Bún bò Huế (pronounced [ɓun˧˥ ɓɔ˧˩ hwe˧˥]) or bún bò is a popular Vietnamese soup containing rice vermicelli (bún) and beef (bò). Huế is a city in central Vietnam associated with the cooking style of the former royal court. The dish is greatly admired for its balance of spicy, sour, salty and sweet flavors and the predominant flavor is that of lemon grass. Compared to phở or bún riêu, the noodles are thicker and more cylindrical.
Bún bò originated in Huế, a former capital of Vietnam. Outside the city of Huế and some parts of Central Vietnam, it is called bún bò Huế to denote its origin. Within Huế and surrounding cities, it is known simply as bún bò. The broth is prepared by simmering beef bones and beef shank with lemongrass and then seasoned with fermented shrimp sauce and sugar for taste. Spicy chili oil is added later during the cooking process.
Bún bò usually includes thin slices of marinated and boiled beef shank, chunks of oxtail, and pig’s knuckles. It can also include cubes of congealed pig blood, which has a color between dark brown and maroon, and a texture resembling firm tofu.
Bún bò is commonly served with lime wedges, cilantro sprigs, diced green onions, raw sliced onions, chili sauce, thinly sliced banana blossom, red cabbage, mint, basil, perilla, persicaria odorata or Vietnamese coriander (rau răm), saw tooth herb (ngò gai) and sometimes mung bean sprouts. Thinly sliced purple cabbage is acceptable substitute when banana blossoms are not available. Purple cabbage most resembles banana blossom in texture, though not in taste. Fish sauce and shrimp sauce is added to the soup according to taste. Ingredients might be varied by regions due to their availability.

2. How to cook Vietnamese Bun bo Hue
– Step 1: Place the beef/pork bones and the pork trotters in a stockpot filled with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook for 5-10 minutes until the impurities rise to the top. Dump out the whole pot, rinse the bones well to wash off the scum. Wash the pot clean.
– Step 2: Return the bones and pork trotters to the pot and fill with 5 liters water. Also add the beef shank.
– Step 3: Smash the lemongrass with a pestle or a knife handle to release the fragrance. Tie them up and add to the stockpot. Also add 1 peeled yellow onion, 1 tbsp salt, 1 tbsp sugar. Bring to a boil over high heat, then lower to medium and simmer uncovered for 1 hour.
– Occasionally skim off the scum. When the beef shrank and pork trotter is cooked, remove the meat and soak in a bowl of cold water for 5 minutes to prevent it from turning dark.
– Then drain, let cool and slice thinly into bite-sized pieces. Meanwhile continue to simmer the bones for 1-2 more hours. If you cook the stock more than 2 hours, add the bruised lemongrass only at the last hour.
– Step 4: To make the Saté, heat vegetable oil in a pan, sautee minced lemongrass, garlic and shallot until fragrant and slightly golden. Then take off the heat.
– Add chili powder, fish sauce, sugar, beef broth, stir well and simmer under low heat for 5 mins until smooth. Add half of this saté to the stockpot. Save the rest in a small bowl for serving later.
– Step 5: Cook the rice vermicelli following package instructions. Then rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process and remove the outside starch. Then rinse again under hot water. This helps the noodles to get dried faster (hot water evaporates quicker) and become more fluffy (rather than stick to each other and turn lumpy).
– Step 6: Dissolve Vietnamese fermented shrimp paste (mam ruoc Hue) in 1 cup of cold water. Let it sit for 10 minutes to settle the dregs. Fill a saucepan with 2 cups of water, add the shrimp paste liquid (discard the dregs at the bottom). Bring to boil, then remove from the heat and let it sit for 15 mins, undisturbed, to settle the dregs again.
– Then extract the clear broth on top and add to the simmering stockpot. Discard the dregs. Adjust the flavor of the broth to your taste with salt, fish sauce and chicken/pork stock.
– Step 7: To assemble the dish, place a handful of the rice vermicelli in a serving bowl. Top with the sliced beef and pork. Also add boiled blood cubes (Huyet), Vietnamese shrimp patties (Cha Hue) or Vietnamese ham (Cha Lua) if available.
– Ladle the broth over the noodles and garmish with the chopped spring onion, cilantro and paper-thin sliced onion. Serve with extra sate and the fresh vegetable platter.
