Serves 6
In Vietnam, a bowl of this noodle soup—or one of its variations—is often served for breakfast.
1pound very lean sirloin of beef, trimmed of visible fat
1 1/4pound Chinese or Vietnamese rice noodles(banh pho)
3cups Homemade Beef Stock
3tablespoons Asian fish sauce (nam pla)
1 1/3cups fresh bean sprouts
 optional accompaniments
1small onion, peeled and very thinly sliced
4scallions, trimmed and very thinly sliced
2small Thai chile pepper or 1 small jalapeñ, very thinly sliced crosswise
1/3cup fresh cilantro leaves or Thai basil, coarsely chopped
Asian hot-chile sauce
 1.   Wrap beef in plastic wrap, and place in the freezer for about 1 hour.
 2.   Meanwhile, fill a large bowl with cold water; add rice noodles. Let soak until soft, about 30 minutes. Drain; set aside.
 3.   Combine beef stock, 1 1/2 cups water, and fish sauce in a large saucepan, and set over medium-high heat.
 4.   Remove beef from freezer. Using a mandoline or a very sharp knife, slice beef into very thin (1/8 inch) strips.
 5.   Divide noodles among six serving bowls, and arrange strips of meat over them. Raise heat under stock, and bring to a boil. Pour boiling stock over meat and noodles, pushing beef into hot liquid so that it cooks. Arrange bean sprouts and other accompaniments over beef and noodles; serve immediately with Asian chile sauce, if desired.
