Simply so, can you use beef stock in chicken soup?
The problem with making chicken soup with beef broth is the overall flavor of what you are trying to create. If you want a flavor closer to the classic chicken soup, I would dilute the beef broth by half (1 cup broth to 1 cup water) at the very least.
Likewise, can you use beef stock instead of broth? Yes, broth and stock are interchangeable in most recipes. It is not uncommon for people to use chicken stock and broth to substitute for beef. If you need to do this, your soup or dish will have a slightly different flavor.
Beside above, what can beef stock be used for?
Beef broth is the flavorful liquid made by simmering beef, vegetables, and aromatics. It's used as a base for soups and is added to stews and braises and also sauces. Homemade beef broth is usually preferred, but the store-bought variety is more convenient for most people.
How do you make beef stock from scratch?
The basic components of beef broth are beef bones, vegetables, an acidic ingredient (vinegar, lemon juice, etc.), salt, and water to cover. Simmer the broth gently for 6-24 hours. Skim off any scum. Add fresh herbs in the last 10-20 minutes.
