The shocking news: For a traditional pho-noodle soup with beef you have to plan well six hours. Because the 1st is elaborate and 2nd is not compatible with the evening, I have THE solution for you today.
Allow, 30-minute Pho. Fast, hearty and damn good.
Let me put it this way: This soup is a revelation. No joke.
Let me explain to you how we shorten the cooking time to half an hour.
For traditional Pho, the first of the bones is a hearty meat broth. This must simmer for two to six (!) Hours depending on the recipe, until it can be used as the basis for a good Pho. And there we have the sticking point. After a long day a big, hearty portion of Pho? Always here with it! But wait for hours afterwards? Uh, no thanks.
That’s why we’re smart and use a very simple trick for the 30-minute Pho: Good, finished beef broth.
Yesss, that’s the whole secret. I realize, I still have to work on my suspense. But honestly, it really can not be easier! You can probably argue about whether this is 100 percent authentic. But because we pimp the broth with ginger, onions and cinnamon, it tastes like the original. Only in much, much, much more practical. That’s what I call clever cooking.
And this taste! The hearty beef broth gets a fine sweetness with onions and cinnamon. Ginger provides sharpness and lime juice and soy sauce complete the whole. And I do not have to talk about the tender bovine strips, right? As if that were not enough, there are saturating rice noodles and fresh herbs on top.
All in all -> Fast Soulfood par excellence?
Ready to catapult you into Soulfood Heaven with a large pot of 30-minute pho? Let’s go!
1. Soup Base

Now you can let off steam! Rice noodles, sprouts, herbs, meat – what is tasty is allowed! If you prefer meatless, you can also take wonderful tofu or simply omit the protein insert completely. The main thing is that your soup bowl and your belly are full and you are happy.
