The Vietnamese called it “Pho” but us laotian folks called it “Fer”. Although the dish is originated from Vietnam, but just about every Asian countries had their own version of it. My brother and I loves eating pho especially during the cold months. At least once a week we would meet up at the local pho joint. But, lately I been cooking my own pho at home. With about the same amount I paid for two of us at the restaurant, I can easily make it at home and able to feed about 10 people. Some people likes all kind of meats from various part of cow on their pho, As for me, I like to keep it simple to just meat and meat balls. I always buy my meat from Costco because it is fresher and priced better than most of markets. This particular time I picked up a tray of top sirloin for $12.89. With Costco, the meat doesn’t stays on the shelves as long as most grocery markets. I do not trust the meats from any Asian markets, who knows how long those meats been on the shelves. The rest of ingredients I picked up from local Asian market.
After writing this post, I have to go home and make me a bowl :-).
