To start the new year, and this blog correctly, I made Pho. The winter weather has finally arrived, and there's nothing better than a hot bowl of something. The recipe comes courtesy of Lucky Peach from their "101 Easy Asian Recipes" book I got from my sister.
I'm not one for substitutions in recipes I'm not familiar with, but I did use neck bones instead of short ribs. They were much cheaper, and I know other Pho recipes use them. It's a slow-cooker recipe, but my Crockpot is too small, so I used my dutch oven and set the oven to 250F.
Then we couldn't find our sriracha, so we made do with Ssam sauce. I would definitely do this recipe again. I'm probably going to low-carb it for lunch by substituting the rice noodles with shredded cabbage, or more bean sprouts.
