Campbell's Real Stock Varieties 1 Litre for $2 (Was $4) in Store @ Woolworths

160

Campbell's stock varities at half price at $2. Big savings here and great time to put some away as the use by is quite long.

Choice of Beef or Chicken in normal or low salt. Also Vegetable, Laska and Dumpling Soup options.

My favourite one is the low salt Beef which I use when I cook a Risotto.

    Never used stock before. Are these any good?

    •  

      I used two litres of the chicken the other day and it was so bland I couldn't believe it.

        I vaguely remember used this stock over a decade ago when I was still learning how to cook as an uni student, results weren't good but can't tell it was me or the product….

    What kind of Risotto? I always use chicken stock (with full strength sodium).

    Also, if you don't enjoy making risotto the traditional way, you can use a pressure cooker with some pretty decent results and minimal effort.

      My recipe is probably a bit odd but I enjoy it. Firstly I fry a diced onion in olive oil with chirizo pieces. I then add 2 cups of aborio rice and mix in oil. I then add 1-2 cups of red wine and stir. Over time I add the stock a ladle at a time which consumes all of 1 Litre of beef stock. The rick requires around 30 minutes to cook. I add some grated cheese right at the end before I end the cooking time. Not your standard Risotto recipe.

        Tasty, not odd. Didn't know there was a "standard Risotto recipe".

        Aborio rice, absorbing stock & wine as it cooks… The basis of risotto.

        Use whatever is on hand & tasty (like chorizo, bacon, onions, garlic, mushrooms, tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, parsley, etc). So many variations.
        Yum!

        Even Jamie Oliver has a chorizo risotto recipe - just a bit fancier.

    I normally get the Coles or Woolworths branded beef one. $1.90 all day every day. Can’t tell any difference between these and the branded one.

      Might need to get your eyes checked, clearly the packaging on the branded one is much nicer.

        Not sure about you but I don’t eat the packaging.

      Could save 11c if buy Aldi, it's probably exactly the same stuff coming from same factory.

    Why use these instead of powder stock? The cost-per-serve is astronomical on these compared to a little tin of powder

    (Nearly same price, 166 serves instead of 4!
    This is $0.50 per cup, Vegeta powder is $0.01 per cup!)

      Powder does not really have much chicken or beef in it*, i.e.:

      Chicken stock powder: Salt, Sugar, Dehydrated Vegetables 11.7% (Celery, Onion, Carrot, Garlic, Parsley Leaves), Maltodextrin, Maize Starch, Yeast Extract, Spices, Flavour (Chicken), Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1%, Dried Chicken Meat Extract 1%, Colour (Caramel I)

      compare that to

      Chicken stock: Chicken Stock (98%), (Water, Chicken, Carrots, Celery, Cabbage, Onions, Parsley, Sage Extract, Natural Antioxidant (Rosemary Extract)), Sugar, Salt, Glucose, Yeast Extract.

      *I've seen some thai-made Knorr chicken powder that actually has some 10% chicken in it but it's not common.

        Paying 50x as much for a bit more chicken seems rich, but I see your point. I'll have to make something with them and see how it turns out.

        Thanks!

          Some stock cubes and powders don't have any chicken or beef at all, it's just all salt and spices. Frankly if you use it often just boil chicken carcass and freeze it, will be way better than anything you can find.

            @DainB: Yeah I get that, but I am typically cooking a chicken dish with chicken stock, or beef dish with beef stock, etc

            It doesn't seem necessary to have a high beef content in the stock I'm adding to a kilo of beef, for instance :P
