What i made this morning: Vietnamese Pho

Had a hankering for a good bowl of hot steaming pho noodles, so i parboiled some beef bones & threw in a couple chunks of brisket (grub for the hubby) to flavor the broth. Then i washed the bones &brisket, put them in a 7-quart crockpot along with aromatics &spice seasonings, &let simmer on high for about 15 hours in time for dinner. How do yall make your pho broth& for how long do you let it simmer?

Pho is one dish i can have any time of the day, especially when i'm under the weather. Very comforting, satisfyingly good & filling.

2. Anything in a crockpot is simple. I just let it sit there & check it later in the day.

Slow cookers are a life saver for me. 1 pot will last several days & saves me alot of time in the kitchen.

3. Omigosh that sounds awesome

I use Mama noodles instant pho and spruce it up with thin sliced raw beef and jalapeños and bean sprouts and basil and lime slices and optional siracha, but I really should try making the real deal some day.

We do have an amazing pho place nearby but it would be great to have a huge batch on hand. I could eat it every day.

4. When i'm home i'll post some slow cooker pho recipes for u

Very simple yet takes a bit of tweaking to get the complex flavoring just right. I love it given ots a combo of fresh herbs, sprouts,noodles & intensely flavorful broth. The house smells amazingly good, esp'ly during the cold season. A big creockpotw feed a family of 4 for several meals & its perfect when u have guests. Make it beforehand, remove all the bones &solids, put it in the fridge overnight & remove the fat layer on top when ur ready to eat.

6. OK here is recipe link

http://wanderingchopsticks.blogspot.com/2009/12/crock-pot-pho-bo-vietnamese-beef-noodle.html

This lady's recipe is quite authentic. But instead of having to combine all those separate aromatics, i use this all-in-one neat little cheese paper pouch of seasonings that you can just conveniently throw into the soup pot:

Bon appetit & let me know how it turns out next time you make it. you can easily get all the ingredients (fresh herbs, sprouts, noodle sticks, beef bones or oxtail, brisket meat, etc.) at an asian grocery store. Most larger chain grocery stores also have them.

9. Love it.

Have tried to make it many times, and I just can’t get it right. This is a dish that is best left to the professionals.
