About this recipe: In this classic soup, paper-thin slices of raw beef are cooked with rice noodles in individual serving bowls into which hot spiced beef stock has been added. If you can find pho stock cubes, they give the pho broth a more authentic taste.

i love your recipe. It's my fav traditional dish. I LOVE Pho but I no longer have to labor for my love since I discovered this great company called Star Anise Foods that make these incredible Pho kits that's all natural and organic, and using a family recipe from Nam Dinh where Pho came from. You must try them! It takes 15 minutes and it comes out tasting wonderful every time I make it. They sell you a spice packet and a noodle packet, all you do is add fresh ingredients. I got mine off Amazon.com, just search for Happy Pho, but you can also get them in Northern California stores http://staranisefoods.com/find-us.aspx - 15 May 2010
