This dish is simply a phenomenon sweeping trendy boroughs and hipster communities around these parts. Pho ( pronounced fuh) is a traditional Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup. I work close to that Asian District of OKC, so I have had the pleasure of trying authentic Pho locally.
I thought to myself, “I should try making this.” (For the sake of calling myself a kitchen craftsmen. I should be up to the challenge, yet ready to fall on my face.) Welp, no time like the present. So, a few weeks ago, I whipped this up. Both my husband and our friend staying with us, LOVED it!
I scoured Pinterest for a basic Pho recipe to gauge my skill set. I settled on this recipe:
I will say I left out the fish sauce (because I am not a fan), star anise (could not find it) and bean sprouts (because I did not deemed them necessary to this feat.)
Here are my pictures throughout my process.
Overall, I thought this was a terrific beginner’s recipe. I am not a huge beef fan and actually allow very little of it in my diet. However, for the sake of making this properly for the first time, I made it with beef. Next time, though, I think I will venture into the world of Chicken Pho. That seems more up my alley.
