10whole cardamom podslightly crushed (don't lose the black seeds!)
about 9 ounces dry ricewheat, or buckwheat Asian noodles
3/4poundsirloin steakor any steak you like
sliced green onions
hard cooked egg
red pearl onion
fresh cilantro leaves
sesame oiljust a few drops!
chili garlic saucelike Sriracha
Lightly coat a skillet with olive oil and heat over medium high heat. Halve the onion and place, cut side down, in the pan and cook for a few minutes until golden brown.
Pour the Swanson Beef Cooking Stock into your slow cooker. Add all the rest of the broth ingredients. Set the cooker to low and let cook anywhere from 6-10 hours, depending on what is convenient for you. When the broth is done, strain it and discard the solids.
Put the steak in the freezer for 30 minutes, then remove and slice as thinly as you can. Wrap and refrigerate until needed.
Make sure your toppings are prepped.
Once the broth is done, cook your noodles according to the package directions. Divide them into individual bowls. Divide the steak among the bowls, and then pour the steaming hot broth over the meat and into the bowls. The heat of the broth will cook the meat. If you prefer you can cook the steak ahead of time.
Immediately arrange the toppings on the bowls, and serve.
