    Bursting with flavour, this main-course beef soup is packed with vegetables and noodles. If you can't get fresh lime leaves easily, they are available in jars at some supermarkets. You can eat the noodles, beef and vegetables with chopsticks, then enjoy the soup with a spoon.

    Punchy flavours and aromatic ingredients transform a light broth into an exotic dish that makes a substantial starter or a light meal. The ingredients are not fried before being simmered – making this a great low-fat soup – so select prime-quality lean steak which tastes excellent when poached.

    Hand-pulled noodles are a tradition from Lanzhou in northwest China. Called Lamian, the 2 to 3 metre-long noodles are made simply with water, flour and patience! Served with a delicate beef broth, this is a truly special Chinese regional dish.

    The secret to Vietnamese noodle soup (pho) is all in the stock. Nothing makes a better stock than a pressure cooker, such as the Instant Pot®. Fairly quickly, a pressure cooker brings together all the flavours of meat bones and toasted spices to make a delicious, savoury stock. To serve, put small bowls containing thinly sliced onion, beansprouts, limes and Thai basil on the table. Give each guest a bowl of pho and let them top the soup as they wish.
