  • Add a cup of tomato sauce and mix well. Then add 6 cups of 1/2 liter of water (or 2 cups of coconut juice and 4 cups of water). Cover the lid and lower the heat. Cook for 45 minutes (or 15 minutes if you cook with a pressure cooker)

  • Because the carrots take more time to cook, we're gonna add them in first. Then cover and cook for 10 minutes. And then add in the potatoes. Cover and cook for another 10 minutes until soft. Finally add the onion and the baked beans and turn off the heat. Have a taste and add 1-2 tsp salt.

  • Transfer to a bowl and garnish with some cilantro. Serve beef ragout with some Banh mi or crispy baguette.

    I’m surprised there is baked beans in this dish. Is this a usual ingredient or your special twist on it?

      Vietnamese version does have white beans or green peas in it. I used baked beans just for convenience.

    Great recipe for cold winter day but I would use a good tomato sauce as ketchup can vary considerably depending on where end is located. In China it is way too sweet, same with canned beans I found. I rinsed the beans of sauce and happy with results. Ok to throw in an orange pell as well. Good web site and the ban mi is the best
