For the Stock

  • 1L of Beef Stock
  • 1x 5cm pieces of ginger-cut in half (I cut it vertically into 3 strips for maximum flavour)

  • 2x cloves of garlic-roughly chopped
  • 3x Star Anise
  • 2x cinnamon quills-lightly crushed
  • 2 tblsp of caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup of Fish Sauce
  • 4 Cups (1L) of water
  • Juice of half a fresh lime
  • Juice of half a fresh lemon

For the Bowl

  • 800g Beef Fillet-thinly sliced (as thin as possible)
  • 375g Rice noodles
  • Bean shoots
  • Fresh herbs (coriander, mint, basil ect must be fresh)
  • Red Onion-thinly sliced (for toppings)


For the Broth

  • Place beef stock, water, star anise, cinnamon quills, brown onion slices, fish sauce, caster sugar and ginger into the Slow Cooker.
  • Cook on low for 8-10 hours (as long as possible)
  • Cook rice noodles seperatly as per packet instructions

For the Bowl

  • Divide up cooked noodles into bowls
  • Top with thinly sliced raw beef
  • Add fresh herbs, red onion and bean shoots
  • Ladle hot stock over noodles and meat (very important that the stock is hot as it needs to cook the meat)
  • Add chilli and add a squeeze of lime and lemon juice to your bowl (to taste)
  • Enjoy 😀
  • This is a very hearty recipe that I found on Taste.Com and have adapted for my slow cooker.
  • I used a large 6L cooker as I doubled the recipe.
