Instant Phố Bò

Super quick Phố Bò a Vietnamese beef noodle soup

Sometimes time just flies and you do not have time to make dinner or you just do not feel like making anything. For occasions like these I always have a small stash of different kind of instant noodles in my cupboard. I had some thinly sliced roast beef in the fridge that I was going to use for sandwiches, red onion, some fresh coriander, fresh bean sprouts and chili. So my choise was easy I as it happened that I had some instant Phố Bò.

I could have saved my self a little dishwashing and used the paper containers the noodles came in, but since it is the dishwasher which has to do the work I thought proper bowls was best, and sitting  arround the table we would get the feel we wnjoyed a proper made meal.

For this 5 minute meal I used:

Instant Phố Bò
A few slices of red onion
Thinly slice roast beef
Fresh bean sprouts
Fresh coriander
A few slices of chili

Follow the instructions for the instant noodles and add some red onions before you add the water.

Arrange a plate with the rest of the ingredients and serve everything together at the table so that each and everyone get to add as much of the ingredients as they want.

It took a maximum of 5 minutes to prepare and make and a little bit longer to enjoy before we all headed out the door for other activities.

Fried rice, making use of leftovers

Fried rice is something I make if I have a lot of leftover rice, sometimes I make a little extra on purpose just so I can make this dish. This is a simple and easy dish to make, you use what you got in the fridge. This took me less than 1 minutes to make.
This is what I used for 4 people.
4 egg scrambled
1/2 chopped onion
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 tablespoon cooking oil for frying (not olive)
1 liter boiled rice
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1.5 dl chopped prawns / shrimp
1.5 dl carrots cut into cubes
1 cup edamame/peas
Ham leftovers
Salt and pepper
Sliced scallions for garnish
Make the scrambled eggs and set aside.
 –
Fry the onions and garlic in a pan with oil on high heat.
When the onion is translucent and starting to get burnt edges, add the rice and fry and add the sesame oil.
When the rice is nicely fried add the rest of the ingredients and fry until everything is cooked through, salt and pepper to taste.

Start by cooking rice.

Then prepare your ingredients.

On high heat saute onions and garlic and when the onions are glossy add mushroom and beans stir fry a bit more. Put the vegetables in a bowl or a plate.

Fry the beef on high heat quickly and add the vegetables, and the rest of the ingredients.

By now the rice should be done, eat and enjoy:)

Eat this with stir fried vegetables, a salad or some other side dish.

I had some bean sprouts with a little sesame oil and salt and kimchi.
