Toast your ginger and onions in the oven on broil until the onions are sweaty everything is nicely charred.
Peel the ginger and onions and set aside until you’re ready to start your broth.
Toast the coriander seeds, cloves, and star anise in a dry pan on low heat until they are aromatic, about 2-3 minutes.
Tie the spices up in cheesecloth for easy removal from your soup.
Put your oxtail pieces in a large pot with cold water and bring to a hard boil for 5-10 minutes to force the scum and impurities out.
Drain, rinse the oxtails and wash your pot.
Fill your clean pot with about 5 quarts of water and add the oxtail, ginger, onions, spice packet, cinnamon stick, carrots, and daikon.
Bring to a boil and lower to a very gentle simmer. Simmer for 4 hours; reducing it will intensify the flavour.
Take out the oxtails and set aside. Remove everything else from the stock and discard.
Strain the stock into a new clean pot and cool. Once cool, put in the fridge overnight.
Remove the meat from the oxtails and discard the bones. Shred the meat, cover and put in the fridge for the next day.
The next day a large amount of fat will have coagulated on the top of your stock. Skim and discard.
Gently heat the stock up and season with fish sauce and sugar. Add the sugar and fish sauce in increments until you’re happy with the flavour.
Bring the stock to a roiling boil.
Prepare your noodles according to the package, strain and place in a large bowl.
Add a generous amount of oxtail meat (the stock will heat the meat up), top with broth, and garnishes.
