Vietnamese Beef Pho

My new fav soup. For this recipe I used 'Asian Home Gourmet' Pho paste, purchased from Coles. I also omitted the noodles purely for kilojoule counting purposes, and I felt that it was still a hearty, high-protein soup. Here a few few photos taken over two nights of dinner.

Finely sliced onion, bean sprouts, finely sliced lean beef, and red chilli are added to the serving bowl.

First night.....

Second night....a little more appealing with some garnish.

I'm absolutely loving these melamine spoons at the moment.

Serves 1
1/3 packet Asian Home Gourmet Vietnamese Pho Spice Paste
2 cups water
1/4 onion, sliced finely
100g lean beef, sliced finely
1/4 cup beansprouts
juice of 1/4 lime
1/2 red chilli (or to taste)

Bring water and spice paste to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer for 5 mintues.
Place onion, beanshoots, beef and chilli in serving bowl, pour soup water over these ingredients. Serve with lime.

Tip: To slice meat thinly, semi-freeze and slice with a sharp knife.
