Kho is a cooking technique in Vietnamese cuisine meaning "to braise", "to stew", or "to simmer" [1] in which a protein source such as fish, shrimp, poultry, pork, beef, or fried tofu is braised on low heat in a mixture of fish sauce, sugar, and water or a water substitute such as young coconut juice. The resulting dish is salty and savory, and meant to be eaten with rice noodles, French bread, or steamed rice.
