Beef can be used as a base ingredient in many soups. Today, I am going to show you a recipe for a very famous soup known as beef bouillon. This bouillon is a great addition to other recipes and gives a great deal of flavor to the dish.
I am a very big soup fan and I first tried this beef soup on National Soup Day. After trying it, I was so impressed with the taste of this soup that I started to make it at home every weekend. This beef bouillon is very simple to make at home. It is a clear seasoned soup with no solid ingredients. But despite this, this soup is very flavourful in taste.
To make beef bouillon, heat oil in a pan and cook meat in it. Then, add carrots, celery, peppercorns, onion, salt, and cloves to it. Cook it for some time, then reduce the heat to simmer. Then, remove it from heat and cool slightly. With cheesecloth, strain the mixture and refrigerate it overnight. Then, discard the fat and clarify it. Garnish it with lemon zest, then serve.
