Big thanks to my friend Chef Jason Carr of Tropicana Field home of the Tampa Bay Rays for his delicious homemade Pho recipe! This is VERY healthy and delicious, but does take a long time to prepare and the first time you buy everything can be on the expensive side. But over the long haul it’s not bad. This is a traditional Vietnamese dish basically consisting of a rich homemade broth that cooks the main meat dish in the bowl at serving. We are doing a beef tendon ball and strip variety here although there are countless variation including seafood, chicken, pork, veggie, etc. It’s also fun exploring your local Asian/Oriental markets in your area for the ingredients! For this you will need:
10 lbs. Marrow bones
Flank steak or thin cut bottom round
Pho spice packet
Other garnish as you wish such as hot sauces, peppers, etc.
10 cups water
