For many people, the smell of a hearty, beefy broth is one of the main reasons to cook a pot of it on a cold day.
While most grocery stores and restaurants sell it fresh, there are ways to buy canned or frozen beef broth, as well.
But before you do, you might want to consider this: Is beef broth really ever bad?
If you ask many restaurant chefs, the answer would be a resounding no.
As long as the can or bottle of broth hasn’t gone bad, it’s safe to eat, says Craig Wong, executive chef at Wolfgang Puck’s Spago in Beverly Hills, Calif.
But if it does go bad, Wong recommends throwing it out.
