Bok Choy Beef Soup

Bok Choy Beef Soup

BakingBecca 0

"A spicy-warm soup with light flavorings. As is, I believe it is mildly hot, depending on the jalapenos' quality. Consider adding chayote, more lime, beef broth, tomatoes, or hotter peppers. Very versatile recipe. I recommend serving this soup over or with rice."

This came out great! Super easy too. This recipe satisfied my pho craving even though it's not your traditional beef noodle soup. I added soba noodles and upped the chicken broth because I like ...

Super good broth, we didnt have chili/garlic sauce but let everyone personalize at the end with the typical rooster chili sauce. Served over Soba noodles and it was a great hit.

This was a wonderful soup! I used two heads of bok choy since they were small.

Easy and enjoyable. It was a little hot for us. I will experiment with reducing the siracha.

Great recipe! I also added on the side fresh sourdough bread. I served mine on top of rice, which made the spiciness more mild. I'll try those noodles next time!

This had a lovely taste and I will definately make it again. 1/2 tsp of pepper was plenty for taste - it even smelt peppery - rather than 1 tsp. I also reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp to suit my ...

Awesome! This broth is fantastic. I skipped the jalapeno peppers and only used half the rooster sauce. Served over a bowl of steaming rice.
