  • Question About A Recipe

    I am going through my cookbooks at home to see if I can find some new recipes to make. In a Paula Deen cookbook that I have, it has a recipe for Marinated Cornish Hens and I am not sure about an ingredient that was in there. Here is the recipe:

    Marinated Cornish Hens:

    2 split Cornish hens
    1 onion, diced
    1 clove garlic, minced
    8 T. (1 stick) butter
    One 10-3/4 oz. can beef broth
    1 bay leaf
    1/4 tsp. dried thyme
    2 T. sherry
    Salt & pepper to taste
    16-oz.s fresh mushrooms, diced

    Wash, pat dry, and salt and pepper hens. Place in long, flat baking dish. Saute onion & garlic in butter. Add remeining ingredients except the mushrooms. Stir & pour over hens; cover & refrigerate overnight. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add mushrooms and bake for 1 hour, basting frequently. Serve with wild rice.

    Variation: Chicken can be substituted for Cornish hens.

    My question is this: Do you think it should be chicken broth instead of beef broth?

    Probably not. Maybe the beef broth brings on a special flavor. I'd follow the recipe.

        The beef broth will probably just give the recipe a richer flavour but I don't think the recipe would be ruined if you used other broth.
