  • 200g rice noodles
  • 200g shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 2 cups baby bok choy, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh herbs for garnish (cilantro, Thai basil, mint)
  • Lime wedges for serving
  • Optional toppings: sliced chili peppers, hoisin sauce, sriracha sauce


  1. Prepare the Rice Noodles:
    • Cook the rice noodles according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process. Set aside until ready to serve.
  2. Prepare the Broth:
    • In a large pot, heat the beef broth over medium heat until simmering. Add minced garlic, thinly sliced onion, grated ginger, fish sauce, soy sauce, and sugar to the broth. Stir to combine and allow the flavors to meld together for 10-15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Cook the Shrimp:
    • While the broth is simmering, season the shrimp with salt and pepper. In a separate skillet, heat a tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn pink and opaque. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside.
  4. Prepare the Vegetables:
    • In the same skillet used for cooking the shrimp, add another tablespoon of oil if needed. Stir-fry the julienned carrots for 2-3 minutes until they start to soften. Add the chopped baby bok choy and bean sprouts to the skillet and stir-fry for an additional 2-3 minutes until the vegetables are tender yet still crisp.
  5. Assemble the Pho:
    • Divide the cooked rice noodles among serving bowls. Arrange the cooked shrimp and stir-fried vegetables on top of the noodles.
  6. Ladle the hot beef broth over the noodles and vegetables, ensuring that each bowl is generously filled with broth.
  7. Garnish and Serve:
    • Garnish the Shrimp and Vegetable Pho with fresh herbs such as cilantro, Thai basil, and mint. Serve with lime wedges on the side for squeezing over the pho.
  8. Optional Toppings:
    • Serve the pho with optional toppings such as sliced chili peppers, hoisin sauce, and sriracha sauce for added flavor and heat.
