Main ingredients: fresh pho noodles, chicken, pork or chicken bones, young eggs, chicken intestines.
Additional ingredients: Cinnamon, star anise, cardamom, green onion, red onion, onion, ginger, coriander, lemon, lime leaves, chili and black pepper.
Step 1: Prepare the Ingredients
Purple onions, onions, ginger are grilled fragrantly, peeled and washed.
Roasted with anise, dried cinnamon, and fragrant cardamom, put in a cloth bag, tied tightly.
The remaining spices are finely chopped.
Step 2: Boil the Chicken
Rub salt on chicken to clean before boiling. Then, fill the chicken with water, add the roasted ginger, red onion and a little salt and bring to a boil.
When the pot of boiling chicken boils, you take out all the foam, then turn down the heat and leave the lid half-closed to prevent the boiling water from spilling out.
You wait until the chicken is just cooked, stick your chopsticks into the chicken without red water, then turn off the heat, take out the chicken, let it cool.
Step 3: Cook the Broth
Wash the prepared pork or chicken bones and put them in the pot to boil for about 3 minutes, then turn off the heat, take out the bones and wash them again.
Add the pork or chicken bones to simmer again. Note that you should not cook with too much fire because that will make the water cloudy, not clear.
When the bones are soft, pour the previous chicken broth in with the pork bone broth that has just been simmered. At the same time, add a cloth bag including star anise, dried cinnamon and cardamom to simmer for 20 minutes, then remove this bag.
Add young eggs, poached chicken intestines, then season to taste.
Step 4: Present and Enjoy
To enjoy, you need to blanch the rice noodles with boiling water and drain.
With the boiled chicken you tear or cut into bite-sized pieces.
When eating, you take the right amount of pho noodles in a bowl, arrange shredded chicken, young eggs, chicken intestines and sliced onions on top. Then, you add coriander and pour just enough broth.
