Slow Cooker Chicken Pho: Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup

It’s a new year, and I have a new job – so I and my new Crock Pot (a Christmas gift from a lovely family in Edmonton) are going to be very good friends, methinks. But why stop at stews? One of the very first meals I made in my new appliance is a satisfying Vietnamese soup that’s perfect for the cold winter months. Our family loves an iconic Vietnamese soup: Pho. It is gradually gaining momentum as a mainstream meal in Edmonton, and the key components are tender meat, rice noodles, bean sprouts, fragrant herbs and, most importantly, an intensely aromatic broth. The secret to this version is to char the ginger and onion before slow-cooking.

  1. Ooh, I’ve been wanting to try this in the slow cooker. Could you please tell me is it as close to restaurant Pho? Hope you don’t mind me asking. BTW, I just came back from UK, nice to know there’s a fellow pinay living there! I’m jealous! (^_^)

    1. Lol i used to live in the uk! Moved to canada 1.5 years ago. This is pretty close to restaurant pho. For the beef taste, use oxtail instead of chicken. That tasted just like montreal pho to me!
