Quick Faux Pho

Quick Faux Pho created by cookinwithfire

Not quite the same, but still good. I usually use the chicken/turkey alternatives as we don't eat red meat in our house. I don't remember where I got this, some magazine I think...

Ready In:
20mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 4 (14 1/2 ounce) cans beef broth
  • 6 ounces rice noodles
  • 5 ounces Baby Spinach
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaf
  • 8 ounces pastrami, torn in strips (16 thin slices)
  • 14 cup green onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons chili oil
  • 1 lime, quartered

directions

  • Put broth in a large pot. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • NOTE - I like to simmer the broth with a 1" piece of fresh ginger (quartered) and a cinnamon stick for 30 minutes, remove the items and bring to a boil. It makes it not-so-quick, but it is more flavorful.
  • Add the noodles, reduce heat to medium and boil gently, uncovered, 6-8 minutes or until noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in the spinach and basil for the last minute of cooking time.
  • Divide beef among 4 serving bowls. Ladle soup over the pastrami, sprinkle with green onions and drizzle with chili sauce.
  • Serve with lime.
