Vietnamese Phó Recipe

Little Who fell in love with phó but we couldn’t find a really authentic Vietnamese restaurant in our tiny little Southern town. Thankfully, we have some great friends on the internet that introduced us to the Phó Hōa seasoning packets! We added a few ingredients to make it our own and now it’s a weekly favorite that we get to share with you. Enjoy!


Vietnamese Phó

Broth Ingredients

  • 2 – 32 oz cartons of beef broth

  • 1/2 onion, quartered

  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1/4 cup fresh ginger, chopped

  • 1/4 cup fish sauce

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 2 tbsp salt

  • 2 Phó Hōa seasoning packets

Other Ingredients


  • Heat beef broth in a large pot over medium-high heat.

  • Add onion, ginger, garlic, fish sauce, sugar and salt to the broth.

  • Simmer for 30 minutes and add Phò Hōa seasoning packets. Simmer for another 20 minutes.

  • Cook rice noodles in a pot of boiling water until al dente. Drain and set aside.

  • Place the beef, sprouts, herbs, limes and sliced onion in separate serving dishes on the table.

  • When ready to eat, place noodles and meat in a bowl. Ladle the hot broth over everything and watch it cook the meat.

  • Add desired toppings to taste.

** You can find the seasoning packets in your local asian grocery store but if you don’t have one nearby or you’re intimidated to go in, I’ve put affiliate links for them below. (disclosure)

But really, go into the Asian market and use my guides to help you find the best stuff 😉
