  • Summary

    Use this soup as a chance to show off rich, slow-simmered homemade beef broth, or take a shortcut and use a store-bought base. Either way, you'll enjoy the fragrant and fresh flavors of this Vietnamese classic. Fish sauce, which adds a savory (and non-fishy) depth to the broth, is available in the Asian section of most supermarkets.

    Ingredients

    • 12 ounces beef eye of round steak
    • Two 2-inch pieces of ginger, unpeeled and thinly sliced
    • 4 garlic cloves, smashed
    • 2 star anise pods
    • 1 cinnamon stick
    • 5 whole cloves
    • 8 cups Beef Bone Broth or store-bought low-sodium beef broth
    • 1 teaspoon Asian fish sauce
    • Kosher salt, to taste
    • 4 ounces dried rice noodles, such as vermicelli or bahn pho (rice sticks)
    • 8 ounces kale, stemmed and roughly chopped (about 4 cups)
    • 4 ounces assorted mushrooms, such as cremini, shitake, oyster, beech, and/or maitake, sliced if large
    • 1 cup mung bean sprouts
    • 1/2 cup fresh herbs such as basil, mint, and/or cilantro
    • 1 small red or green chile, thinly sliced
