How do you make your own fake beef broth?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I didn't see any fake beef broth at my local store yesterday and want to make a dish tonight that calls for it. It is for a fake filet mignon.

Anyone have any idea how to create my own?



Thanks

I sometimes use diluted Braggs Liquid Aminos, dried minced onion & garlic powder. It's nice if you carmelize real onions in a pan first....mushrooms are a nice addition too.

I also use carmelized onions (lots of them) in places of recipes that call specifically for a broth that made with oxtail, which gives the broth a pretty rich and sweet taste. It worked pretty well for me.

I usually use Better than Bouillon, No Beef. Sometimes, I use a bouillon powder or Marmite instead.

It is in Fred Meyer which is owned by kroger. BUT for some unexplainable reason, it's over by the almond paste and tubes of icing.



I am NOT about to tell them what it really is for fear they'll upcharge it by another $5 and move it to the "foreign foods" section. Or worse, decide that Bovoril is fine enough and discontinue the stuff completely.



If you have a Kroger-owned store near you, check over by the baking goods section, but look c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y because the jar is pretty hard to spot (in my store, it's almost at the bottom - maybe 1 or 2 shelves up but no higher than that).



Also, regular Worcestershire sauce has anchovies in it, but the Kroger store brand doesn't.

I used a bullion cube called "Not Beef" by Edwards and Sons - I get it at Kroger. It is vegan and very good.

Yep. There just is no end to the many uses of Marmite.

I make mushroom stock to use in place of beef broth. I fill a pot with a few litres of water, two bags of dried mushrooms (variety mix), a bay leaf and some pepper. Bring to a boil, simmer about 30 minutes, strain, and cool. It's very hearty.

I'm sure you know this, but most Worcestershire sauces are not vegetarian. Just in case you didn't know, wanted to give you the heads up
