Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup with Ginger

In Vietnam, pho, as this rice-noodle soup is known, is often enjoyed for breakfast. Nutritionists recommend incorporating red meat into one's diet just as it's used here -- in small portions and as a complement to other foods. The soup also includes bean sprouts and a handful of fresh herbs.

    I sub shank for oxtail, and I found whole star anise in a small cello package under the Badia brand, which in my store, has it's own little spices section near the produce. I love this soup, but use sirloin sliced VERY thinly, as I personally find the round to be tougher and have less flavor.
