  1. Hi helen can i cook this dish in the oven and if so how long would i cook for i only need to cook for 2 people so would only be 500grams of beef.. cant wait to try this!

  2. I have the same pressure cooker but I have not used it yet. I guess this dish will be my reason to use it. I was deterred from using it because I saw videos of pressure cookers exploding! 😱 But I think you just need to release the pressure to prevent it 👍

  3. Hi Hellen, hello from your subscriber.
    I have lot of Vietnamese friends SO I have eaten so many version from all the Mum's and aunties and I myself cook Bo Kho from scratch to using the paste from the jar.

    This version is for Westerners.

    Love ❤️🙏 your cooking.
