A Brown Stock is one that is brown in color. A brown stock is made from chicken, veal, beef or game bones. The finished stock should have a good flavor, rich dark brown color, good body and high gelatin content. The primary differences between a brown stock and a white stock is that for a brown stock, the bones and Brown Mirepoix are caramelized before being simmered and often a tomato product is added to the stock. These extra steps provide the finished stock with a rich, dark color and a more intense flavor.
