Heart Healthy Beef Pho with Rice Noodles Recipe
Make the broth: In a large saucepan, add the fennel seeds, coriander, cinnamon and cloves and cook over medium heat until fragrant, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the ginger and scallion pieces. Stir for 30 seconds. Add the beef broth and chicken broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
Pour the broth through a strainer positioned over another saucepan; discard the solids. Add the fish sauce to the broth and keep warm over medium-low heat.
Make the pho: Meanwhile, boil the noodles according to package directions. Set aside.
In a bowl, combine the beef with the black pepper, brown sugar, cornstarch, fish sauce and soy sauce. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onion and cook for 30 seconds. Add the beef and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes for rare meat. Divide the noodles, beef and broth among the bowls and garnish with reserved sliced scallion, cilantro, bean sprouts and jalapeño.
