This sounds like a great recipe. I have greatly enjoyed so many of your posts in the past. I do have one question. When you say 4 cups of beef bouillon, does that mean 4 cups of beef broth? I am only aware of bouillon in either cube or granulated form. Is there something else? Thanks for any insight you can give.
