Intensely Meat-Flavored Sorbet (or Ice Cream)

sufunsified | Aug 16, 201312:35 AM     7

Hello all,

I'm attempting to create meat-flavored sorbet for an exhibition. The idea is to create something that looks as if it could be fruit-flavored (using artificial dye is fine) but instead delivers a strong taste of beef, chicken, pork, bacon, chorizo, or whatever. Above all, the idea is that it must be surprising, while still being tasty.

I had some success using beef bouillon cubes, but they have that disgusting "dusty" artificial taste. I made a batch each of chicken, pork and beef consomme, but their flavor is so delicate I doubt they will taste like much of anything when turned into sorbet.

Though I don't have an ice cream maker, recipes or hints for meat-flavored ice creams would also be appreciated! I've found a roast beef ice cream and Blumenthal's bacon ice cream, but not much else.

Any brilliant ideas as to how to make meaty-sweet frozen treats? Would turning the beef stock into beef jus work? Infusing meat in vodka and adding that to the sorbet?
