I read all the comments on the link you gave Uni, so many questions from posters.  How does it taste and what did you use it for.  If you want tomato soup would you add crushed tomatoes or tomato juice in place of the water.  Mushroom soup, add sauteed mushrooms?  Sounds interesting and the MSG point everyone raised wouldn't be applicable in our case if we used our homemade stock powder.

it taste nice JD but i dont know what the real thing should taste like

i am thinking of doing  a mushroom  sauce to pour over some fillet steak or veal schnitzel

i think you just add it to the soup or sauce as is  towards the end of the cooking time

next time i will leave the powder out and just add veg stock with the water

Uni,  THANK YOU .  Made some.  Bl...y amazing.  I was a bit worried as the US tablespoons are different to ours.  But your conversion is brilliant.  I used the chicken stock powder that I made from Tenina's recipe,  although mine has a lot more chicken it it.   The dried onions I used are the dried fried from the Chinese shop.  I was going to make a chicken  and mushroom pie for lunch ,  and this is a perfect base.

Judy's question,  I will gently cook the mushrooms  and add cooked chicken and sauce with a little Thyme.  Cover with mashed spuds.
Think it would take curry and Sea Food.

Could be used in the recipes in 4 ingredients.

Uni,  no mucking around when hungry DH is looking for lunch ;D
I added some frozen peas to the pie mix.  Took some photos.

Also forgot to say,  I zapped the onion and chicken powder before i added the rest of ingredients.
Thanks again.

Did you mean blitzed in the TMX Chookie - I always say zapped if I use the microwave.

How easy was that to make your pie once you made the SOS mix  8) - I'm sure you will document further usage of this recipe here in this thread.

Yes Judy, blitzed in the TMX.
Uni, I have frozen the lot as my chicken stock had been frozen and wasn't perfectly dry. I made it initially without the salt but it needed it.  I love white pepper so added this.  I think it needs both.
Tonight I am going to use it as a base for mustard sauce for corned beef.  Will report.
I use a lot of chicken stock so think for us the chicken will be more useful.
Tomorrow i am going to give some of the powder S.O.S to a friend who is a really good cook and see what she thinks.
The sauce and mushrooms was nice and could be used as a sauce for chicken , sausages or steak.

have made the Mustard sauce.  Just added 2 teaspoons of French Mustard to the standard cooked mix,  Mixed on sp. 3 for a few seconds.  (Temeraire )  Mustard.

Note ,,be careful of the amount of additional flavourings as it seems to take on the flavour very well.



       handy measure,  the TMX cap when full is 1/3 of a cup/

Have search for recipes,  3 Ingredient book,,,,,,, useless
4 Ingredient book has 6 recipes, 4 look OK.
Google not much help.
Because the chicken flavour isn't all that strong,  you could probably use fish stock if making a seafood dish or sauce.

I decided to try this with some leftover roast pork from lunch.  I made double the batch of the SOS mixture exactly as Uni has written.  I'll be storing this in the freezer.

I then sauteed 160g sliced large button mushrooms in the TMX 5 mins/varoma/reverse/speed 1/MC off.
Added 160g frozen, diced mixed vegies, the combined SOS mixture and 1.25cups water.
Cooked 9 mins/90o/reverse/speed 2.5 as per uni's instructions.
Added 1 cup diced cooked pork.

However, my mixture was way too thin so I then mixed up an additional 3 tblspns cornflour with a little water, added it to the bowl and cooked a further 2 mins/100o/Reverse/speed 1.  The thickness was then perfect.

I used wheaten cornflour, do you think if I had used pure cornflour it may have been thick enough in the first instance without adding an additional amount?

You can certainly taste the pepper, it's not really too strong but I think for kids you may need to cut it back a bit.
Haven't decided whether I am going to put a puff pastry top on it or mashed potato for a meal tomorrow.

Thanks for finding this one Uni, I can see it being a very useful ingredient to have on hand.  Great for Christmas hampers too.

There are some recipes on busycooks.com for which this recipe could replace the can of soup in the ingredients.
