Broth, also known as bouillon, is a savory liquid made of water in which bones, meat, or vegetables have been simmered. It can be eaten alone, but it is most commonly used to prepare other dishes, such as soups, gravies, and sauces.

The difference is very minimal stock is a liquid with bones only and when you add meat in it it become broth. Broth is cooked for less time as compared to stock as it may harden the meat.

Types of broth-

Broth can be made from any meat and even using by only vegetables or using both meat and vegetables.




  • 1kg to 1/2 kg meat with bone (beef, lamb, chicken…..)
  • 2 celery ribs with leaves, cut into chunks

  • 2 medium onions, quartered
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 8 to 10 whole peppercorns
  • 2 quarts cold water


Method –

Place all ingredients in a soup kettle or Dutch oven. Slowly bring to a boil; reduce heat until mixture is just at a simmer. Simmer, uncovered, for 3-4 hours, skimming foam as necessary.

Set meat aside until cool enough to handle. Remove meat from bones. Discard bones; save meat for another use. Strain broth, discarding vegetables and seasonings. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Skim fat from surface. And use it as required.
