I am cooking braised short ribs and recipe calls for beef stock, is using beef BROTH a bad idea? Will it ruin the recipe?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
It should work fine just not quite as intense a flavor.
Remember using a canned product will be loaded with salt, and as it cooks away the saltiness will intensify - ease back on adding salt until cooking is finished. I normally cook without salt and use a good sea salt as a top-dressing on the plate.
how about just using red wine? that's how i braise my short ribs and they are always AMAZING! something hearty that you would love to drink with the meal...like a nero d'avola from italy or a south american malbec. both are reasonably priced and would work really, really well for a braise. i find stocks & broth to be too salty for a braise.
Beef short ribs really, really benefit from a good stock. Given the work involved, my opinion is beef broth won't compliment the dish and give it the rich flavor. Bigpan says it very well. Susanm gives a great alternative. When my daughter makes her beef short ribs she uses veal stock and wine!
