For the broth:

  1. Heat sesame oil in a medium soup pot. Add the bean paste, garlic, ginger, and lime peel and saute for one minute or until fragrant.
  2. Add the fish sauce, beef stock, and habanero (if using.)
  3. Simmer for at least 30 minutes, preferably longer for the best flavor to develop.
  4. Strain out the bits so only the broth remains. Add the sugar substitute and lime juice to the broth. Taste and adjust to your preference for sweet and salty.

To make the soup:

  1. Divide the noodles, cabbage, beef, mushrooms, cilantro, scallions and chili pepper slices between four large soup bowls.
  2. Bring the broth to a boil and pour (approximately 1.5 cups per bowl) over the soup ingredients. Let sit for 5 minutes before eating.

Alternate soup method:

  1. Add the noodles, cabbage and mushrooms to the boiling broth and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Add the beef and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with cilantro, scallions, chilis and fresh lime.
