  1. In a large pot, combine the chicken broth, water, onion, ginger, garlic, black peppercorns, and fish sauce. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to let it simmer for about 20-30 minutes. Season with salt to taste. Strain the broth and discard the solids.

  6. Pour the strained broth back into the pot and bring it to a simmer. Season the broth with soy sauce and sesame oil to taste.
