Welcome to Audrey’s Vietnamese Kitchen! Today I used my instant pot for the first time to make one of my favorite foods, PHO! This Vietnamese beef noodle soup is so comforting and delicious! See below for the recipe and let me know if you want to see more recipe videos! 🙂
Audrey’s Instant Pot Pho Recipe:
For the broth:
Beef biscuit (1-2lbs, depending on how much you want)
Beef bones (could be oxtail, neck bones, or others, depends on what you can afford and what your store carries)
1 large piece of ginger
An assortment of spices including cinnamon sticks, cardamom, cloves, star anise. You can use as much as you want depending on the flavor you’re looking for. See what I used in my video and adjust.
2-3 small pieces of rock sugar
2-3 tbsp fish sauce
For the bowl:
Hot sauce of your choice
Step 1: Boil your bones for 10 minutes to remove impurities. Wash bones carefully before adding to the instant pot.
Step 2: Heat spices on the stove top to enhance their flavor. Char your ginger and 1 onion. Put the spices inside a spice ball to keep them together.
Step 3: Add the spice ball, onion and ginger to the pot with the bones. Add the rock sugar, fish sauce, salt, beef biscuit, and fill the rest of the pot with fresh water to the max line.
Step 4: Close the lid of the instant pot and set the pot to soup for 1 hour. The pot will take some time to heat up, then will seal and cook for the hour. After the timer is done, you can allow the pot to natural release or do a quick release if you want to get into your soup right away!
Step 5: While the pho is cooking in the instant pot, prepare your garnishes. Put your herbs, sprouts and lime on a plate for serving and put the dipping sauces on the table. You can blanch the sprouts if you don’t like them raw.
Step 6: Slice some white onion very thinly and some green onion. Add these to the bowls.
Step 7: When the soup is done, take out the biscuit and slice it.
Step 8: Boil your pho noodles according to the directions on your packing. Be sure to do this after the soup is done. Put the cooked noodles into the bowls and top with meat and broth.
Step 9: add your herbs and sauces to your bowl and ENJOY! 🙂
