I have had Pho before so I was excited to make this but it just did not turn out well. The flavors just did not marry well at all.

the only thing I changed was I made my own beef broth I let it cook in my crock pot for 24 hours, it was delicious. it was so good im making more for this cold weekend ...

Now what the heck is 1 ginger... and 1 bean sprout? Haha. Still better than the other pho recipes on here. Mine turned out lacking that restaurant flavor though

I was intimidated at first but it was actually pretty easy, the only thing I did different was add the thin sliced beef to the broth and let it cook there because I didn’t trust it to cook in the bowl, it was delicious!!! Will make again definitely:)

Wow this recipe turned out great! I will definitely make it again this week.

Great! Still good if you water down the broth a bit to make more.

I thought this was delicious and easy to make. I doubled this fish sauce and sugar. I also added a bit more clove and star anise. So delicious!

So good. Didn't have star anise but did have ground fennel which I guess is the same thing lol. Still, everyone be liked it.

Excellent recipe. Easy and quick to make. I make this several times a month for the family. I need to get ahead of things a bit by making the broth ahead of time, then it would be really quick!
