Beef broth goes well with most food. Beef broth is made from simmered brisket and shank. To ensure a tasty broth, select fresh beef. When cooking with more than 300 g of beef, soak the beef in water for 1 hour to draw out the blood. When the beef is less than 300 g, clean off the blood with cotton cloths and boil in water, and skim the foam while boiling. When the beef is well-done, remove it from the pot and strain the broth through cotton cloths. The beef may be served as pressed meat, or shredded into soup.
