  • About

Tung still makes this flan the same way she learned in Vietnam: on the stove top—not in the oven, which is the more traditional method. For this recipe, you will need a stove-proof 9 in [23 cm] metal baking pan, either a 12 in [30.5 cm] steamer with a metal rack or a lidded wok or deep pot at least 12 in [30.5 cm] wide, and a small heatproof cup or trivet.
