Ingredients

  • 3 quarts water
  • 1 (16 ounce) T-bone steak (or your favorite beef protein)
  • 2-3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3-4 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Asian beef base (may substitute with any beef base)
  • 12 Chinese basil leaves
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1-1/2 cup cilantro, chopped and divided (save 1/2 cup for garnish)
  • 2 lime juice (from 2 freshly squeezed limes)
  • 1 bag (small) rice noodles
  • 3 springs green onions, sliced thinly

Preparation

Making the Pho

  • 1 Using a large soup pot, add the water and bring to boil.
  • 2 Add steak and turn down and allow to simmer until medium rare. Remove from pot and cut away from bone. Add the bone back to the simmering pot.
  • 3 Slice the steak in long, very thin strips. Set aside until ready to serve.
  • 4 Cut stems off cilantro and add to simmering pot (add 1 cup and save 1/2 cup for garnish).
  • 5 Add hoisin sauce, sriracha, and soy sauce to simmering pot.
  • 6 Add beef base and freshly squeezed lime juice (you can add the squeezed limes back into the simmering pot). Simmer for about 10 minutes or until the T-bone is clean and white. Remove the bone and assemble in your bowl for serving, as outlined below.

To Assemble

  • 1 Using large bowl, add enough rice noodles to fill the bottom (2 good handfuls).
  • 2 Top with a nice amount of steak, then top with enough bean broth to cover the noodles.
  • 3 Top with green onions, cilantro and bean sprouts.
  • 4 Drizzle with soy sauce, sriracha and hoisin sauce. Add additional beef base (optional).
  • 5 Mix well and serve with chopsticks or a spoon and fork.
