I’m so excited to announce a contest sponsored by the most delicious bone broth ever: Numo Bone Broth! Check out my Instagram post for more details and enter to win by Friday, June 2nd!
Not is Numo's broth delicious and rich enough to serve as the base for many delicious soups like my beef pho recipe below, it’s super healthy! Bone broths separate themselves from your average meat broths because they are chalked full of collagen, amino acids, and minerals that a great at nourishing our skin, joints, and gut.
I had a feeling that when I decided to make pho with my beef bone broth kit that the broth would stand up on its own as an amazing base for beef pho. And it was, which made this the easiest pho recipe I’ve ever made!
Simply cooking the broth overnight, I added some aromatics in the morning, prepared the noodles, steak, and herbs, and simply poured the broth over everything to create an amazing bowl of WOW!
You got it: Healthy, delicious beef bone broth in pho = amazing. Be sure to check out Numo’s Beef and Chicken Bone Broths at the the Numo Shop!
