Chicken Stock & Red Sauce

I have heard more than once,that chicken stock is a secret ingredient in making red tomato sauce. Has anyone ever heard this,or anyone who uses stock in the sauce?

A lot of people like chicken broth in their sauce.

I prefer red wine and maybe a litle beef base.

you are talking about a meat-flavored tomato sauce? I don't put any protein/amino acid in my tomato sauce, I just use good ripe tomatoes and good strong basil leaves

I make a mean sauce without either. If I were to add any additional liquid it might be a little bit of water if things get too thick, but I don't ever do that.

I add some wine and some beef and chicken stock to a long simmering sauce. It adds flavor and the long simmer keeps it from making the sauce too thin.

Jen's approach of adding the beef base avoids the excess liquid issue.

Every time I put my chicken stock (VooDoo stock) in my tomato sauce Kathleen raves about it. She enjoys it without, but seems to be happier with the sauce when I use the stock.

Errmm.. not a lot... I usually do 1 28oz can and use 2 or three cubes. I freeze some stock so it is ready and do it in an ice cube tray. 2 TBL per cube I believe.
