I think many of us probably spent a few dollars to much on Pho nights. I mean, it’s definitely one of those things you can’t say no to and for some, it doesn’t seem like it would be easy to make. Good news, it is.
So I decided to quickly put this recipe together for you so you can enjoy Pho without spending a fortune and to enjoy it whenever you want !
⁃ 1 large onion sliced in 3
⁃ 3 inch piece ginger root sliced in half.
Cook with 1 tbsp of sesame oil on high until you have a dark golden color on both sides of ginger and onions.
Bring large pot of water to a boil with
⁃ a few cloves
-2 tbsp of fish sauce
⁃ 3 full branches of cilantro
⁃ 5 star anise
⁃ 3 cinnamon sticks
⁃ 4 tbsp of organic powder broth (beef, chicken or vegetable, your choice.)
⁃ Pinch of salt
⁃ Pepper to taste
⁃ 4 full garlic cloves
⁃ Add in garlic and ginger
Bring all these ingredients to a boil then keep broth on medium-low until dinner is ready. Strain all ingredients out before serving to disregard the cinnamon sticks, cloves, anise stars, onions, garlic and cilantro branches.
*Bring back to a boil right before serving.*
