Making Pho Part Two
With the main chore of making broth done already, on the night of the party, all I had to do was slice thin pieces of raw beef, and arrange the mint, basil, cilantro, and bean sprouts.
I reheated the broth putting the tendon and meat that I'd picked off the bones back in, and adding fish sauce. I cooked the noodles, and served up portions of noodles, raw beef, and slivers of shallots, ladling hot broth on top which cooked the raw beef just enough.
Brownie made summer rolls with tofu, cilantro and rice noodles. I think the pho and rolls were just enough food. It left room for the mango and sticky rice and flourless chocolate cake and ice cream we had for dessert -- sorry no pictures, we were too intent on eating!
