YIELD: ABOUT 4 SERVINGS
VIETNAMESE PHO SOUP
If you love Vietnamese Pho Soup, you should try making it homemade! It's so simple!

PREP TIME: 10 MINS COOK TIME: 20 MINS TOTAL TIME: 30 MINS
INGREDIENTS:

8 cups beef broth
4 cups water
1 medium yellow onion, quartered
4 cloves of garlic, roughly minced
3 whole star anise (optional if you don't like the flavor)
3 whole cloves (talking about the spice, "cloves")
1 (3-inch) knob of ginger, sliced into coins
1 cinnamon stick
(optional: 2 Tbsp. fish sauce)
salt and black pepper
1 package pho rice noodles (look for the word "pho" on the package)
12 ounces steak, very thinly sliced against the grain (I used flank steak)
Garnishes: bean sprouts, fresh cilantro, fresh ginger slices, lime wedges, thinly-chopped green onions, thinly-sliced jalapenos, Thai basil
DIRECTIONS:

Stir together beef broth, water, onion, garlic, star anise, cloves, ginger, cinnamon stick (and fish sauce, if using) in a large stockpot, and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and let simmer for at least 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to package instructions. (If your package of noodles -- like mine -- did not have instructions, simply bring a large pot of water to a boil. Then cook the noodles until al dente, about 3 minutes.) Immediately drain the noodles, and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking. Drain and set aside.

When you are ready to serve the soup, fill the serving bowls about halfway full with noodles. Then cover with the hot broth, and immediately stir in the steak so that it cooks. Top with your desired garnishes.
