Faux Pho

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.

I opened this wondering what you did last night to make your faux pas.

I make so many faux pas ( pases? passes? never mind) I'd have to write a book to include them all.
