Pho has become my newest addiction. I love soup and can pretty much eat it any day for any meal, but pho has become somewhat an obsession of mine. Pho, pronounced ‘fa-uh,’ is a traditional Vietnamese soup made broth, fish sauce, noodles, thinly sliced meat, and a few spices and herbs. It is yummy! It’s even yummier when it’s homemade.
Server this with noodles and a protein. Add both to a deep bowl and cover with broth. Top with bean sprouts, cilantro, basil and add one slice of the pepper to the bowl.
- 1 medium onion (minced)
- Garlic (as much as you want- minced)
- 2 Tsp Fish Sauce
- Homemade Bone Broth (poultry, beef, fish- whatever you have on hand)
- A mixture of spices (cardamon, ginger, fennel seeds, cinnamon, anise)
- Thinly Sliced Beef or Chicken
- Bean Sprouts (optional)
- 1-2 Jalepeño Peppers
- Sauté onions an garlic until onions are clear.
- Add fish sauce and broth.
- Bring the bone broth to a boil and add spices to a spice bag or just add them to the post and remember to strain that broth before serving.
- Bring broth to a low simmer.
- While broth is cooking, slice meat and prepare rice noodles (blanch in boiling water for about 4-5 minutes). If you want to keep this recipe Paleo, use thinly spiraled zucchini noodles.
- Wash and slice Jalepeños, cilantro, basil, and lime and place on a serving dish with bean sprouts.
- Stain bone broth if needed.
