Knorr Homestyle Stock--Review

    With Knorr® Homestyle Stock, you’ll find:
  • The most carefully selected ingredients slowly simmered to perfection.
  • Versatility for a multitude of dishes, from soups to skillets to sides.
  • A better value than cartons or cans – each tub makes 3-1/2 cups of broth.
  • Two great varieties for adding rich flavor to dishes with either the chicken or beef flavors.

I received the chicken stock for my review.  From watching the commercials on tv, I expected the tubs to be larger.  I was surprised to see that they are relatively small.  They pack a lot of flavor though!

It so happened that I was already cooking a chicken for homemade chicken and noodles the day the Knorr Homestyle Stock came in the mail.  Great timing!
I don't generally add stock to my homemade chicken and noodles.  I just use the stock made from cooking the chicken.   Everyone always loves it when I make chicken and noodles.....they loved them even more when I added the Knorr Homestyle Stock to the pot too!  It really gave the chicken and noodles a great hearty taste.  Half of the  batch is in the freezer for a later meal.


Here is a photo of the chicken and noodles before serving:
 

Included in my campaign kit was a packet of recipes.  Thy all sound great, but we couldn't wait to try the Super Easy Sweet Potato Mash.  (Half of these are also in the freezer for a later meal)
Here is the recipe:

Who would have thought about using stock in sweet potatoes.    Here is the picture of our finished product:


My daughter was hungry for stuffing one night.  She used the stock in with bread crumbs and made it herself.  I ate more of it than she did, it was so good!

What will be make with our last tub of the Knorr Homestyle Stock?  I really don't know.  There are a lot of great recipes on the website.  I want to try several of them using the beef stock as well.  Click the links to find out even more information and take a look at the recipes too.
