Organic Traditional Pho Rice Noodles

  • 1

    Parboil the beef bones for ~10 mins until all impurities float to the top, then rinse and scrub. This helps keep the broth clear.

  • 2

    Char the onion and ginger, either directly over a flame or in a pan, then peel off skin.

  • 3

    Toast the phở spices in a pan on medium heat for 1-2 mins then place in a pouch.

  • 4

    Add bones, onion, ginger, and spice bag in the Instant Pot and fill water to max line (~3½ quarts).

  • 5

    Add 1 tbsp salt, 1 tbsp fish sauce, and 2 tbsp rock sugar to the pot.

  • 6

    Pressure cook for 1 hour and then let it natural release for 30 mins. Then switch to vent to release remaining pressure.

  • 7

    While the broth is cooking, prepare the meats. Thinly slice the eye of round steak (tip: slightly freeze the steak to make it easier to slice) and cut the beef meatballs.

  • 8

    Prepare the garnishes - chop green onions, thinly slice onions, cilantro and mix together.

  • 9

    Assemble plate of veggies and herbs.

  • 10

    Once broth is ready, remove everything from the pot, skim the broth and skim out the fat.

  • 11

    Season to taste to your preference. I added 1 tbsp rock sugar, 2 tsp beef bouillon, 1 tbsp salt, and 1 tbsp fish sauce.

  • 12

    Cook noodles per package instructions.

  • 13

    Divide noodles, meats, hot broth, garnishes and black pepper equally between bowls.

  • 14

    Serve with fresh veggies, herbs, lime, hoisin sauce and sriracha.
