What’s good Pho you!Cannabis Infused Beef Pho

Brrrrrrr. It’s cold, and everyone’s getting sick and passing along the flu by sharing rigs, joints and bongs. I am just getting over this flu. There is only one food that jump starts health for me with fresh broth, herbs, THC, CBD and sweet spices. I think that it’s this large bowl of Vietnamese beef pho’ that did more for my well-being than any prescription or over-the-counter drugs.

The great thing about beef pho is that you can make the broth, portion it and freeze it and have it ready in about as long as it takes to cook the rice noodles and infuse a little THC and CBD oil into MCT and Sesame oil.

The broth for beef phở is made by simmering different cuts of beef and oxtail with charred onion, ginger and sweet spices such as Saigon cinnamon, star anise, black cardamom, coriander seed, fennel seed, and clove. Terpene rich food, Vietnamese dishes are typically served with lots of greens and herbs to refresh and brighten the flavors and senses, this is no exception with its garnish of green onions, Thai basil, chili peppers, lime wedges, bean sprouts, fresh coriander and mint. Served with fork tender beef from the broth and some bone marrow to add an extra layer of richness to warm your soul.

Fill a stock pot with 6 quarts of cold water or chicken broth, or a combination of both. Add the beef brisket, top round and/or oxtail and bring to a simmer. Skim and discard the foam that comes to the surface and add the charred onion, ginger, garlic, pure cane sugar, peppercorns, fish sauce, star anise, cloves, cardamom, fennel seeds, coriander seeds, and a large pinch of sea salt. Bring to a simmer. Cook for 2 1/2 hours, until the meat is fork tender. Turn off the heat and cool. Refrigerate overnight. Remove the beef from the broth, trim the fat and cut the meat into slices. Remove the fat from the broth, strain into a clean pot and bring to a simmer. Add fish sauce to taste. Season with salt and pepper.
