Essentially, Pho (pronounced foo)  is a substantial soup which contains noodles, often eaten for breakfast in Vietnam and considered by some to the the national dish of the country.   Traditionally made with tougher cuts of beef and bones, the extensive cooking time required, produces a dish full of flavour and succulence. 



Some believe the dish has its origin in French cuisine as it was the French who introduced the custom of using bones to make a base stock. Even the name pho is though to have been derived from  he French  name "pot au feu" . But there is no doubt that today's Pho is totally Vietnamese.



Although traditionally made with beef,  below are recipes for a traditional  and an alternative Pho.
