Vietnamese Pho How To Make Ingredients
Vietnamese Pho, that delicious noodle based soup, is quite easy to learn how to make at home if you have the correct ingredients on hand. As tasty as an appetizer as a main course, serving Vietnamese Pho to your guests is sure to impress. Just as with making Chinese food, the preparing the Vietnamese Pho ingredients will take much longer than actually cooking and serving the savory soup, so set aside at least thirty minutes to prepare the ingredients.
To make Vietnamese Pho for four, you'll need the following ingredients:
- Three cups of good quality beef broth
- One pound of skirt steak, sliced very thin
- One large onion
- One stick of cinnamon
- One teaspoon of Chinese five spice
- One quarter pound of bean sprouts
- One jalepeno
- One half cup Basil
- One lime, quartered
- One half pound of prepared rice noodles
- One bottle of hoisin sauce
- Combine beef broth, onion, cinnamon and five spice in a saucepan. Simmer thirty minutes until flavors combine.
- Add in the skirt steak and simmer five minutes.
- Ladle out broth and steak in Japanese style bowls. Add rice noodles.
- Prepare a separate dish for the center of the table with the bean sprouts, sliced jalepeno, basil and lime. Add a bottle of hoisin sauce to the table and let guests select which items to add to their individual bowls of Vietnamese Pho.
Serve steaming bowls of Vietnamese Pho along with crispy spring rolls and warmed saki.
To get the thinnest slice, put the skirt steak in a freezer for fifteen minutes prior to slicing. Slice as paper thin as you possible can so that the skirt steak cooks very quickly in the simmering broth.
