Easy fix: i added a can of beef broth, 2 tablespoon of fish sauce and some salt, cooked in pressure cooker for another 45 minutes. Then eat it with a small plate of fish sauce on the side.

Even then I find my pho not as salty as the one in the restaurant. Goes to show how much salt or msg they add.

I think there is an issue of cooking pho broth in the pressure cooker instead of the traditional way.  It seems to be saltier than usual.  I believe it's because of the scum from the meat and bone dissolving into the broth.  Traditional broth you have to skim the scum out every few minutes.  Also the fast cooking process does not fully extract all of the ingredients from the bone in order for it to meld into the broth.

My second bowl after the fix was really good. Much better than restaurant pho. I don't use neck bones. I use leg bones b/c I like to eat the bone marrow. Can't wait til dinner for another delicious bowl.
