OT- Taiwanese-style Beef Noodle Soup

Had a wagyu brisket point taking up space in the freezer, and wanted to do something different with it. So, here it goes. 



Trimmed as much fat as I could. Ended up with a flattish piece of point , and 2 flattish pieces of the flat. Rolled ‘em, and tied them up into roast-looking pieces. Seasoned one with Oakridge BBQ Black Ops, and the other with DP Peking. Then promptly forgot which one I had seasoned with what =)

Went into the dishwasher for most of the morning. Post oak, mesquite, hickory, a piece of pecan, or two. Some time in the afternoon, pulled both pieces off, 



Started building the broth. Sesame oil, ginger, garlic, tomatoes, lemongrass, smoked turkey broth. Cumin, coriander, cinnamon, fennel seeds, star anise, bay leaves, sichuan peppercorns. Beef tendon, for that unctuous mouthfeel. Simmered for a few hours. It's been a relatively lazy day. 





In a bowl with homemade haam choy, homemade pickled daikon, and a soft egg. 


I guess, it turned out more like a bowl of ramen. Who cares… it was farkin’ delicious!!

    Ashish, do you normally serve the tendon with the dish, or just use it in the broth and remove it?  My favorite phò restaurant had a couple versions with tendon, but I don't care for the texture/chew and can't notice a taste when I do chew it (I avoid it now).

    Thanks for the kind words, folks.

    @Botch - caliqueen doesn't care for those chewy bits, so I reserved them for myself :) They were very super tender, after simmering for a few hours. 

    But, yes, one could very well remove them for serving. Their main purpose is to allow for their rendered collagen to lend body to the broth.

    Here's the recipe I mainly followed:
    https://thewoksoflife.com/taiwanese-beef-noodle-soup-instant-pot/

    I made the broth in a dutch oven. caliqueen thought the star anise was a bit much, so I'd use half next time. I also added dried orange peel, and black cardamom, but the recipe in the link doesn't call for that. 

    You could make the broth, and put this together with leftover protein. Its good winter comfort food :)

    The broth is pretty rich, so the pickled daikon is well worth the effort. It'll last for months in the fridge.

    Are you questioning my ability to determine what half of "that seems about right" is??

    Of course, it would be "that looks like half of what seems about right".
