Breakfast #14: Vietnamese Beef Pho

Homemade beef pho is easy to make with fresh ingredients. The meat cooks in pho stock at the table. Vietnamese is a healthy choice with lots of fresh herbs and vegetables. Photo shows more vegetables so I adjusted qty in recipe for what I ate. The pho stock cooks the vegetables and meat after serving meal. You can substitute steak with chicken breast fillet if you prefer. I grew all the herbs myself including Vietnamese mint.
