-- Serves
SKILL LEVEL 4 servings
Basic Pho Broth
1 teaspoons Mazola® Vegetable, Canola OR Corn Oil
1 white onion, halved
12 cups cold water
2 pounds oxtail OR chicken wings
1 teaspoon white ground pepper
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon fennel seed
3 star anise
1 sticks cinnamon
4-inch knob fresh ginger
Salt to taste
Beef Pho with Flank Steak
8 cups Basic Pho Broth
9 ounces rice noodles
1 cup fresh purple basil
1 cup fresh cilantro
1 cup bean sprouts
1 to 2 jalapenos, thinly sliced
2 limes, quartered
1/2 white onion, thinly sliced
6 scallions, thinly sliced
12 ounces flank steak, very thinly sliced
Sriracha, hoisin sauce and fish sauce

Pour oil into cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.  Char both halves of the onion until dark brown to black.  Remove the onion from the pan, set aside and brown the oxtails on both sides.  Bring water to a gentle boil in a large stockpot.  Add the onion, oxtails and remaining broth ingredients.  Once boiling reduce to a low simmer and let cook for 3 to 4 hours, skimming off any foam that rises to the surface, tasting intermittently for seasoning.  Once the broth has reduced by a quarter strain through a sieve or colander.

Recipe Note:  Use broth immediately or pour into shallow container and refrigerate.

Heat Pho Broth in a large pot.  While the broth is warming, bring 10 cups of water to a boil.  Take off the heat and submerge the rice noodles.  The noodles should be al dente in 5 to 7 minutes.  Drain the noodles and set aside.

Rinse and dry the basil, cilantro and bean sprouts.  Arrange on a plate with jalapeno slices and lime.

Divide the noodles equally into four bowls, top with sliced onions and scallions and ladle the broth over the noodles.  Finally arrange the slices of flank steak on top each bowl.  Due to the temperature of the broth and the thinness of the meat, the meat will cook through.

Serve soup with fresh herbs, jalapenos, lime and sriracha, hoisin sauce and fish sauce for garnish.
