When I was a little girl, pho was my favorite noodle soup of all time and still is today. I would always order the large. All of my family members were super impressed. My favorite pho was made by mom. I’ve learned the shorter pho recipe from my mom and I wanted to share it with you. 🙂 Enjoy and let me know what you think below!
