Usually it is made with beef broth, but Varn made it for us with chicken broth.

She arrived from the market with, fresh pork, chicken and lots of herbs, Vietnamese mint and corainder.

PHO (Simply pronounced Fuh)

1 Litre chicken stock
4cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and halved
2 star anise
3 teaspoons of light soy sauce
1 tablespoon of fish sauce
2 cups of rice noodles (pad thai) your choice of noodle
2 tablespoons of lime juice
2 cups of sliced cooked pork
1/2 cup of fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup of fresh coriander leaves
2 green onions, thinly sliced
Red Birdseye chili and lime wedges, and fresh diced garlic to serve.

Method

Place the stock in a saucepan with ginger, star anise, soy sauce and the fish sauce. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the noodles according to the instructions on the packet, and then drain well.
Divide the noodles among warmed soup bowls, then top with sliced pork fillet, mint, onions and coriander.
Pour over the hot soup mixture (the heat will gently cook the meat) and top with chili, lime juices and fresh garlic.

Our sweet Moscato would go well with this lovely soup.
