I have 2qts of beef broth in my freezer that needs to get used.  Any suggestions on what to do with it?

KK,

 

I see a few things off hand : You can use it as a base for soup, added to stews and briases or sauces. I view that and chicken broth as liquid gold here....you can never have enough.

demi glace baby!!! fortify it with MORE roasted beef bones and veg, maybe some vino, simmer, strain and reduce reduce reduce. Takes care of the space issue and you end up with a delicious liquid meal enhancer.

I know you're not trying to start an argument about demiglace right?  ;)

Make beef, barley soup with lots of mushrooms.  Bake a loaf of pumpernickel or pain de campagne, and serve with home made butter (made in your food processor or stand mixer).

 

A demi is a great idea, but 2 qts of stock is a lean start.  Whether you use the old fashioned method, a straight reduction, or something in between, after a lot of time and effort, you'd only end up with about 1-1/2 cups of demi.

Update, I decided to do a beef barley and winter veg soup with cubed chuck, vegetables and barley.  It was yum.
