The idea of honey and beef might concern you at first, but your worries will wash away before you even take your first bite. The aroma of the seared meat with the fragrant cooked honey is only the beginning. Both the honey and the hoisin sauce give the beef a deliciously dark, caramelized flavor, while the lemongrass, chile, and dipping sauce balance the sweetness. The thick sauce adheres well to slippery ingredients such as bun, which this dish should be served over. Grilled beef can also be presented as an appetizer over greens, for a non traditional Vietnamese meal.
