INSTRUCTIONS

FOR THE BROTH: Blanch the ox tail bones and beef shanks for 20 min. Drain the water out. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the chicken wings, onions, garlic, and ginger on one baking sheet. Place the drained oxtail and beef shanks on another baking sheet. Roast for 40min-60min occasionally flipping the meat and veggies so they don’t burn. While the bones and veggies are roasting, toast all the spices on low heat for 5 minutes, tossing occasionally. Transfer the spices to a cheesecloth and make a spice pouch (this will make draining the broth easier). Transfer roasted bones and veggies to the large stockpot. (make sure it’s clean) Add in the spice pouch and 12-14 cups of water. Make sure the water covers the bones. Add in the fish sauce, salt and sweetener. Simmer the broth for 9 hours. (or at least 2, but the broth will not be as flavorful). Drain the broth through a fine-mesh strainer (do not throw away the meat, it’s delish and so nutritious).

TO SERVE

Slice the steak razor thin. Pour broth into a bowl and top with RAW steak (the broth should be hot enough to cook the steak).  Add in the wonder noodles (prepare based on package instructions). Garnish with bean sprouts, jalapenos, cilantro, scallions, basil, mint, and lime. Top with hot sauce if desired. Serve immediately.
