If this recipe is meant to be equivalent to Vietnamese Pho, then it is far from it. It is missing many key ingredients that make Pho really Pho. To really make this a quick short cut Pho recipe, then just buy the Pho paste at the Asian markets and add it in to give it the Pho flavor.

Made this tonight for my husband and I. I have to say I thought it was an ok dish but my husband just raved over it. I cannot really say why I thought it was just ok, normally I love Asian food and cook lots of Thai, Phillipino and Korean. I think it was just me tonight maybe and not the dish. Anyways, my husband definitely wants me to make it again so thanks for the recipe! PS. use extra cilantro and green onions are recommended!
