Hu Tieu My Tho recipe

A Vietnamese noodle soup with tapioca noodles, seafood, and a variety of herbs in a pork broth.

Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 50 minutes


  • 3 lb pork pork shoulder or pork chops
  • 2 yellow onions
  • ¼ cup dried shrimp
  • 1 daikon cut into large pieces
  • 2 cans chicken broth 14.5 oz
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 14 oz tapioca noodles
  • ½ lb shrimp
  • ¼ lb squid
  • ¼ lb octopus
  • ½ lb fish balls
  • ½ lb imitation crab
  • ¼ cup bean sprouts
  • ¼ cup chives
  • ¼ cup cilantro minced
  • ¼ cup green onions minced
  • 2 boiled eggs
  • ¼ cup fried shallots


  1. Soak the dried shrimp in water for ten minutes. Place aside.
  2. After that, make the broth! Cover the pork in a large soup pot with water until it just covers the pork. Bring to a boil and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes. Take the pan off the heat.
  3. Pour the water over the pork and place it on a plate. Rinse the pot and return the pork to it. Fill the pan halfway with fresh water, just enough to cover the pork. Combine the onions, dried shrimp, and daikon in a mixing bowl. Bring to a boil and reduce to a low heat for 2 hours.
  4. While the broth is cooking, prepare your tapioca noodles and toppings. The cilantro and green onions should be minced. Boil the eggs. Set everything aside.
  5. Add the chicken broth, salt, and sugar after 2 hours. Taste the broth for seasoning and season with more salt if necessary.
  6. At this point, the broth should be finished. The final step is to cook your seafood toppings, which should include shrimp, squid, octopus, fish balls, and imitation crab. Bring the broth to a boil over high heat. Scoop spoonfuls of each topping and hold them under the boiling broth with a ladle or any large spoon until they are cooked through. Set them aside in a bowl once they've finished cooking. Repeat until all of your seafood is cooked. Because we don't want the toppings to overcook, we don't leave them in the broth.
  7. You can now make your noodle bowls! In a bowl, combine some of the tapioca noodles. Add the cooked seafood, bean sprouts, chives, cilantro, green onions, boiled eggs, and fried shallots to the top.
