I used BetterThanBoullion beef broth, a star anise, a bit of cinnamon stick, a little 5 Spice to make the broth instead of making the broth the 'right' way.
Softened up some thin rice noodles.
Put the noodles, some bean sprouts and a bit of L.O. thinly sliced fried tofu in a bowl, a few slices of shallot/onions. Poured the broth over, added some basil, thin slices of jalapenos. Squeezed in some fresh lime juice.
It sure wasn't authentic but it sure was tasty.
