I don’t know how long Better than Bouillon has been on the market, but I discovered it about a year ago. Since then, it has been one of my most highly coveted ingredients and a secret addition to alot of recipes I cook. It began with a can. A can of chicken broth, to be exact, and how unsatisfactory the flavors are. A can of chicken broth is nothing more than some water with a bouillon cube dissolved in it, packaged in tin, and sold to a massive audience of people who would potentially enjoy Better than Bouillon. That’s just my opinion, anyway.
Better than Bouillon is a concentrated food paste and comes in a variety of flavors. Concentrated food paste sounds kinda unappetizing, but that is how the manufacturers describe the product. I like to think of it as chicken stock or beef base in a jar. In my grocery store, it is sold near the chicken, and comes packaged in a little glass jar. I have only tried the chicken and beef flavors, and I use them in every recipe that calls for stock. 1 teaspoon of Better than Bouillon in 8 ounces of water equals a can of broth/stock. I add it to soups, marinades, and to the water when making rice. It can be salty, so add it and taste before you salt.
I challenge to you to replace your current beef or chicken stock, cubes, or granules with Better than Boullion! Better than Boullion, FTW! (I have not been hired, pressured, or paid to say this! I just love B.T.B.!)
