Beef Consommé

Couple of days ago, I finally acquired my own muslin cloth, which means I could finally make a consommé. So I tried my hand at making a beef consommé.

I’m not gonna go through the steps of how to make one here, because I’m sure there are very brilliant ones out there that should be followed. In essence, a consommé is a clear soup made from ground meat, together with mirepoix (pronounced as mɪərˈpwɑ – which is a combination of carrots, celery and onions), tomatoes, egg whites and stock, clarified with egg whites through the process slow simmering, and filtering with muslin.

I have to admit it looks like tea, and that it was an average result. I didn’t degrease it too. In any case, I think I’m very pleased. For a first attempt, that is.
