It’s another cold drizzly day at the RGB. That’s code-word for soup. Today’s winner: beef pho (fuh).
I’ve been craving pho all week (this always happens when I overindulge on American dairy and sweets), so we raided the local 99 Ranch Market yesterday to make a pot full.
While I’m waiting for my mom to give me her secret recipe, I’m working with Andrea Nguyen’s version from my handy-dandy go-to Vietnamese recipe book.
Positives: Very good and always hits the spot.
Other Notes: A very good clean broth; not at all like Pho 54’s pho tai nam, which I also crave from time to time for it’s greasy broth and fatty meats. (Don’t tell my parents, they’d shudder.)
Hope you’re staying warm in the late-December chill!
Some additional ingredient notes to my beef pho:
Premium nuoc mam:
Fresh rice noodles:
Tribute to Mom – always add some scallion bulbs to each dish:
Any tips on how to make the greasy Pho 54 version?
