Vietnamese Pho Recipes

No matter if you’ve been to Vietnam before or not, you’ve likely heard of pho, if not already eaten it many times before. The noodle soup didn’t become so famous for anything – it really is one of the most common dishes throughout the country, and it makes the Vietnamese food menu at nearly every sit-down restaurant too.

Pho is the combination of soft rice noodles in a soup broth, normally prepared with either bo (beef) or ga (chicken) – both of which can be extremely delicious, but I’m normally more of a beef kind of guy.

The noodles are flash boiled until soft, topped with your choice of meat, and often finished with a sprinkle of chopped green onions and sometimes sweet onions as well. But what I really love most about eating pho in Vietnam is the fresh plate of herbs, typically including sawtooth herb, mint, and Vietnamese coriander, along with house-made chili sauce, that’s on your table for self-service when you eat it.

While I did enjoy a bowl of pho from time to time when I was in Vietnam, I think pho is sort of the pad thai of Vietnamese cuisine, in that, yes it’s very good, however there are also so many other delicious dishes to try – perhaps it has a little-undeserved fame, when compared to so many other delicious Vietnamese dishes?

Today, I'll show you a lot of great Vietnamese Pho recipes and how to cook Vietnamese Pho.
