Vietnamese Chicken and Long-Grain Rice Congee

Rating: 4.5 stars 24
Congee is a much overlooked soup and a comfort food of a lot of Asian peoples. This recipe is flavorful, light, and goes down real easy when you are feeling a little out of the weather. It looks harder than it actually is. I usually just throw things together, go away, and wander into the kitchen later to see if it's done.

Vietnamese Beef Pho

Rating: 4 stars 84
This pho lemongrass soup is served with a plate full of fresh garnishes and various sauces — this allows each person to season their serving to taste. The soup is somewhat unusual because the meat is cooked in the serving bowl. The beef is sliced very thin, almost thin enough to see through; you might want to have the butcher slice it. The boiling hot broth is poured over the noodles and raw meat. The meat is quickly cooked in the hot broth while you garnish the soup.
