FRIDAY NIGHT IN: Spring rolls & PHO!

We always travel down to South Philadelphia to get our favorite Vietnamese staple, Pho but tonight we wanted to bring the Pho to us.  What’s awesome about this recipe is once you get all the ingredients to create the dish you can recreate it again and again before using them all up!

For the broth:

Coriander, star anise, fresh ginger, cilantro, green onions, chicken stock/veg. stock, clove, onion and jalapeno. Add shirmp, chicken, beef, fish, etc.
