Vietnamese Noodle Soup


  • 8 ounces rice noodles
  • 12 ounces lean beef sirloin, fat trimmed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 large onion, halved
  • 1 4-inch piece ginger, unpeeled, halved
  • 3 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 5 star anise pods
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 scallions
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, preferably red and green
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 cup fresh bean sprouts


- Prepare the rice noodles as the label directs.
- Meanwhile, place a large pot over high heat. Poke the meat all over with a fork to tenderize it and season with salt and pepper. Sear the meat until charred but still rare, 2 to 3 minutes per side, then transfer to a plate. Add the onion and ginger to the pot; cook about 4 minutes. Add the broth, 3 cups water, the star anise and cinnamon, reduce the heat and simmer about 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, thinly slice the scallions and jalapenos (remove seeds for less heat) and tear the cilantro. Thinly slice the meat against the grain. Drain the noodles.
- Add the fish sauce to the broth and boil 5 minutes. Discard the ginger, star anise and cinnamon stick. Remove and slice the onion. Divide the noodles among 4 bowls; top with the broth, beef, scallions, cilantro, bean sprouts, jalapenos and onion.

Vietnamese Braised Caramelized Pork with Duck Eggs

This dish is from Binh Trung, Chau Thanh in Tien Giang Province. My Auntie Seven learned to cook this dish from her mother. Every week, she cooks a big pot to welcome her children and grandchildren back home or for her family to eat every day. During the Lunar New Year or death anniversaries of ancestors it is a must to prepare a pot of braised caramelized pork at home. It is often served with pickled mustard greens or boiled vegetables. It is so mouth-watering! (Contributed by co Bay)

Vietnamese are masters of wrapping their food. Bo la lot is neither raw nor deep-fried, but flamed on an open grill to soften the exterior and infuse the betel leaf's peppery aroma into the ground beef inside.

Savory Vietnamese Vegetable Dipping Sauce

Once my friend invited me out to try Southern Vietnamese cuisine, I was very impressed with caramelized fish sauce served with crispy rice crackers and steamed vegetables. A countryside dish but irresistible! This aromatic dipping sauce is made by simmering some fragrant fried shallots with shrimp, together with pork, seasoned in sugar, caramel sauce, fish sauce, and fresh chili.
Ingredients :
-100 gram dried shrimps
-200 gram pork, diced into cubes
-100 gram pork fat (preferably pork fatback)
-1 Shallot, thinly sliced
-2 tablespoons caramel sauce
-1 teaspoon sugar
-Fish sauce, sliced scallions, fresh chili, black pepper

Method :
Rinse the dried shrimps and soak in water in 45 minutes until softened. Then drain them with a colander. Slice the pork fatback into small pieces and fry them in a wok to render the fat. Put the liquid fat and pork rinds separately.
Use 2-3 tablespoons of rendered fat to sauté sliced scallions until fragrant. Add the pork cubes and shrimps and toss well in about 1 minute. Then add sugar, caramel sauce, fish sauce and stir evenly to absorb the spices. Add some water and chili and boil. You shouldn't boil too long to avoid making the shrimps and pork hard. When the shrimps and pork are firm and evenly coated with spices, add scallions, fried pork fats, black pepper and toss thoroughly then turn off the heat.
Perfect when served with crispy rice crackers and steamed vegetables. I will tell you how to prepare crispy rice crackers: -One bowl of ordinary rice, cooked -Mix the cooked rice with a little cooking oil and water -Put a non-stick wok over medium heat. Put the rice into the wok, evenly spaced. Add water occasionally and use a spoon to press the rice hard to make the grains adhere to each other. Once one side turns crispy and yellow, flip and do the same with the other side. Vegetable dipping sauce goes well with steamed vegetables. I'll share a tip to make the steamed vegetables green and crunchy: always steam vegetables in a large saucepan of boiling water with some salt, always close to the maximum heat. The water in the saucepan should be enough so as to store pretty much space after adding the vegetables. With green vegetables, after boiling you can let cold water run over them or soak them in ice to preserve their color.

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar with 3 tablespoons water and cook over high heat until a dark brown caramel forms, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and add 2 tablespoons cold water, swirling the pot.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the pork, shallot, fish sauce, caramel sauce, and pepper, and marinate in the refrigerator for 90 minutes to six hours.
Meanwhile, combine all ingredients for the sauce in a large mixing bowl.
When the pork is through marinating, remove from the refrigerator and shape into small patties, about 15 to 20 in all. Heat a charcoal grill or a broiler to high. Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the noodles according to the directions on their package. Drain, then rinse under cold water to halt the cooking process.
Meanwhile, grill or broil the pork patties until fully cooked and slightly charred, about 4 minutes per side.
Spoon the sauce into four bowls, then place the pork patties over the sauce. Place the herbs and lettuce in one large communal bowl and the noodles into another large communal bowl. To eat, dip some of the noodles into the sauce and eat with the patties and herbs.
