    Recipe ingredients and directions:

    about 10 lbs. of bones (beef, the leg part)

    fresh ginger root, about 1 inch

    5 small shallots

    2 star anise seeds

    1.5 gallons water

    one package of fresh rice noodles (banh pho)

    salt

    fish sauce

    1 lb beef fillet mignon, cut in thin slices

    one toe sized lump of rock sugar (available in Vietnamese market) (optional)

    fresh basil leaves

    green onions, chopped

    fresh cilantro, chopped

    fresh bean sprout (optional)

    fresh lemon (optional)

    fresh jalapeno pepper or hot red pepper (optional)

    Submerge the bones in hot tap water and bring to boil, then discard

    this first "broth" so that the "pho" final broth would be nice and

    "clear" and not muddy looking. Now for the real broth, add 1.5

    gallons of water and 1 tsp. salt and bring to boil. While waiting

    for boiling point, add these:

    Lightly charbroil the ginger root and shallots over open flames on

    your stove. For the ginger, roast until you can easily peel the

    skin, about 3 min. Peel off the out skin. Add to the broth. For

    the onions, charbroil until the outer skin layer are burnt, but

    don't over do it, about 3 min. Lightly roast the auiseeds for

    about 1-2 min. in a pan. Add all of these to the broth. Add the

    sugar (optional). When the water boils, lower the heat and simmer

    for about 6 hrs.

    For the rice noodles preparation, boil some water in a pot. Put

    the amount of rice noodles you want in a strainer (the kind with

    a handle, and small enough to fit in the pot you're using.) and

    submerge it in the boiling water for a few seconds and quickly take

    it out!! The timing is important for a good rice noodle. You

    don't want to overcook the rice noodle for too long ( even 15 sec.

    can be too long!!) and have soggy noodles! Just dip the noodles

    in the boiling water and lift it out (about 5 sec., or just done)

    quickly and put it in your bowl.

    If you have a lot of broth and only wants to make one or two

    servings, take out enough broth you want and bring it to a boil in

    another pot. Dip in the amount of sliced beef you want, just enough

    to cook the meat, depends on how well done you want it. Put the

    cooked meat into your bowl of rice noodle and add enough broth to

    submerge them. Then add the green onions & cilantro to garnish.

    Add fish sauce to taste, if needed. Usually the broth is good

    w/out any extra salt or fish sauce. Then garnish with fresh basil

    leaves and/or bean sprouts (a handful) if you like. I love to

    squeeze a slice of fresh lemon and a bit of red hot pepper (or

    jalapeno) to taste. This is optional. If you're using hot red

    pepper, becareful! It can too very hot, depending your your taste

    buds tolerance!!
