Thanks for the kind words @epicurious! “The Best Beef Broth: Brodo
Like any good stock, Brodo is gelatinous when chilled. And all that gelatin is what gives this bone broth its exemplary body. When heated, it has a rich, velvety texture and deep, beefy flavor with dynamic undertones, including a hint of tomato and warm black-peppery spice.
One thing that makes Brodo really stand out is a prominent note of ginger, and while that is not a traditional ingredient in classic French broths and stocks, it's a frequent player in many other broths like those you might want to use for Japanese ramen or Vietnamese pho. But you don't need to feel limited: when senior editor Maggie Hoffman recently made French onion soup using a package of Brodo, she said it was "the most amazing, full-flavored French onion soup" she'd ever simmered. You'll either like the hint of ginger or you won't; we are into it, especially as part of such a rich, intensely flavored broth.
This is also our pick for the most ready-to-go, heat-and-drink option on the roster, in case you're into drinking bone broth straight because you're on a keto or paleo diet or you just really like broth. One of our staffers even left the tasting room, only to come back with a coffee mug and pour herself a cup before heading back to her desk. We've been seeing Brodo at more and more grocery stores; you can also get it cheaper online if you subscribe to a recurring mailing.”
