Thai Beef Noodle Soup

A classic street-food bowl of deliciousness with a fragrant broth. The soup is simmered slowly for an hour and a half, so it’s great for cheap cuts of beef such as chuck steak that need longer cooking times. Add fresh vegies and needles at the end of the cooking time. It’s a one-pot wonder!

1 hour 40 minutes
SERVES

Ingredients

6 garlic cloves, peeled, roughly chopped

6 coriander roots, cleaned, coarsely chopped

1 tsp whole black peppercorns

1 tbsp vegetable oil

500g (1 lb) beef chuck steak (or gravy beef, stewing beef or brisket)

3 whole star anise

1 cinnamon stick

¼ cup soy sauce

1 tbsp dark soy sauce

6 cups beef stock

300g (10.6 oz) Asian beef balls (optional)

2 cups sliced Asian greens (e.g. bok choy, pak choy, Chinese young kale)

cooked noodles to serve (e.g. rice noodles or egg noodles)

1 cup bean shoots to serve

fish sauce to season to taste before serving

Thai basil leaves to serve

Steps
  • Step 1

    Use a mortar and pestle to pound the garlic, coriander and peppercorns to a rough paste.

  • Step 2

    Heat oil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add the garlic mixture and cook for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the beef and cook for 2-3 minutes or until evenly coloured. Add the star anise, cinnamon stick, soy sauces and beef stock. Reduce the heat to low. Cover with a lid and simmer for 90 minutes or until beef is tender.

  • Step 3

    Use a slotted spoon to scoop out the cinnamon stick and star anise. Then use the slotted spoon to transfer the beef pieces to a chopping board. Run a knife through the beef so that you get tender bite-sized pieces. Set aside until ready to serve.

  • Step 4

    Add the beef balls and Asian greens to the beef broth. And simmer for 2-3 minutes to warm through. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning if necessary with fish sauce.

  • Step 5

    Divide noodles among serving bowls. Top with beef balls, Asian greens, braised beef and ladle over the beef broth. Top with bean shoots and Thai basil leaves.
