A new recipe

Post by Cass on Wed Sep 24, 2014 6:27 pm

So today as its my day off, I am attempting to make Pho for the first time - home made. For this of you not familiar it is a Vietnamese broth to which you add thinly sliced beef, beansprouts, limes, chilies (Thai birdseye), Asian basil, cilantro, rice noodles and because I can shitake mushrooms.

Luckily we have a couple of Asian supermarkets here and all the ingredients are fresh and I am using a authentic broth base which the girl who does my pedicure told me she uses. The broth is simmering as we speak - the smell of star anise and cinammon is making me drool. I have another 8 hours to wait to eat it.....torture

I will let you know how it goes down so to speak......

Lol...I do hope the toenails have nothing to do with the broth. Shocked

Other than that, sounds delish...

Sounds delicious; reminds me of Haltom City, where I grew up -- Belknap Street has tons of Pho places within a few blocks of one another and you can smell it everywhere Smile
