It’s officially fall and I’ve been craving soup. Lots of soup. This Asian Beef Noodle Soup is one I made recently and it reminded me of the Vietnamese soup known as ‘pho.’ Hearty rice noodles swim in a flavorful beef broth with thin slices of beef and fresh cilantro, giving it the perfect Asian twist to a beef noodle soup…
The recipe below uses beef sirloin which is fairly easy to find at local supermarket chains. Another time, I made this with beef oxtails – a more unique cut of beef that you might be able to find or perhaps order from your butcher. I happen to enjoy oxtails and when I used it in this recipe in place of the sirloin, I found it had much more beef flavor. To use with oxtails, season about 3-4 pounds of oxtails with salt and pepper.
2 tablespoons soy sauce or gluten free tamari
2 tablespoons mirin
Plug in the IP with insert set in place.
Press MANUAL and add broth, soy sauce/tamari, mirin, ginger, and chili garlic sauce (if using) to the IP.
Add the beef to the pot and stir.
Press MANUAL and adjust the time to 2 minutes on HIGH pressure.
Once at pressure, the display will reflect 2 (the number of minutes you initially set) and will begin to countdown to 0 minutes.
Open up your IP when the pin has dropped (allow a few minutes for this to happen).
Garnish each bowl with additional fresh cilantro leaves and a drizzle of 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil. If you like things on the spicy side, sprinkle a few red pepper flakes for garnish too.
