Easy Vietnamese Beef Pho Recipe: Method

Step one: Pour beef stock into a large saucepan. Add water, onion, carrot, star anise, ginger, coriander 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.

Step two: Divide rice noodles into 2 large bowls. Top with raw flat-iron steak slices. Bring the stock mixture back to boiling point. Add bok choy and cook for 1 minute.

Step three: Ladle boiling stock over rice noodles and beef. This will be enough to cook the slices medium-rare. To serve, top with bok choy, bean sprouts, herbs and chilli (leave seeds in if you prefer more heat). Serve with lime wedges and hoisin sauce.
