Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 1 Tesco Finest 35 Day Salt Dry Aged Aberdeen Angus Ribeye Steak
  • Sesame oil
  • 2 packs Tesco Finest Beef Stock (450ml each)
  • 2 star anise
  • 3cm piece ginger, sliced
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Fish sauce (to taste)
  • Handful of bean sprouts
  • 300g pack of rice noodles
  • Handful of fresh herbs (coriander, mint, basil)
  • 1 red or green chili, sliced
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • Crispy fried onions (optional)
  • Lime wedges


  1. Marinate the steak: Rub the steak with sesame oil.
  2. Cook the steak: Heat a pan or griddle until hot. Sear the steak for 2-3 minutes per side, depending on your preference. Set aside to rest.
  3. Make the broth: In a saucepan, heat the beef stock with star anise and ginger. Season with sugar and fish sauce. Add bean sprouts and cook for a few minutes.
  4. Assemble the pho: Divide noodles between two bowls. Pour hot broth over the noodles. Top with sliced steak, herbs, chili, spring onions, crispy fried onions (if using), and lime wedges.


  • You can substitute the ribeye steak with another cut of beef, such as flank steak or sirloin. Just be sure to slice it thinly against the grain for tenderness.
  • No Tesco Finest ingredients nearby? Use your favorite beef broth, another type of steak, and adjust the seasonings to your taste.
  • For a vegetarian option, replace the steak with tofu or tempeh. Marinate and cook them similarly to the steak.
