Another “fun pho” weekend! I made pho with the usual beef marrow bones and decided to add beef brisket in the broth this time. It definitely made the broth a bit richer but also more oily so I had to occasionally skim most of the oil out but not all of it since oil = flavor. It was also unfortunate that I did not have any Thai basil leaves so we had to eat without it. It is difficult to find Thai basil leaves sometimes and the only places I know that have any are at Russo’s in Waltham and at any of the Asian markets in Boston or around Boston. It’s a long drive for me so I’ll have to do without.
