How to make Bun Bo Hue
A bowl of Hue beef noodle soup will include noodles, beef, pork blood, crab cakes, and broth. Vermicelli is made from rice flour mixed with filtered flour in a certain ratio to have a moderate toughness. Choose beef encrusted corn or bright red corn, and light yellow beef fat for beef. Crab cakes are made from bricks and pureed crab meat with fat, natural flesh, and an eye-catching yellow-orange color.
Chefs frequently use beef bones that have been simmered for several hours to make Bun Bo broth. The broth tastes rich and sweet. In addition, people also add a little fish/shrimp sauce and lemongrass to the broth to create an attractive aroma.
