But you end up with one hell of a great soup...and it's phenomenal meal.
(...and come on, it's not all that difficult to make!)

There was one in south Everett (WA) called Pho Kim.  I thinnk they've either closed or changed their name...I went to take a picture of the sign recently, and it's no longer there.

On a cold winter day it's the best for warming you up. I love the flavor of the broth. The combination of fresh mint, cilantro, basil, bean sprouts, lime, sliced chili peppers are some of my favorite in this dish. I also like to add some Sriracha hot chili sauce to give it some energy.  :)

Well took the plunge and made my 1st Pho.....Not a bad effort but needs some tweeking.
Slow boiled (160*f) for 5 -6 hours  several marrow bones and a pound+ of oxtail...skimmed
and seasoned with the charred onion and ginger root chunk/ and Pho spice mix.
Had some fresh hot and it was good but Not as good as the restaurant....
Let it cool overnite and skimmed the fat off....poured the clear off the sediment
and added a little bit of chicken boullion....this made it more better.... ;)
My new friend at the restaurant gave us some Bahn Pho noodles and they were
great in the mix.....i have a gallon of Pho to eat/freeze leftovers and savor....tweek;....
this soup rocks!  (the meat off the oxtail is good delicacy too)

Wow.  My gal would freakout pho sho ifn I boiled bones and oxtail in the house for 5 hours... :o
