Trying to make soup with yucky bone broth
Hey all...

I made a bone broth a couple weeks ago with chicken and beef bones. It's totally gross... But I figured maybe I could make a soup with it anyways.

I'm making a cheeseburger chowder, but no matter what I put in it, it still has a very strong broth-y taste. I'm only using heavy cream, beef, salt, and cheese as my other ingredients. Should I cut it with some water? I don't want it to get too watery.

I've never really made it with both chicken and beef bones. I hope somebody else comes in and helps 'cause I would toss it.

What do you mean by brothy taste? Did you use something like ACV and maybe too much?

what's gross about it?

I didn't use too much acv. I'm always careful not to use too much.

I don't know how to explain the gross taste. I think there was a ton of bone marrow in it from the chicken bones, since I was reusing them. The beef bones were soup bones with a lot of marrow in them too. Maybe that's it?

I would dilute your bone broth with water or use less of it in your soup recipe and see if this solves the problem. Does it taste spoiled?

I know the flavour you are talking about--I agree that it is from the marrow. I only get it from beef or veal bones, not chicken. I would probably add some prepared stock paste to compensate. I really like the "better than bouillon" brand.

it will increase tye carbs but I'd be willing to bet some canned tomato product would help. Not too much though.

Did you salt it? Unsalted stock tastes very bland and yucky.
