Pork Stock
“an interesting flavor"


In the world of the broths there is the fish broth , the chicken broth and many more broths... but the pork stock almost nobody knows it, since it is used very little in the cuisine.

But the fact that it is not used doesn’t mean that is bad, in fact it has a very interesting flavor. This stock
is only used in soups that are prepared with pork and it serves to accentuate its flavor – like the pozole.

*Remember that a stock is not a
soup nor a cream. The broth can be seen as a flavored water or as a base ; used to prepare diverse dishes.
