Step 1

First, 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.

Step 2

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

Step 3

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.

Step 4

While waiting 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 you should soak the leek in water to get rid of the bitterness.
