The ingredients of this soup are: water, beef bones, anise star, cinnamon sticks, rock sugar, beef soup, “pho hoa”, “pho flavour” and cilantro seeds. The bones are boiled in water for about one hour and when done, the water is kept and the bones are thrown away. The noodles need to be cooked and the onions chopped. Last step is to add the noodles and onions in a bowl with the cooked meat. “Tom Yam Goong” is another delicious soup.
