A question about a recipe: Secret Ingredient Beef Stew

36181452 fca1 46c5 953f 59f2cece4978  020910f 0752

I have a question about the recipe "Secret Ingredient Beef Stew" from SmallKitchCara. I don't have any homemade beef stock on hand and wondered, if you used store bought, what brand is best...I know low sodium is a must.
Thanks, Eydie

Per a Cook's Illustrated taste test done about a year ago, the Rachel Ray beef stock was the winner. It's also a low sodium product, and doesn't contain any funky additives. Per her website it can be purchased at Wal-Mart.

I like Pacific Nature low sodium. I've never seen the Rachel Ray brand anywhere!

I second the Pacific Nature vote.

Thank you for that. Pacific Nature is usually what I use. But prefer homemade.

Colavita makes the Rachel Ray stock, which is quite good. It's turning up in more markets.
