How to Make Homemade Pho?

phoOne of the best things about making your own pho is the great aroma that all the spices and herbs used to layer flavor into the broth. Lots of aromatics like cinnamon, cloves and star anise add a warm spice to the broth, while fresh ginger and jalapenos add a spicy bite. A splash of fish sauce adds that Asian flavor and gives the broth a real deep savory character.

Crisp chopped bok choy and bean sprouts add a bit of green freshness and a pleasant bitterness that balances out the salty broth.  A garnish of fresh lime brings just the right amount of acid to make the spices pop. Combine all these flavors and this pho will be sure to be a popular meal the next time you make slow cooker soup recipes!
