Pho dac Brandon

Now anyone and everyone who has ever had pho and loved it will know that it is a magical dish that only an ancient Vietnamese woman can conjure. I learned from my Vietnamese friends that they don't even make the stuff at home, they go to the pho shop. Well....I tried to make pho once and the three day process resulted in a tragedy.

So, I decided to make my own "not really but imma call it pho" recipe.

Here it is.

Pho dac Brandon

1lb thinly sliced beef steak cubed
1 whole onion diced
2 jalapenos diced
1 bunch cilantro diced
3 potatoes diced
3 carrots sliced
4 cloves garlic minced
6 cups water
1 packet Goya Sazon con Azafran
2 cans Goya black beans

Put the onions, jalapenos, cilantro, and garlic and sautee in oil until the onions are transparent.  Add in all other ingredients except carrots, potatoes and water. Sautee together for about 10 minute. Add water, potatoes, and carrots. Let simmer over medium heat for one hour.

This recipe will serve 8-10 people for roughly $15.
