Vietnamese-style mayonnaise (“Sốt Bơ Trứng”) is a one-of-a-kind ingredient in Vietnamese cuisine. Although it consists only of egg yolk, olive oil, lime juice, and simple spices, Sot Bo Trung boasts an addicting taste that goes well with many kinds of bread, sandwiches, and snacks.

If you’re a fan of mayonnaise and want to experience a new take on this classic sauce, I highly recommend giving Sot Bo Trung a go. The creamy texture and savory, slightly sweet flavor of this Vietnamese delicacy will surely tickle your fancy.

Reasons You Must Try Sot Bo Trung

“Sốt Bơ Trứng’, also called “Bơ Vàng” is an important part of “Bánh Mì”, one of Vietnam’s most recognized street foods. Unlike the sandwiches found in American cuisine, which often include butter or mayonnaise, the Vietnamese prefer using a combination of pate and Sot Bo Trung as the main spread.

In addition, the locals also utilize this ingredient in “Bánh Tráng Trộn” (rice paper salad), another well-loved snack found on the streets of Vietnam. Without Sot Bo Trung, your Banh Mi or Banh Trang Tron won’t have the most authentic flavor and will be somewhat lacking.

Even if you’re not making these two dishes, Sot Bo Trung is still worth a shot, as you can use it in place of regular mayonnaise in many sandwich recipes.

Tools

The process of making Vietnamese-style mayonnaise only requires two basic tools. 

Tools Needed For Making Mien Ga
  • Bowl: Choose a large bowl so you’ll have more space for the ingredients.
  • Hand mixer or whisk: For mixing the egg with olive oil and other spices. 

Ingredients

Basic Spices
  • Eggs: Opt for large chicken eggs. You’ll only be using egg yolks for this recipe.
  • Olive oil: The main fat in your mayonnaise. In addition to olive oil, vegetable oil, sesame oil, or peanut oil are also viable choices.
  • Lime juice: Like traditional mayonnaise, Sot Bo Trung also requires an acidic ingredient to avoid it from spoiling quickly.
  • Basic spices: Brown sugar and salt.

Step 2: Make The Mayonnaise

There are 2 ways to make Sot Bo Trung: using a hand mixer or a whisk. While the hand mixer helps you create this tasty condiment in just 20 minutes, whisking the egg manually takes a little elbow grease and about 40 minutes.

Using A Hand Mixer

Add a little lime juice, olive oil, sugar, and salt to the egg yolk bowl and whisk all the ingredients to combine.
