Traditional pho soup

Hello greedy friends

Tie your seatbelts, I'll take you this time to Asia and more specifically Vietnam to share with you a delicious traditional Vietnamese phô soup

The Phở is THE soup you can enjoy on every street corner across the country, at any time of the day

On the pronunciation side, we do not say "pho" but rather "pheeuuuu", we must insist on the end

Preparation: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Serves 4


  • 400g beef (steak)
  • 300g rice noodles
  • 60g cashews or peanuts
  • 100g soy sprouts
  • 1 small bunch of coriander
  • 1 lime
  • 2 red peppers (1 will suffice for the most sensitive)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 small piece of ginger
  • 1 lemongrass stick
  • Oil
  • Salt 


Step 1

Peel and finely chop the garlic Peel and chop the peppers, crush the lemongrass sticks

Step 2

Peel the ginger with a small knife or slice of a small spoon and grate it finely Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the chopped garlic, chilli, lemongrass sticks and ginger

Step 3

Mix over medium heat for 1 min Pour 2 l of water, bring to a boil, lower heat and cook to a low simmer. Heat remaining oil in a frying pan

Step 4

Seize the steaks for 2 minutes and 30 minutes on each side for a well-bleeding cooking and for cooking at a point 5 minutes max (on each side) But it will also depend on the thickness of the meat and there I refer you to the meat cooking table

Step 5

Remove from the pan and cut into strips.

Step 6

Dry grill in another frying pan heat peanuts or cashews in another skillet depending on what you have and what you prefer Rinse and peel the coriander and finely chop it

Step 7

Add the soy shoots and rice noodles to the broth and cook for the time indicated on the package. Divide the noodles and slices of meat in large bowls (if you have Asian bowls it presents well

Step 8

Drizzle with broth. Wash and squeeze the lime juice, add the roasted peanuts and pour the lime juice over each bowl. Add the chiseled coriander and serve the pho soup without waiting


Chef's tips and tricks

To get the maximum lemon from a lemon, whether you have a lemon press or a fork is to roll the lemon using the palm of your hand on a hard surface pressing lightly to concentrate the juice in the center of the fruit.

Now cut the lemon in 2 You'll be surprised to see how much juice you'll get

This trick also works for other citrus fruits such as orange, pomelo or lime for example
