5oz fresh or dried rice noodles, blanched

5oz baby bok choy

1 cup bean sprouts, 1⁄2 cup Vietnamese mint leaves, 1⁄2 cup coriander leaves, 1 red chilli, thinly sliced, lime wedges and hoisin sauce, to serve

Pour beef stock into a large saucepan. Add water, onion, carrot, star anise, ginger, cilantro roots, garlic, cinnamon, sugar and fish sauce. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Strain, discard dregs. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Divide rice noodles into 2 large bowls. Top with raw Silver Fern Farms Beef Flat-Iron Steak slices. Bring the stock mixture back to boiling point. Add bok choy and cook for 1 minute.
