Spices in Vietnamese cooking Not only herbs, spices are extremely important in Vietnamese cooking.

A good composition where all ingredients have their voices heard. Bad use of spices therefore either spices fail to sound or sound too loud.

Shallot     Shallot is the most popular spice in Vietnamese cooking. You can use onion as substitute at the absence of shallot. We use shallot to seasoning most dishes: broth, stir-fried, grilled, sautéd, Canh, stew, salad dishes in stir-fried dish and maybe Canh, we fried shallot then add other ingredients in grilled, sautéed and stew dishes, we marinate main ingredients with crushed shallot in broth, we add grilled

Vietnamese "Pho" Rice Noodle Soup with Beef

Vietnamese "Pho" Rice Noodle Soup with Beef


Epicurious

Pho Bo Editor's note: The recipe and introductory text below are excerpted from Mai Pham's book Pleasures of the Vietnamese Table. Pham also shared some helpful cooking tips exclusively with Epicurious, which we've added at the bottom of the page. To read more about Pham and Vietnamese cuisine, click here. This beloved noodle soup is a complete meal in itself and is best served for breakfast or lunch on a weekend. Because the simmering takes at least two hours, I like to prepare the broth a day ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator, where it will last for three days. Many cookbooks call for it to be made with oxtail bones, but I prefer marrow bones and beef chuck, which is what pho cooks in Vietnam use. A good pho broth needs to be clear, not muddy and dark, certainly fragrant of beef, anise and ginger. You can serve this soup with several toppings, but the easiest ones to prepare at home are cooked and raw beef. To use broth that has been made in advance, bring it to a boil, then add fresh ginger to refresh it. Come serving time, get friends or family to help cook the noodles and assemble the bowls. Make sure that the broth is boiling hot and the bowls preheated. Allow about 1 part noodles to 3 parts broth for each bowl.
