    ngibsonn's Note:

    This soup is served with a plate full of fresh garnishes as well as various sauces. This allows each person to season their serving to taste. The soup is somewhat unusual, because the meat is cooked in the bowl. The beef is sliced very thin, almost thin enough to see through. You might want to have the butcher slice it for you. The boiling hot broth is poured over the noodles and raw meat. The meat is quickly cooked in the hot broth in the time it takes to garnish the soup. From

      This was outstanding! My DH travels to Hanoi often and said this was spot on. I also used anise seeds in a cheesecloth in the broth. We like it really brothy so I added a can of beef connsomme as well. I put everything for broth in a crockpot on low and by dinner it was nothing more than soak noodles and chop garnishes. Soooo good!

      Absolutely delicious! I've been craving pho ever since a girlfriend of my took me out for it last week. There aren't any Vietnamese restaurants close by, so I tried this and my craving has been satisfied. THANK YOU!!

      Great recipe. I tried Pho for the first time a long time ago in California. For some reason I ended up with tripe in it. That was probably because I didn't know what I was ordering. I didn't like it. Fortunately a Vietnamese restaurant opened in the small city where I live. Wife and I decided to try the beef pho. It was great. The restaurant unfortunately went out of business. Found this recipe and tried it. I used tenderloin and followed the directions as shown. I think it came out better than at the restaurant where we liked it. Thanks for posting it.
