water 6000 ml -
  1. Phở bò tái starts with marrowbone that we wash well, place them in a bowl or pan, and at 180°C, bake for 30 minutes. Then switch off.
  2. Heat a pan at 200 to 240°C, put 240 grams of onion and 50 grams of gingeron it. If the onion is large cut it in half, if it is small, then leave it whole. Cut ginger in half lengthwise. Furthermore, on the pan, put the whole cinnamon, 6 pcs of a black cardamom and 6 pcs of badyan. The aim of this operation is to give the ingredients a little tan. Stir occasionally, so that everything is cooked evenly.
  3. Into 6 liters of boiling water put about 600 grams oxtail, 800 grams of beef ribs and roasted marrowbone. Add the content of the pan, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 3 tablespoons of a fish sauce and a tablespoon of salt. Cover with a lid and let the soup gently bubbled. This happens for several hours, in Vietnam they do it mostly during the night. Therefore, it is good to prepare the broth in large quantities. It is also prefered to use a large automatic "slow cooker".
  4. If you do not want fat in the soup, then continuously remove it from the surface with a spoon. This amount should be cooked for about 4-5 hours. During the cooking pour some more water but not after 1 hour before end. And just before it is ready add salt.  
  5. When the broth is nearly done, we can start preparing noodles, meat and herbs. Put the rice noodles in cold water for 15 minutes and cut the   meat.
  6. Beef tenderloin cut into slices as thin as you can see in the video. Onion cut into small strip or slices. Take off the coriander leaves and remove the thicker parts of it, and cut it into small pieces. Pick off perilla leaves, which again chop finely. Do the same with a Vietnamese basil. Mexican coriander is used in largest amount, has a pleasant taste of cabbage. Other herbs - just a little - we put in a bowl of soup. It 's up to you wheather you enjoy these very aromatic herbs and in what amount. From the leaves of Mexican coriander remove the harder middle bits and then chop them as wide as rice noodles.
  7. From the finished broth take everything out and strein it. Use a fine mesh sieve so the broth is free of small bone fragments.
  8. Noodles, which we dipped for 15 to 30 minutes in cold water now put in the colander into the boiling water, stir a few times with stics and they will be ready in about 2 minutes. {text: " There are different kinds of rice noodles. Some are instant, so just overflow them with a hot water. You better read the instructions for preparing which is printed on the package."}
  9. Now we begin to serve. On the bottom of the dish, which should be about 650 ml, we put hot noodles, add sliced ​​onion and a handful of mung sprouts.
  10. Put a sliced beef tenderloin in a scoop, dive it into a boiling beef broth and leave it to cook, as shown in the video attached. From the scoop put it into the bowl. Another way is to put the meat in a bowl and pour it with a boiling broth. A more practical method is the one with the scoop, because the meat is softer this way. Thus we have seen it in Vietnam Hanoi. Amount of meat is of course up to you and to your taste. The more meat there is, the more preferable method is described with a scoop.
  11. Now in a bowl put a handful of Mexican coriander, a few stalks of spring onion and pour boiling broth.
  12. Phở bò tái is served with herbs in a separate plate. The most common herbs are Vietnamese basil, perilla and coriander. Put little of these herbs on plate. All of them are very aromatic, so use just a small amount. Next, add the bowl with the chopped chilli or chilli sauce in a bottle, fish sauce, pepper, salt, lemon or lime and also in Vietnam is often served a pickled garlic. You can see the pictures of ingredients below this text.

 

Ingredients that are served along with soup and herbs.

Tip 1: Make broth always in large quantities. Do not worry that soup won´t be tasty. The broth can be easily frozen. It's the most difficult part, the rest is ready in the bowl in a minute.
Tip 2: You will have some difficulies to find the herbs in ordinary shops, but in Vietnam marketplaces they will advise you. For this case we have also named the herbs in Vietnam language, so they immediately know which one it is. 
Tip 3: The most common herbs are Mexican coriander and mung sprouts. Coriander, perilla and Vietnam basil herbs are very aromatic, and thus use very little of them.
Tip 4 : Use beef bones, tail and ribs in various combinations. It does not matter if you use them in different quantities. But always use marrowbones.
Tip 5 : Rinse the meat thoroughly in cold water and bake the bones as directed. This saves you a time with replacing the water, as stated in some other recipes.
Tip 6: Do not look for the original recipe for soup Pho, it does not exist. On the internet, we went through hundreds of recipes, but none of them were the same.
Tip 7: What to do with meat that was left of the broth? It is a soup called "phở bò chín", of which the recipe can be fond HERE.  
Tip 8: This soup costs in various restaurants from 79 up to 259 crowns. At this price the average family eats this soup at home 3 times. Do not underestimate the soup because is full of vitamins and minerals.
Tip 9: If you find this soup too fatty, then let the broth cool completely and the second day pick up all fat with a spoon, and then you have a great and healthy diet soup.
Tip 10: When you eat this soup as a main meal, ask yourself a question: Why Vietnamese and Chinese are not fat ... ? The answer lies in a bowl in front of you...

    Always sprinkle hydroxide in water, never pour water into hydroxide! Would occur chemical reaction - instant boiling liquid with a strong sputtering.

If you follow these principles, the production of soap is safe. | 

     

    The most important is to wear protective eyeglasses and gloves. Working with a strong basic agent, spillage could cause injury to eyes and the skin. In no case should be children present while working on the recipe. | 

     

    Sodium hydroxide is highly hygroscopic substance. In practice this means that immediately after weighing close the container, otherwise the substance absorbs moisture within seconds and the crystals will be bonded. | 

     

    Do not inhale vapours while cooking.
