Dear Project Foodie Users,

Sadly and with a heavy heart, I have decided to shut down Project Foodie on December 28th, 2015.

The past 9 years have been a wonderful journey — I met many amazing people, learned an incredible amount and had a great time helping food lovers (including myself) keep track of recipes.

I hope that you too have enjoyed Project Foodie and the fruits of my labor, and that of the various people who helped me over the years with Project Foodie.

For those of you who would like the details of recipes in your recipe box please reach out to me ( This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it )

Recipe from Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking by Cybele Pascal (Ten Speed Press, 2012)

serves 4

  • 3 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 3 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (3-inch) piece ginger, skin on, sliced into thin rounds
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder
  • Salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 8 ounces 1/8- to 1/4-inch-wide rice noodles
  • 3 green onions, white and green parts, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped basil
  • 12 ounces center-cut beef tenderloin, halved and very thinly sliced crosswise (or use leftover steak, very thinly sliced into bite-size pieces)
  • 1 cup mung bean sprouts
  • 1 lime, cut into 8 wedges
  • 2 to 4 Thai or serrano chiles, or use chile paste or chile sauce, like Sriracha

ImageIn a large pot over medium-high heat, combine the beef broth, chicken broth, ginger, garlic, shallot, and five-spice powder. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer over medium-low-heat. Add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and the sugar, lime juice, lemon juice, and mirin. Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil, and cook the noodles according to the instructions on the package. Drain and rinse the noodles and divide them evenly among 4 bowls. Divide the green onions and herbs evenly among the bowls. Top with thinly sliced steak.

Strain the broth through a strainer or fine-mesh sieve. Pour the broth, still boiling hot, over the steak, about 11/2 cups per bowl. The hot broth will cook the thinly sliced steak. Top with the bean sprouts, a couple of wedges of lime, and chiles according to your heat preference. Sprinkle with salt.
