I was dying to try to make Pho. I love giving myself a reason to go to the Chinatown supermarket. I researched a lot of recipes and finally ended on Old Faithful. Martha Stewart. Most of the recipes were similar. Next time I make it I'm skipping boiling the meat. I don't like boiled meat plus it takes too long. It's gross too. I know it's the whole basis of the soup but I don't care.
I love the comforting spices used in Pho and it makes great leftovers.
*i ended up making this again using beef stock and it was really good. Buying a flank steak and cooking it separately, slicing it up, and placing on top was perfect.
