Take some rice noodles and soak them in a big bowl of hot tap water to soften while you prep the rest.

You'll need some beef, like a strip loin steak, partially frozen.

Heat up some beef broth in a pot and put in some anise seed, cloves, peppercorns and a cinnamon stick in a spice bag (or just strain them out later) and simmer for 20 minutes. Add in a spoonful of Pad Thai sauce (or mix together fish sauce, tamarind and sugar in roughly equal parts to make your own sauce).

While the broth is cooking very thinly slice an onion and let it soak in rice wine vinegar.

Also slice up cilantro, green onion, jalapeƱo (or use chilli flakes) and fresh sweet basil leaves. These get added as garnishes and for flavour right before serving.

Take your steak from the freezer and slice into the thinnest strips you can manage, the broth is going to cook these, so thin is a must.

Boil the softened noodles for about 4 minutes and place a serving of noodles in the bowl.

Place the thin slices of beef on top.

Remove the spice bag (or strain broth) and ladle while still boiling hot over the beef and noodles.

Garnish with fresh ingredients and the rice wine soaked onions and squeeze a lime wedge into soup.

I love this stuff. Every second corner in Calgary has a Vietnamese Noodle House. Yours sounds tasty but it sure doesn't look the same. They use the thin rice noodles.... with chicken or beef, or tripe and other unmentionables, carrots carved to roses. On the side...cilantro, bean sprouts and lime. One bowl could feed a family...but I manage quite well. :) Would love to know the calorie count.
