It does not get much more easy than this - the soup is very versatile and you could almost add whatever has your fancy or is in your fridge, but still not quite like Pho - but good.
We really loved this! I think it is as close to Pho as I'll be able to get at home. I made some minor changes - added 2 small, thinly sliced leaks, and didn't use cilantro (just because the cilantro at the market was old and wilty). I thought that the broth seemed a little too chickeny flavored - it was sort of overpowering the ginger - so I added some water (about a cup or so) and that really made it good. At the end, I added some napa cabbage. We also topped it with some sambal oelek and plum sauce. Loved the flavor, but I think it would be even better if I let it sit overnight, so I'm thinking that next time (probably later this week) I'll do a double or triple batch of the broth, then freeze half of it and other half in the fridge overnight. We'll definitely be making this a lot in the future! Thank you for posting!
I guess I'm the odd man out. I enjoyed the soup but next time will probably try something different. For me, this wasn't superlative. Since I love, love, love, pho I'll keep looking.
Loved it!!! This is soooooooo good!!!!
This recipe is DELISH! What a treat to have pho at home!
Great recipe. I'm making this once a week now. I have never had such a success with a recipe off this site before. I love it and it's so easy. THANK YOU!
Adding the fresh ingredients at the end is what makes the soup so flavorful. Unfortunately the fish sauce really stinks up the house to the point of making my children sick. I'll have to cook this with a fan in front of a open window next time. Otherwise its a very complex tasting soup.
This is a recipe my wife and I keep coming back to. Great flavor, easy to make.
Pretty Tasty! I added an extra teaspoon of ginger and some sliced mushrooms. I def recommend this. Its a refreshing and clean tasting soup. The cilantro really hits the spot in it.
Excellent soup. Even my DH loved it and he had eaten plenty of it when he was flying helicopters during the war!
