I'm going to make short ribs this weekend. The recipe calls for 6 cups of beef stock (in addition to a bottle of wine, of course!). I don't have any beef stock, and in fact, I've read that the canned stuff is pretty bad. But I do have a packet of Savory Choice Beef Demi Glace. Can I dilute the Demi Glace with water and use that instead of the broth? If so, what proportions should I use? (The packet contains 1/2 cup of Demi Glace.)
I know that Demi Glace isn't the same thing as Stock that's been cooked down and reduced, so that's why I'm unsure if this substitution will work. Thanks!
