Very delicious. I did things a little differently, but it still turned out well. I had made the patties earlier in the day. I put all the ingredients for the sauce/broth in a small saucepan (used a ripe jalapeno, as I had not serrano), tossed in the patties and after it came to a simmer, added some rice noodles. Once all was done, I transferred to a dish which had my torn Boston lettuce leaves and cilantro in it. The broth was very flavorful and the red jalapeno bits looked attractive. Oh, I used some agave syrup instead of cooking up the water and sugar, just a matter of available time. Definitely something I would do again.
This is so delicious...packed full of Vietnamese taste...this is differently a soup...I had leftover ground pork so that is what I used...but I bet the ground turkey would be yummy too! I cut the recipe down to serve 2 and there was plenty...I used soft soba noodles...what was really surprising was how the hubby raved about it...I cooked my patties on the George Foreman Grill...this is a keeper and going in my best of 2013 cookbook...thanks for posting it...=)
