Thịt bò nướng lá lốt ("grilled beef, in lolot leaf") or thịt bò lá lốt ("beef, leaf of lolot"), bò nướng lá lốt is a dish consisting of Vietnamese beef in lolot leaves, which are called "betel" leaves by some English magazines. The leaves smell spicy but have a medicinal taste.[1] The food is often served or sold at barbecues.[2]

In Southern Vietnam, the lolot leaf is also called "Lá lốp".
