Chef Ace Champion invites his good friend Knockout Keo into the kitchen to make some authentic Vietnamese Phở. Keo is a three-time Golden Glove champion in his home state of Wisconsin.
Phở is a Vietnamese soup, extremely popular as a street food in Vietnam, made with broth, rice noodles (bánh phở), herbs and protein—in this case, a t-bone steak.
The steak is cooked in boiling water until medium rare to start the broth. The meat is trimmed into small pieces while your broth continues to heat, with the bone being added back into the broth to cook.
To that broth, you’ll add hoisin sauce, sriracha, soy sauce, beef base, cilantro, chopped parsley, and juice from freshly squeezed limes.
To serve, in a large bowl, you’ll add precooked rice noodles (you can find these at most major grocery and specialty grocery stores or in Asian markets). On top of the noodles, you’ll add the steak, beef broth, onions, more cilantro, bean sprouts, more low-sodium soy sauce, sriracha to taste and hoisin sauce. Get the complete recipe here.
