Pho Noodles with Beef, Hanoi Style

Consider pho, a small word for a big bowl of noodles in soup. The soup is clear delicate, and redolent of cinnamon, star anise, and ginger. The noodles swirl just below the surface of the steaming broth, barely visible beneath slices of beef, slivers of onion, and a tumble of crisp bean sprouts. A miniscule mountain of aromatic herbs, big green slices of chili, and a chunk of lime attend the bowl, for seasoning everything just so. Pho gives nourishment and pleasure to anyone who sits down to enjoy a bowl. For Vietnamese people far from home, eating pho can set things right, restore the spirit, touch the heart. Pho is a small word for a big, steaming, herb-laden bowl of comfort food. This recipe provides a blueprint for a streamlined home version of pho. It involves a few steps, but none of them is difficult, and with good company and several pairs of hands, everything can be ready in under an hour. Pho takes a little more time than some dishes, but it gives you a memorable, delicious reward.
