I love to serve Thai soup with a big, steaming bowl of jasmine rice.

Just transfer some of the rice into the soup bowl one bite at a time, and use a large spoon to scoop up the grains along with the meat, broth, and vegetables.

  1. I felt like a huge success after making this! Like, I finally mastered another cuisine and it tasted like it would in a restaurant!

    I really do love everything that went into this soup – it was fast, fun, I could swim in fish sauce, I just love it all. My husband and I sat down together to eat (which is RARE) this soup and the Chimichurri Steak Sandwiches and it all looked so good together and this soup was just awesome!!

    I really want to make this again, but first, I need to make all of your other recipes because I am loving every single one I have tried! Can’t wait to start searching for what to try today!

    Thanks so much for this recipe, have a great weekend! It’s pretty cold here in Missouri and I will be on the soccer fields all weekend watching my kids’ games – at least I get to come home to this soup! 🙂

    1. Awesome, Denise! I love getting that feeling 🙂 Although, it makes it hard to pay for restaurant food once you’re able to make it at home 🙂

  2. We had this for dinner tonight and it was amazing. I minced up beef stew meat, since I had it on hand and simmered it a bit longer before adding the veggies so it’d get tender.

    Thank you!

  3. I am excited to try this soup! By the way, your photos are so beautiful, it’s hard to select which one to pin on Pinterest. 😉
