Here is the Pho Tai made by me 🙂
I could not find the eye round so I substitute with the thinly sliced beef for shabu-shabu (rinse and squeezed the meat to get rid of the blood), add cut chilli and change lemon to lime and substitute the sawtooth leaf with peppermints.
Could not find the Siracaha so only add Hoisin sauce.
By the way is it only me? I found that the overseas Vietnamese beef noodle taste much better than those sold in Vietnam itself? (Sorry no offense meant to anyone).
Hmmm…..maybe me not knowing where to find the good one in Vietnam. Or probably also due to the weather, coincidentally I always eat those Pho during winter trip so the hot soup taste even better 🙂
