Easy PHO 3 Ways! Beef, Chicken, Veggie – Honeysuckle — 57 Comments

  1. Omg I love pho!!! I never thought I could make it myself! Loved this video!!! You make the best videos/recipes hands down! Thank you ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Love all the different options for pho. I grew up eating the beef version, but my dad would add a whole chicken to our pho broth to round out the flavor and then he found out I like eating the chicken over the beef so he’d take the meat out early (as opposed to letting it cook until it falls apart) so I can have chicken instead of beef. Now that I’m older, I add both beef and chicken to my bowl of pho when possible. But then there are the meatballs and the tendon from the big chunks of bones….mmmm! We had regular Thanksgiving food last Thursday followed with pho for dinner. So good!

    • Yeah, I cannot imagine how vegans and vegetarians survive because there’s just no way to get the same depth of flavor as using real bones in the broth.

    • David Jonathan Mello actually it is not hard at all to call it LIVING. I am a teenager living with a family that love meat but I explained why I am vegetarian to them. After a few days they finally noticed that I was not joking, when I told them I was vegetarian. I am not sure if you meant it in a mean or funny way. It is not important to me. And I am not mad. Omg why did I explain so much๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. I know TECHNICALLY it wouldn’t be vegetarian/ vegan anymore, but I think a poached egg would be great in the Pho Chay. But all of these sound yummy!

  4. for the Pho-lovers, don’t squeeze the lime or put in any bloody dipping sauces BEFORE you take a sip of hot pho soup. taste on your own first, always!! I used to do that but since I’ve found the proper way to enjoy the broth, I don’t want to add in anything more in my bowl of pho.

    • It’s not the same. Palm sugar has more flavor. But you can use it or white sugar to replace rock sugar. I think rock sugar is slightly less sweet so maybe add a bit less palm or regular sugar.

    • Leticia Gomes rock sugar is cane sugar, water, and a preservative. Totally different flavor. I’ve substituted rock sugar for regular sugar before and the broth came out fine.

    • TheOther better to use one without salt added if you do because if you follow the rest of the recipe exactly, it will turn out waaay too salty. You can always follow your taste and water it down to your liking. Be sure to use fish sauce from a glass bottle. It makes a difference!

  5. I love ๐Ÿฒ Pho,….but it’s easier for me to buy and eat…, I’m watching this at 11pm and it’s cold and and I’m really hungry ๐Ÿ˜‹

  6. I guess everyone thinks if you shake your head and moan “mmm” that we are going to believe it’s good. ;/ everytime, just wish it wasnt so dramatic and it would have been okay.

  7. please…. What the f*k are you doing? If you not gonna teach it the right way then shut the damn channel. You use beef Broth for PhแปŸ? PhแปŸ Bรฒ is not a kind of culinary for LAZY a$$ person. Just stop seasoning other countries’ traditions. TEACH IT THE RIGHT WAY or DUMP THAT BEEF BROTH OVER YOURSELF.

    • That’s just really rude, Hoang Hai Vu. Like she said, she is Vietnamese. She does quick and easy recipes for those whom live in the West and may not have the time or ingredients to make pho from scratch. She titled it “Easy Pho”, not “Traditional Pho”…so there is no reason to be up in arms over her video.

    • ???? there is no such thing: “easy pho” exists. Call it something else. She created her own stuff so she should named it herself. People call call me rude, I call those who mess up their true blood’s traditions rude.

    • There is another rediculus thing happens in most Vietnamese restaurants in the U.S. is that they offer Pho with shrimp and some folks put Shrimp Paste in their Pho Bo. Just like BANH MI, PHO BO came with what it is to be called PHO BO. If you make PHO SHRIMP, just call it shrimp noodle soup or whatever. Those people who smear on their own tradition should shame on themselves. I suggest the title of this video to be edited as “Quick and easy Pho Bo flavorerd Beef Noodle soup.”

    • That title is a bit of a mouthful and not as catchy as Easy Pho. I still don’t see what is wrong with what she did. She used bone broth which is the main thing you need to get flavor for pho without cooking it for hours and hours. Her channel is geared towards people in the West so it’s more about introducing them to various types of foods or for those whom want to learn about these foods but are too intimidated with the full list of authentic ingredients or the time involved to make a traditional meal. If you are looking for traditional scratch recipes, go to Helen’s Recipes channel.

      To be honest, Vietnamese people argue over what is or is not pho. Northerners look down on Southerners for adding all the extra herbs and condiments to their pho and thinks we bastardized it. But even in Vietnam, you see different variations (I saw one where they put in fried shallots or fried garlic, which sounds ingenious and delicious to me, but I bet someone out there already frowned on that practice). It’s how new recipes are invented all the time. However, I see where you are coming from with the shrimp paste in pho…makes me wonder if it’s more Laotian people doing that than Vietnamese? Regardless, recipes change and evolve on some level, especially if they are transported to a continent where the locals are not familiar with the recipe and ingredients. Adaptation is survival.

  8. The restaurant I go to for pho closed down for 3 weeks (a sudden death in the family) so here I am trying to learn how to get my fix. ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™
