettuce, mint, fresh herbs, roasted sesame or peanuts, and a sweet and sour dressing.
The unique fragrance of the Lolot leaves coupled with the grilled Beef is the perfect match for drinking with a full-bodied Spanish Wine.
The Luzon Cosecha Alaja Monastrell has a very good structure on the palate, fresh, fruity, lively and balanced with the typical notes from the Monastrell grape, perfect for drinking with Bò Nướng Lá Lốt.
