We're a family of 2 so I was worried that they'd go bad on me before I had a chance to use it all, but I've had open jars stored in the fridge for a few months at a time and have never had a problem. I've also purchased the chicken base and am just as pleased. Wonderful products!
Do yourself a favor...make your own. This is what I do now to get the best "base" imaginable at NO cost: everytime I pan fry a steak, pork chops or chicken breasts without any plan to make a pan sauce, I deglaze the hot pan immediately with water, let it reduce a bit, pour the result into a small 1 cup plastic glad/ziplock container, and pop it into the freezer. Any fat floats to the top and gets removed when I go to use it. Sometimes, it is pretty salty, if my meat was more highly seasoned, but the meat flavor is very potent and is mixed with water when I make soup, so it's never been too salty for my needs, and I always wait until I've used my broth stash before adding add'l sodium. Honestly, this is a wonderful technique. I keep one little plastic container for chicken, and another for beef and pork, mixed. I just keep adding to the little container each time I cook (topping it off) and if it gets full, I start another one. I get maybe 1/4-1/2 cup of liquid from each deglazing but it is quadruple the flavor of a can of broth.Read more ›
A dipping sauce can be made with ¼ cup water, 2 bay leaves, ¼ teaspoon beef base, 1 teaspoon Italian tomato paste, ½ teaspoon dried parsley, ¼ teaspoon dried minced onion and 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme. Heat in a saucepan and then simmer for a few minutes until slightly reduced and it tastes rich and delicious.
Better Than Bouillon is a stock paste or more like a beef base than a bouillon cube. Dry bouillon cubes are famous for being overly salty and that is why beef base is a much healthier, not to mention, tasty alternative. This beef base also contains garlic, onion and spices.
One teaspoon of bouillon blended into one cup of hot water makes one cup of beef stock. To make gravy, I use two tablespoons butter and two tablespoons flour plus the stock and a sprinkling of freshly ground pepper and various dried herbs and spices. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, whisk in the flour and then the stock.
