Process for making Broth
- To make the stock, add pork bones and cover with water and bring to boil for about 2-4 minutes. Empty the water along with the gunk and residue and save bones in colander. Clean bones, rinse well, and drain. Also, clean the stock pot before adding the bones back in with about 12 cups of water. Add shallot and chicken and bring to rolling boil and reduce heat.
- Clean and marinate chicken with salt, pepper and maggi's stuff about 20 - 30 minutes (depending on the cut you use and how big) and cover with saran wrap and set aside to cool. Continue to simmer the broth under low heat for about 2 hour, skimming off fat, froth, and any residual gunk from the broth. Then add a few dried shrimps, sugar, fish sauce, and salt to taste.This is the last step of making broth for one of stunning Vietnamese Noodle Recipes.
