What is Stock?

Posted on: Wednesday, January 2, 2008

Stock is a flavoured liquid and it forms the basis of many dishes (ex: sauces & soup). Stock is prepared by simmering various ingredients in water, including some or all of the:

  1. Bones (chicken, pork or beef)
  2. Mirepox (combination of onion and carrots or some other vegetables)
  3. Herb and Spices (ginseng roots or wolfberry)

There are 3 basic traditional soup stock in the chinese cuisine and they are:

  1. Superior broth/stock (dark tan broth made from jinhua ham and chicken)
  2. Chicken broth/stock (basic broth in creating most chinese soup)
  3. White broth/stock (lightly blanched pork bones that have been boiled for several hours, creating a white milky broth)
