You will need 2 whole star anise for this recipe (anise seeds may be substituted).
  1. Pour broths into a 5-quart stockpot. Add garlic, ginger, star anise, cinnamon stick, fish sauce, soy sauce and sugar substitute. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.
  2. Strain broth through a fine sieve. Discard solids and return broth to stockpot; bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  Thinly slice the beef into 6 portions of 2-3 slices for each serving.
  3. Add bok choy and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low and cook 5 minutes. Stir in frozen greens and bean sprouts. Add beef to surface of soup and push down with a slotted spoon; do not stir.
  4. Poach beef in the simmering broth 3 to 5 minutes (3 minutes for medium-rare, 4 minutes for medium, 5 minutes for medium-well).
  5. Divide beef between 6 serving bowls; ladle broth and vegetables over beef. Sprinkle each with cilantro and mint and serve.

Cooking Tip

Did you know that you can easily portion out and freeze soup to save for a busy night down the road? When ready to reheat, either microwave or heat up in a pot over the stove with a splash of water.
