What The Difference Between Broth, Stock and Bone Broth?

Let me break down the differences between the three.  They are all related with slight differences.

Broth

Broth is any liquid that has had meat cooked in it. It is made my simmering meat (which can contain bones, but does not have to), and veggies in water for a relatively short amount of time. It is a thin, seasoned, flavorful liquid that does not gel when chilled. It is used for soups and sauces.

Stock

Stock is made by simmering a combination of bones (which typically contain some scraps of meat), and veggies in water. Stock always involves bones, although not necessarily meat. Stock is cooked longer than broth and ends up being a rich liquid, but does not gel when chilled.  It is used for soups, sauces, stews, gravies, and other recipes. Stock is generally not seasoned so it can act as a base to many recipes.

Bone Broth

Bone broth is a hybrid of broth and stock. It is usually made from roasted bones and veggies, but there can sometimes be some meat still attached. It is cooked for a long period of time- the goal is not only to extract the gelatin from the bones, but also to release the nutritious compounds and minerals, like collagen, glucosamine, amino acids, and more. It is then strained and seasoned to be enjoyed like a broth.

Are There Substitutes For Beef Stock?

I love using this beef stock for soups and sauces, but you can substitute a few things in its place in a pinch:

  • Vegetable Broth
  • Chicken Broth
  • Bouillon Cubes
  • Beer or Red Wine

How Do you Store Beef Stock?

I like to store my beef stock in mason jars.  It will keep in the fridge for about 10 days.  You can also freeze your stock.  Just make sure you leave room at the top of your freezer safe container for expansion.

Do I Have To Use Oxtail As The Meat?

No, you can use any meaty beef bone.  Ribs, knuckles, and the tail work great because they contain lots of marrow and collagen,
