    Very good, The directions are a little hard to read like I accidentally added the broth with all of the spices when you were supposed to sauté the spices first but it still turned out really good

    Great. The broth was missing something though

    I have had Pho before so I was excited to make this but it just did not turn out well. The flavors just did not marry well at all.

    the only thing I changed was I made my own beef broth I let it cook in my crock pot for 24 hours, it was delicious. it was so good im making more for this cold weekend ...

    Now what the heck is 1 ginger... and 1 bean sprout? Haha. Still better than the other pho recipes on here. Mine turned out lacking that restaurant flavor though

    I was intimidated at first but it was actually pretty easy, the only thing I did different was add the thin sliced beef to the broth and let it cook there because I didn’t trust it to cook in the bowl, it was delicious!!! Will make again definitely:)

    I thought this was delicious and easy to make. I doubled this fish sauce and sugar. I also added a bit more clove and star anise. So delicious!

    So good. Didn't have star anise but did have ground fennel which I guess is the same thing lol. Still, everyone be liked it.

    Excellent recipe. Easy and quick to make. I make this several times a month for the family. I need to get ahead of things a bit by making the broth ahead of time, then it would be really quick!
