Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 6 hours
Total Time 6 hours 20 minutes


  • 12 cups beef stock (3 litres)
  • 4 green shallots, sliced
  • 3cm piece ginger, sliced
  • 4 star anise
  • 2 sticks cinnamon
  • 12 peppercorns
  • 12 coriander seeds
  • 2 red chillies, sliced
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp grated palm sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 500g sliced beef
  • 200g rice noodles
  • 2 cups bean sprouts


  • Put stock, shallots, ginger, star anise, peppercorns, cinnamon, coriander seeds and chillies in slow cooker together and cook on low for about 5 hours; or a large pot over a medium heat, bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, for about 45 minutes. If using a pot to make the stock I add some stock to the slow cooker and turn it on low while the stock simmers in the pot so that I am not adding the stock to a cold slow cooker when getting to that step.
  • Strain the stock mixture through a sieve and back in to the slow cooker. Add fish sauce, sugar, lime juice and meat to the slow cooker
  • I leave it on low/auto for 4-6 hours and add the noodles and bean sprouts with about an hour to go.
