I have always wished to make my own beef pho. It’s so comforting and refreshing having noodle soup as a meal. I love the crunchy bean sprouts, the ever-so-flavourful broth, the fresh coriander, the lime juice and last but not least, the slices of beef to complete the noodle soup.
Before I proceed further, I should warn you that this is by no means an authentic beef pho. In fact, the base flavour of the broth hails from Thailand i.e. the Thai green curry paste!
Yes, my friends, this is my cheat approach to the popular Vietnamese dish! I know I am such a “cheater” when it comes to home cooking ha!
Having said that, I can guarantee you that it is no less delicious and satisfying. As my beloved and I feel a little strange about having raw beef slices on top of our noodles, I grilled the beef marinated in Thai green curry paste on a griddle pan before topping the noodle soup. As for the broth and noodles, I cooked them all in one pot. Yes, there’s no need to blanch the noodles on a separate pot. Isn’t this music to your ears?
