New Food Friday #9- Faux Pho out of Ramen Noodles

So I was perusing Pinterest last week when I found this link to Faux Pho made from Ramen Noodles. I knew I had to try it. I love Pho but we don't have any places to get it in my area.

This was a little spur of the moment so I didn't have the ingredients I ideally would want to add in. Also the link didn't have a specific recipe so I will just walk you through my recipe.

Faux Pho from Ramen Noodles

9 Cups Water
3 Packages Chicken Ramen Noodles (You could probably use any flavor you want)
5 small pork chops, sliced thinly
1/2 onion, chopped thinly
3 cups Spinach
Red Pepper Flakes
Garlic Powder

Optional Add-ins: Sprouts, Fish Sauce, Cilantro, Kale, Most any other fast cooking vegetables you want.

Fill large pot with water and bring to a boil.

Once boiling add onions. While the onions were cooking I chopped my pork chops- the trick is to slice them very thin so they will cook fast enough.

Add pork chops to water once onions appear soft.

Once water has returned to a boil add the ramen noodles, seasoning packets, and garlic powder. Also add red pepper flakes- probably go light on these at first unless you like really spicy things! Let boil for 2 minutes, then add spinach and boil an additional minute.

This was very very good- the only thing I would have done differently was add extra spinach if I had more on hand and add sprouts.

I can't believe this is the 9th New Food Friday, I have been having a really good time trying all these new recipes!!

Linking up with these great parties!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day!!

great job! I love dressing up ramen noodles - there's a thai peanut sauce that's great on them, or I like to add a lightly cooked egg on top - the yolk adds a lot of richness to the broth. And I *love* adding spinach.

Geeze... now I have to go look up Pho. I guess I better get out more,lol.

It sure looks good and I bet with all those good ingredients you could probably leave out one of the season packets.

Thanks again for coming to the party!
