Menudo without tripe or pigs feet

How would you go about making this? I've made it only once before using pork roast, chicken broth, onions, garlic, hominy and the menudo spice packet. Hubby said it tasted like what he grew up with but it's been 25 years since he's had any. To me it tasted like it was missing something.

I'm making it tonight and was thinking maybe I should add some beef broth? The only kind I have are those little containers of concentrated knorr broth/boullion.

Any tips? And can anyone explain to me what it is supposed to taste like? The stuff I made just made me think of watered down chili. It wasn't what I would call a rich broth. And should it be just stuffed full of meat? Or is it a brothy type soup in general?
