Step 2: Pour oils in pan and wait until it boils. Fry garlic to make them golden and crispy. Put sliced beef in pan and then stir on medium – high heat until you see it cooked through. Saute the greeneries if you want.
Step 3: Place each ‘pho’ leaf on plate, add herbs, cilantro, salad and fried beef to it before rolling them like how we make spring rolls. Make sure to go as tight as you can so that the fillings can’t fall off.
Step 4: Prepare fish sauce by adding chopped garlic and chilies to a bowl. We need 1 – 2 cup servings of fish sauce. Measure 2 – 3 tablespoon of sugar, 2 lemons, and 4 – 6 water cups to add to the sauce. This formula can be adjusted to fit your demand. If you prepared it too much, then keep it in the jar and put in fridge for your food preparation next time.
How to enjoy:
After making one of the tastiest Vietnamese Pho recipes, serve the dish by arranging them on a heaping plate. Eat it with sweet and sour dipping sauce to experience the entire taste of rolling pho.
