Okay, I had seen this recipe years ago in the BH&G:s cookbook and unfortunately lost it. I am elated that I've located it once again! I am half Asian and therefore have an affinity towards asian-related flavours. That being said, I've tested this out on many friends with a variety of preferences, ALWAYS to rave reviews. For those who received anything but accolades, all I can say is that you either prepared it incorrectly OR your friends/family have defective taste buds.

This does sound good but if you want real Pho Ga (which this is attempting to be) leave out the coconut oil, honey, and lettuce. Add in star anise, cracked pepper, chili paste (I like the garlic chili paste myself), shallots, sesame oil, and garlic cloves. Make a broth out of it all, adding chicken stock or water. Put the chicken in the broth to cook, drain everything into a large bowl or pot, keeping the broth. Pour the broth into bowls, add the noodles that were cooked separately add the ingredients that were drained including the chicken, add sliced tomatoes, sliced green onion, sliced napa cabbage, and I like to add water chestnuts. That's real Pho Ga, but I'll try this, too, with cabbage instead of lettuce (yuck!).

My 21 year old son loves this recipe!  It is his favorite dish.  I love it also!  We use ground turkey meat usually and use Udon noodles instead of the thin rice noodles.  I also put in a little sriracha with the meatballs, because he doesn't like the Fresno chili peppers.  We also add some rice to the bowl.  I make it almost once a week.

I didn't have rice wine vinegar so I used mirin instead. I also added some shredded red cabbage. I was really surprised at how flavorful the meatballs were! We added some sriracha for a little heat too.

I just tried this and really hated it. Well the meatballs were great. But the dressing, or whatever you want to call it, was horribly watery and just plain blah! I used jalapenos because I couldn't find any Fresno chili's. Maybe that accounts for some of the blah-ness. I suggest sesame oil and soy sauce for the rice noodles The whole thing was totally missing a salty savory taste and that would have helped. My family hated it but loved the chicken meatballs. I will never make this again. I hate dumping food down the garbage disposal.
