Beef Pho (2008-09-17)
I did deviate from the direction a little by substituting beef stock
with 1/4 tsp chicken stock powder, which I don't think makes a big
difference in the taste.
However the deciding factors for the soup to work are 1) mandolined
onion slices and 2) coriander. Without these, the soup would lack
the depth and soul which is
essential in that authentic beef pho taste. If you don't have
onions and coriander or don't like them, go make something else for
The big bowl of noodles is indeed yum! Since we haven't had
beef pho in eons, we devoured the whole thing.
