Beef Pho is one of my favorite comfort food. My husband loves pho so I make it at least once a month. Every time I make it we would have it for lunch and dinner because there’s so much broth for my small family. It is kind of hard to get leg or knuckle bones where I live so I don’t use those when I make mine. Once in awhile I’ll use oxtail bones. They are kind of pricy here.

I remembered my mom making pho with leg bones outside in a large pot. It always took forever for it to be done cooking. It was so delicious that it filled me up every time. Meat balls are always my favorite and one of the best part in pho.

Everyone makes their pho differently so don’t judge. Each pho bowl will taste differently if you add condiments. I like my pho broth to be spicy and sour so my broth will be red instead of brown.
