When I'm sick(as I have been for almost two weeks now), nothing makes me feel better like a giant savory, spicy bowl of beef Phở. Pronounced "Fuh", Phở is a Vietnamese street soup. The spices and ingredients vary. You can find chicken, seafood, pork or beef but the most common it is a rice noodle soup made with beef bone broth. It's flavored with spices such as; star anise, coriander, clove, cinnamon and cardamom. Any cut of beef can be added, meatballs, tripe, round eye, brisket, etc. My favorite combo is lean brisket and tendon, YUM! When they bring your giant bowl, complete with a spoon and chopsticks, it's typically accompanied by fresh bean sprouts, jalapeños and Thai basil. I forgo the jalapeños for chili oil because I prefer the flavor. Any way you choose to prepare you Phở, you can't go wrong. Finding Phở in your area might be difficult. Luckily the Portland Metro area is thick with Vietnamese restaurants so, I'm never far from my next bowl. Net time you get a chance, I encourage you to try this exotic dish. When I'm feeling better, I plan on experimenting with the spices to try to make my own recipe for you all to make at home!
