There’s two things you should know about Pho. Firstly, it’s actually pronounced as “fuh” instead of the commonly mispronounced “faux”. Secondly, a good bowl of authentic Vietnamese Pho typically takes hours upon hours to make. Here’s an easy-peasy way to make one 🙂

Servings 3
Ingredients

  • 1 litre beef bone broth
  • Flat rice noodles for 3 pax
  • One large white onion
  • 2 small old gingers
  • One stick of cinnamon
  • 3-4 star anise
  • 1 tbsp of cloves
  • 250 g of thinly sliced beef brisket / flank
  • 3 tbsp of fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp of yellow rock sugar

Garnishes:

  • Thai basil
  • Spearmint
  • Raw bean sprouts
  • Lime wedges


Instructions
Halve the white onion and gingers. Place them on an ungreased tray in the topmost rack of the oven to broil at 220 degrees celsius for 15-20 minutes or until you see the outer layer beginning to turn charred and black.

Soak noodles in water for 20-30 minutes until soft and bendable. Boil for 10 minutes till it reaches your desired consistency.

Pour stock into a stockpot. Bring to a boil then simmer it for 40 minutes. Remove any scum that floats to the top.

Prepare thinly sliced beef slices

Add fish sauce

Place garnish and enjoy.
