How to Make ' PHO' Vietnam's Noodle


Pho is a kind of noodle food from rice flour is processed using broth sauce that is equipped with slices of meat and vegetables on it. The types of broth sauce available include beef broth, chicken, pork, and seafood. Vietnamese people love mint leaves so almost every mint leaf dish is always added in it. Pho is a savory broth of fresh broth with a mixture of lettuce, cabbage, bean sprouts, and of course mint leaves.

Making a good pho broth will feel familiar to anyone who has ever made their own chicken stock or beef stock. The process is almost exactly the same, except for the addition of a few uniquely Vietnamese ingredients like star anise, cinnamon, ginger, soy sauce, and fish sauce. These extra ingredients give pho its seductive personality and trademark balance of sweet, salty, and savory flavors.

Of all these ingredients, fish sauce is likely to be the least familiar to most of us. It’s exactly what it sounds like: a sauce made from fermented fish. It has an intense flavor and super-pungent aroma, like concentrated anchovies.
