  1. is this recipe calling for fresh minced onion, or the dried minced onion from the spice aisle? thanks for your help!

  2. i use this to season my beef roast prior to browning. using this instead of salt and pepper adds flavor and gives it great color. then, into the slow-cooker with onions, mushrooms, red wine, beef broth, and cloned cream of mushroom soup.

    auto gravy for the roast. always a hit for entertaining or family.

    • Where is a good place to get bouillon cheap

      walmart online sells augason farms brand bouillon in a #10 can. That’s 5 pounds of bouillon for $22.36. If you use quite a bit of bouillon this is a good price.

      Compared to the smaller 3.25 ounce jars, it’s about 1/2 price. I have a can but have not opened it yet. I use Augason Farms products on a regular basis.

      I just haven’t opened the bouillon yet. If you go to website, their reviews are outstanding. But it’s cheaper if you buy from Walmart.

    Thanks for keeping it as I lost the recipe.
