Vietnamese Pho Recipe
Let’s welcome a famous dish from Vietnam! Pho is a distinctive type of noodle soup. Most of the time, this dish is considered the symbol of Vietnamese cuisine.
Because of its popularity, you can easily find its presence in many Asian restaurants’ menus. Still, it’s not impossible to make this one yourself at home.
The secret of Pho lies in the broth. To receive the right taste, you should simmer water with beef bones for at least 3 hours. Then, remove the bones and add in the flavoring ingredients such as onions and gingers.
Here’s a valuable tip:
To keep the beef tender, do not cook it in advance. You should only soak the slices of beef into the boiling broth for a few seconds. The meat can quickly be cooked.
Now, everything is ready to serve. Put the boiled rice noodles into a bowl with slices of beef above. Pour the broth onto them.
Enjoy it with some sprouts, basil, and cilantro. And feel free to make a slurp!

For the rice, heat the pan and cook the onion along with meat, vegetables, salt, and pepper. Add the rice and stir well to break it into little pieces. Then, mix the rice with some ketchup and soy sauce.
The next thing to deal with is the omelet. Firstly, whisk the egg with milk and then pour the mixture into a pan. Next, place the rice on one side of the omelet. Gently fold both sides of the omelet into the middle to coat the rice.
Finally, put everything onto a plate and decorate it with ketchup and mayonnaise. Now, have a taste of this scrumptious Omurice.
