"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." ~ T. E. Lawrence
I’m ba-ack! Missed you guys! So I wish you all a very happy Tuesday. I’m ready to rock with a new recipe of quick and easy pho. Is there such a thing? It might not be entirely authentic (I cheated and didn’t simmer the broth with beef bones for a day) but it turned out quite yummy. Vegetarian friends could try this with vegetable broth and minus the beef to get some fantastic Vietnamese-style noodle soup. Whatever your food preferences, I hope you enjoy. The best part? It’s super easy!
What you need (serves 4):
What you do:
Bring the beef stock to a boil in a large pot. Add cloves, juice of 2 limes, fish sauce. Boil for 10 minutes.
Bring water to boil in a separate pot and add rice noodles. They cook quickly so don’t let them sit for too long. Drain and set aside.
Pour out the hot beef broth into bowls, add the rice noodles, bean sprouts, cilantro, basil, radishes, chilis and top with the rare sirloin. Douse with additional fish sauce and/or Sriracha as desired. Enjoy!
