On my recent trip to Hawaii.. I tried pho for the first time. It is a delicious Vietnamese soup. Since I returnedI’m  always on the lookout for a pho spot. I came up with this quick recipe to try at home! It’s a very basic recipe. On a recent trip to H-Mart (Asian supermarket) I bought most of the ingredients.

what you need:

1 lb Chicken cutlets (cut in small thin pieces)

Chicken broth 1 liter

1-2 tbs Fish sauce

Pho Noodles

5 cloves of minced Garlic

1 Onion sliced into thin rings

Dash of Black Pepper



Bean sprout

Sriracha (optional)

1 Lime 

Jalapeño (optional)

Mint leave (optional)

Cook noodles as per the directions on label. Reserve.

Take 1 liter chicken broth, garlic and chicken and bring to a boil on high heat.

Boil until chicken is cooked about 15 minutes depending on how thin you cut chicken. 

Remove chicken and put it to the side. You can shred it. Then strain the broth.

Lower the broth to a simmer and add the onions and 1-2 tbs fish sauce depending on your taste. Put a dash of pepper. Let it simmer for another 15 minutes or so. 

This goes on the side of your pho for you to add as much as you please:

chop up your cilantro, mint, and scallions. 

Rinse the bean sprouts with cold water and cut the lime into wedges. 

I add sriracha I like it spicy..

Voila Pho!
