Instant Pot Vietnamese Pho Recipe
When it comes to soups, Vietnamese pho has become very popular. Pho is a type of Vietnamese soup made with a clear, deliciously flavoured beef broth, rice noodles, slices of meat and various toppings. This authentic Vietnamese soup takes anywhere from 6 to 10 hours to cook.
By using Instant Pot, you reduce the cooking time and retain more nutrients!
The rich beef broth for the pho takes only 2 hours of cooking time in Instant Pot. And, the exotic Vietnamese flavours are the same as cooking the broth the traditional method. The spices are coriander, anise, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger to get that pho flavour.
When making pho you can use many different cuts of meat, like brisket, oxtails, or bones, but I chose the beef shank bone. By using the shank bone, there is a lot less fat, and the beef flavour is rich, making it an excellent choice for the beef broth.
However, this Vietnamese soup isn’t complete without the various toppings and garnishes.
The very best Vietnamese pho has a rich flavourful broth served over rice noodles. But it is the toppings such as bean sprouts, snow peas, julienned carrots, bok choy, and mushrooms and garnishes like lime wedges, Thai basil and jalapeno peppers that complete this pho dish.
Because this healthy soup is served over rice noodles, this soup is also naturally gluten-free. Are you looking for gluten-free Vietnamese meals? Check out these gluten-free Vietnamese recipes!
