I’m always in the mood for a hot bowl of noodle soup! Especially in the fall and winter seasons. Of course! Pho noodles seem to be one of the most satisfying! If I am away on a long trip, by the third day, my pho craving strikes! I am Google Mapping where the closest (5 star) pho restaurant is. Or if I am feeling under the weather, I’m headed to straight my neighbourhood noodle house!

With pho, it’s really all about the broth. The noodles and tender meat definitely have their appeal but the real deal comes from the broth that is made by simmering bones and aromatics for hours and hours.

But since it’s the holiday season, we are taking a few shortcuts with this recipe to save some time, but still, make a very delicious bowl of pho! Or, if you simply just want to enjoy a bowl of turkey pho fast, this Instant Pot Turkey Pho recipe is the answer.

Although we want to enjoy a bowl of noodle soup fast, we must take the time to prepare the aromatics and garnishes. This will make or break your bowl of noodle soup.

Carefully measure your aromatics. You can prepackage your spices in resealable zippy bags for convenience too! Make a few and keep them in your spice cabinet!

Toast your aromatics in your Instant Pot (sauté mode) or fry pan without oil over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Add ginger, green onions, white onions and stir for 30 seconds, let char slightly. You will be able to smell the aroma released from the spices.

Once toasted, place the spices into nut milk bags so you can just pull it out once the soup is done!

When it comes to choosing which cut of turkey, I like to use turkey legs and thighs. You want a good amount of poultry fat. It is an essential part of any noodle soup! The fat adds complexity, flavour, and silkiness to the mouthfeel! So leave the skin on with your bone-in turkey thighs.

Pro Tip: blanch your turkey thighs and legs in a boiling pot of water to remove the impurities and blood.

Place all your ingredients in the Instant Pot: toasted aromatics, turkey legs and thighs, poultry broth and set the pressure to high for 15 minutes.

Quick-release the pressure and carefully pull the turkey out with a pair of tongs. Roughly remove the meat from the bones. If there’s some stuck to the bones that is ok. In fact, you would want some meat left on the bones for additional flavour. Put the bones back into the Instant Pot and set the pressure to high again for another 15 minutes!

When it’s finally done, let it the pressure naturally release.

While the pressure is naturally releasing, you can cook your pho noodles. Soak the rice noodles in hot water until opaque. Drain, rinse and set aside.

Strain the broth when it is done through a fine-mesh strainer/sieve over a large pot. If you want a super clear broth, line the strainer with muslin. Discard the solids. If you find your broth cooled, reheat the broth on your stovetop on high heat for 30-60 seconds.

Season with fish sauce and assemble your bowl turkey pho noodle soup. Arrange the turkey on top of the noodles, garnish with finely chopped green onions, cilantro, basil, and a squeeze of lime to taste.

Enjoy with any extras as desired!
