This is the year that I became obsessed with Pho. There’s a place not too far from me that serves up some pretty amazing pho dishes and I’ve tried just about all of them. It’s gotten to the point where I crave it on cold days or if I’m not feeling up to par. Chicken noodle soup just doesn’t do it for me anymore – I need the spiciness, heartiness and flavor of a really good Pho.

I’m frankly surprised that it’s taken me this long to try my hand at making a pho recipe at home. This being a “faux” pho recipe, however, I suppose I can’t really claim that I’ve made an authentic Pho recipe just yet. But it’s my version and it tastes FANTASTIC. I took the liberty of adding an egg to the broth which thickens it and gives it a slightly creamy consistency which strays even further from authenticity. You can choose to skip the egg if that’s not your thing.

This faux pho recipe could also be a great way to use up some leftover steak. You could easily make a bowl just for yourself for a quick lunch or dinner – just slice up whatever leftover steak you’ve got and toss it in.

What I can tell you for certain is that you will really enjoy this easy Faux Pho recipe. It takes just minutes to prepare before you have a beautiful dish of deliciousness before you. Top it with your favorite Pho toppings and you’ll be in faux heaven pho sho!

Try using this + adding 1 teaspoon - 1 tablespoon (to taste) of Chinese Five Spice Seasoning! The five spice has star anise + anise + cinnamon + cloves + garlic which are basically many of the ingredients used in real pho so it imitates the flavor extremely well for cheap!
