This iconic Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup (Pho Bo) is quintessential comfort food and one of the most well-known dishes to come out of Vietnam. Making pho noodle soup takes a little time but it's well worth the wait. And remember, as it freezes well you can cook up a big batch and enjoy the steamy hot soup throughout the week.
