Step1

First, we wash the chicken wings and pour hot water into the pan and boil it on a medium fire for around 30 minutes.

One-point Advice

It cost gas charges alot when you boil something with gas for 30 minutes, doesnt it? I often use a rice cooker to save gas. In the case of a rice cooker, we cook water (450 ml) and the chiken wings with a mode of “rice gruel” for from 45 minutes to one hour.

 

Step2

I peel the onion and I wash ginger with water and cut it to half.

Step3

I put an onion and ginger in an oven and bake it with 1,000W for approximately 30 minutes.
The taste of pho can be changed  by the quantity of the ginger.

Step4

While we wait for 30 minutes, we chop the universal stone leek and shred the part of the middle of the long leek and boil the bean sprouts.

I recommend that we sould soak the leek in water to get rid of the bitterness.

Step5

We put the cooked chicken wings, the onion, the ginger and the star anise in a pan.
Rice cooker>we put the leftover soup of cooked the chicken wings to the pan from a rice cooker and add 800 ml of hot water.  And put the chiken wings, the onion, the ginger and the star anise.

Step6

We add salt, sugar, pepper and boil them for around 30 minutes on a low heat.

Step7

We boil the noodles while boiling the soup.

One-point advice

We take the noodle out if It becomes white and move it to cold water.
You can save time if you soak noddles into water for 30 minutes.
