    Thank You for the recipe. I am of Polish heritage. This not the type of food that I was ever exposed to. A wonderful friend turned me on to Pho Tai a couple of years ago. It was a wonderful thing to happen in my life! Anyway, I finally wanted to make it for myself, and I found your recipe. It really turned out great!!! I don't have a gas stove so I laid a diffuser over the electric coils on my stove and blackened my ginger on there. It worked really good. My questions would be: Where do I find cardamom pods and 4 star anise. Oh, I bought a thin cut chuck steak and sliced into slivers. It worked very well. So yeah! Thank You so much for the recipe

    Today I made my way to several stores looking for Oxtail (an organic butcher in our area) and world market for star anise. I had everything else on hand since we cook Asian fare frequently. My french cuisine background simply would not allow me to use the bones raw in water. I had to brown them first, I've noticed several vietnamese recipes do not brown the bones which results in a richer base...I can't stand the nasty froth that comes off raw bones in boiling water, it's disgusting. The ingredients were accurate, the cinnamon was a bit pungent, I used whole cardamon pods. The end result was very aromatic. Brown the bones. It makes a huge difference.

    Thank you so much. I'm a pho addict. Always wanted to try it at home but not from a kit. @girlindirt: Yes Windsor Ontario has a couple great Pho places (the best in Ontario in fact). A small town near there called Leamington has one pho place and usually it is to die for.

    Bonito flakes are made from fish--not vegan unfortunately. Looks delicious :(
