A BOWL OF PHO / Vietnam's treasured beef noodle soup that brings families together

A BOWL OF PHO / Vietnam's treasured beef noodle soup that brings families together


SFGate

[...] mention pho (pronounced fuh) -- our beloved beef noodle soup -- and immediately our differences vanish. Every weekend, my parents would take me and my siblings to Pho 79, a small, dark and run-down noodle shop in Saigon with wobbly tables and squeaky stools. Once seated, my parents placed our usual order: pho tai chin or pho with both rare and cooked beef for everyone, and, for the adults, ca phe sua da -- a delicious coffee drink served with condensed milk and ice. Yes, the broth smelled utterly beefy, laced with just-roasted ginger, anise and freshly chopped onions and cilantro. [...] arms and hands crisscrossing, we reached for a piece of lime to squeeze into the broth, a handful of cool, crisp bean sprouts, a few sprigs of Asian basil and saw-leaf herbs and fresh chiles. The Vietnamese, who valued cows and buffaloes as indispensable beasts of burden, ate little red meat, preferring pork, chicken and seafood. [...] with the French affection for bifteck and dishes with boeuf, red meat began to appear in markets and restaurants, thereby slowly influencing the local diet, especially that of the upper class. [...] some Hanoi cultural experts with ancestors who are said to have witnessed the birth of pho believe this dish parallels the history of Vietnam, harboring both a Chinese and French connection. [...] they believe perhaps it was first created when Vietnamese cooks learned to make pot au feu for their French masters. [...] others argue that while the French can take credit for popularizing beef, it was actually the Chinese who inspired the dish with ingredients like noodles, ginger and anise. In the 1930s, in part spurred by nationalistic sentiments, some Hanoi scholars wrote passionately about pho, a food that not only cleverly provided all the necessary nourishment in one convenient bowl, but one that also symbolically freed the Vietnamese. Huu Ngoc, a prolific author and cultural expert who's written that pho is a contribution to human happiness, recently recalled his memories of those times: Pho was very special, almost status food. [...] my mother and her contemporaries slurped on hu tieu, a Chinese-style rice noodle soup made with pork bones and pork meat. Reflecting the abundance of its new surroundings, it had more meat (imagine the portion now in the United States), more noodles, more broth. Because southerners are by nature indulgent -- demanding richer, livelier flavors and textures -- bean sprouts and rau thom or fragrant herbs such as saw- leaf and basil were added. Garnishes such as lime wedges, fresh chiles, chile sauce and tuong, or black bean sauce, were served alongside, giving the soup a dimension never before experienced. Noodle shops have now proliferated throughout the United States, opening not only in the traditional enclaves of immigrant communities, but in mainstream neighborhoods as well. Pho comes with a variety of toppings including rare beef, well-done beef and slices of brisket, tendon, tripe and even meatballs. Chile sauce and hoisin sauce are also traditional condiments but I avoid them because, to my taste, they mask the flavor of pho. VIETNAMESE BEEF NOODLE SOUP (PHO BO)You can prepare the beef broth in advance and assemble just before serving. 1 1/2 pounds fresh or dried flat rice stick noodles (about 1/8 inch wide) -- 1 yellow onion, sliced paper thin -- Bring the beef broth to a rolling boil. Sprinkle each serving with 1 tablespoon sliced yellow onion, 1 tablespoon green onions, 1 tablespoon cilantro and pepper to taste.

Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup with Fresh Herbs (Faux Phõ) - FineCooking

Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup with Fresh Herbs (Faux Phõ) - FineCooking


FineCooking

Phõ is a classic Vietnamese soup made from a long-simmered spiced beef broth poured over cooked rice noodles and thinly sliced raw beef (the heat of the broth cooks the beef). The soup is garnished with lots of bright, fresh ingredients, like herbs, scallions, and lime. This superfast version calls for doctoring store-bough broth with the same spices, and using thinly sliced leftover steak in place of the raw meat. It's not the real thing, but it comes close to being just as tasty, especially on a busy weeknight.

Vietnamese "Pho" Rice Noodle Soup with Beef

Vietnamese "Pho" Rice Noodle Soup with Beef


Epicurious

Pho Bo Editor's note: The recipe and introductory text below are excerpted from Mai Pham's book Pleasures of the Vietnamese Table. Pham also shared some helpful cooking tips exclusively with Epicurious, which we've added at the bottom of the page. To read more about Pham and Vietnamese cuisine, click here. This beloved noodle soup is a complete meal in itself and is best served for breakfast or lunch on a weekend. Because the simmering takes at least two hours, I like to prepare the broth a day ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator, where it will last for three days. Many cookbooks call for it to be made with oxtail bones, but I prefer marrow bones and beef chuck, which is what pho cooks in Vietnam use. A good pho broth needs to be clear, not muddy and dark, certainly fragrant of beef, anise and ginger. You can serve this soup with several toppings, but the easiest ones to prepare at home are cooked and raw beef. To use broth that has been made in advance, bring it to a boil, then add fresh ginger to refresh it. Come serving time, get friends or family to help cook the noodles and assemble the bowls. Make sure that the broth is boiling hot and the bowls preheated. Allow about 1 part noodles to 3 parts broth for each bowl.
