Backpacker’s Pantry Beef Pho

Price $8.50


Weight 5 oz


This Vietnamese dish consists of broth, linguine-shaped rice noodles, herbs, and meat with packets of lime juice powder and sriracha sauce for a nice flavor punch. “It’s like spicy beef ramen—but 100 times better,” said one tester after wolfing down a big bowl on a chilly night in John Muir Wilderness (California). The salty broth tends to sink to the bottom of the pouch, so best to eat it out of bowls.

$8.50 (2 servings); 4.6 oz.
