Good stock can transform a dish from the ordinary to the exceptional, but making it is a lengthy process. However, if time is not on your side there’s no need to compromise the base of a delicious meal, so here is the stock you would have made yourself if only you did have more hours in the day! Made with a mix of beef bones, slowly roasted onions, garden vegetables and fresh herbs.
This stock has a wonderful depth of flavour making it the perfect starting point for rich sauces, risottos or braising. And for anyone interested in the time-honoured craft of provincial cooking, beef stock is an absolute must.
