  • 1. Place the beef in a big sauce pan. Add enough water to cover the meat (about 2L) and bring to a boil over medium low heat until scum appears on the surface. Clear the scum off the broth.
    2. Add in all the soup ingredients except the green onions for garnishing. Add salt to taste. Adjust to low heat and simmer for 1 to 2 hours or until the beef is tender.
    3. When the meat is tender, remove from the sauce pan and allow to cool down.
    4. Meanwhile, transfer the broth to another sauce pan, leaving about 2 cups of it in the original sauce pan. The broth in the new sauce pan will be the soup. Simmer over low heat until ready to serve.
