In a large pot, boil 7 cups of water. In another pot, boil the beef fillet with water.
Let the water boil with the meat for 5 minutes and using a spoon transfer the meat from the first pot to the second.
Allow the water to boil in the first pot and constantly wipe the surface of grease or residues from the meat.
Reduce to low heat; add the ginger, the onion, and the sugar. Boil for approximately 40 more minutes until the meat is very tender.
When the broth takes 1 hour and a half of cooking in a bag of spices (or a cheesecloth) put the anise stars and the clove and infuse the broth for 20 minutes. Remove the anise stars and the onion from the broth. Add salt and let warm.
Put 3 cups of water to boil and place the vermicelli inside for 10 minutes or until they are soft.
Serve the soup in large soup bowls by first putting the vermicelli and pouring 2-3 cups of the meat broth over it with some pieces of fillet.

At the time of serving, accompany the glass refractory table with the wheat germ, herbs, chili and lemon to season the soup.
