Two nights ago, I made a roast. Not wanting to waste anything I kept most of the left over beef broth (about 3-4 cups).
My current idea is to turn this beef broth into a soup or a stew. Here's what I was thinking:
- Skim the fat chucks off the top of the broth (left there by the roast)
- For a stew I would add in carrots, celery, onions, garlic, and use a potato to naturally thicken the broth as it cooks.
- For a soup, I would probably just add the vegetables mentioned above minus the potato and then thicken a bit with some cornstarch.
Is this the best way to go about it? Is this a good use of the left over broth?
