I tried out this recipe a week or two ago (as part of the Clean Out The Pantrty Project), and absolutely loved it. It’s a riff on an ATK recipe. I don’t have the patience (or the money – it takes so much meat!) to make homemade beef broth, but it could only improve it.
I used much less meat than the recipe called for, and I don’t think it was a loss at all – the mushrooms go a long way on the umami front, and I would have used even more if I had them on hand.
