Brown meat stock is perfect for beef consume’, French onion soup and other clear soups. It is also a great enhancer for braised meat dishes. The secrets to this stock’s success are its rich colour and full flavour, created by caramelising onions and bones before the simmering process begins. But use caution. Burning during the caramelising process will result in bitter tasting stock. The following recipe yields approximately 4litres of brown meat stock.
