Recipe Notes

Beef Broth: I purchased the Beef Broth from Sprout's market. It's a store brand, called "Organic Beef Flavored Broth". It contains 570 mg of sodium per cup (245 gram). 

Better than Beef Bouillon: This is an optional ingredient. You may skip it, just adjust the saltiness according to your taste.
