People, look at this stupid recipe, submitted by members of BBC Good Food Blog, and has a solid 5 stars!

https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/887634/vietnamese-prawn-pho

Here's a picture of it:

And the ingredients?

  • 4 birdseye chillis, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 stick of lemongrass, cracked with the side of a knife
  • 2cm piece of ginger, squashed slightly
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and sliced diagonally
  • 600 mls of fish or vegetable stock
  • 3 tbsp of nam plah (asian fish sauce)
  • Handful of coriander leaves
  • Handful of mint leaves
  • 150g cooked king prawns
  • 150g rice noodles
  • 100g bean sprouts
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

And the prep/cooking method and procedure? It is a crime!

King prawns? Would be excellent in hủ tiếu.

Lemongrass? Would be excellent in Bún Bò Huế.

I think that's exactly what happened here. It's okay if people create whatever they want to eat, but passing off something like this as pho is just weird. Not sure what they're trying to accomplish except to get people to talk about their stupid recipe on their website. Oh wait...
