Description

Super quick cheaters version of the classic warming Vietnamese noodle soup.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Sirloin Steak, Cut Into Strips
  • 1 teaspoon Grated Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Grated Lemon Grass (white Parts)
  • ½ teaspoons Fish Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar, Divided Use
  • 1 teaspoon Dark Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 2 whole Star Anise
  • 1 teaspoon Coriander Seeds
  • 3 whole Cloves
  • 8 stalks Coriander Stems (save Leaves For Garnish)
  • 2 stalks Lemon Grasss
  • 1 whole Red Onion, Finely Chopped
  • 6 cups Water
  • 1 piece Thumb-sized Ginger, Crushed
  • 1 cube Beef Stock Cube
  • 1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Light Soy Sauce (to Taste)
  • 12 ounces, weight Extra Firm 5 Spice Tofu
  • 3 bunches Bok Choy, Quartered Or Leaves Separated And Washed
  • 1 cup Oyster Mushroom
  • 1-½ pound Fresh Kuey Teow (Flat Rice Noodles)
  • 1 cup Mixed Chopped Mint And Coriander Leaves
  • 2 stalks Spring Onion, Chopped
  • 1 wheel Red Chilli, Sliced Thinly

Preparation

Begin by marinating beef strips in a non-reactive bowl with the grated ginger, grated lemongrass, 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce, 1 tablespoon brown sugar and dark soy sauce. Leave it to sit while you chop up the other ingredients.

Heat a deep stock pot over medium heat and add vegetable oil. Once oil is hot add the star anise, coriander seeds and cloves and toast for 1 minute until fragrant. Remove spices and set aside.

Bring the heat up to medium-high. Sear the beef strips in 3 batches, 1 minute per batch. Strips should be golden brown but not over cooked. Slight pink is expected. Remove each batch from the pot and set aside on a plate while you cook all of the beef.

Once all of the beef is cooked and removed from the pot toss in coriander stalks, lemongrass stalk, toasted spices, red onion, water, ginger, stock cube, remaining brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of fish sauce and the soy sauce. Bring to a boil and leave to simmer for 30 minutes. Scrape the bottom of the pot to loosen any browned beef juices left after searing the meat.

Use a slotted spoon and fish out the spices and herbs once broth is ready. Add in tofu, bok choy and oyster mushrooms and simmer until bok choy has wilted slightly but is still vibrantly green, about 1 minute. Taste for seasoning and adjust.

Meanwhile, give the rice noodles a rinse with hot water to get rid of the excess oil and also to warm it through.

Divide noodles into 4 separate bowls (if you’re us, only 2 bowls, leaving excess for another meal). Pour in sufficient broth. Arrange bok choy, tofu and mushrooms on top. Scatter the seared beef, chopped mint, coriander leaves, spring onions and sliced chilies over the top.

Enjoy on a cold cold day or when you are feeling less than well.
