Oh man! That looks good!

Can I ask what beef base is? I don't know the difference between base, stock, broth... all those cooking terms....

Thanks! Even though I'll have to change it a bit for us by subbing in chicken broth & sweet Italian "turkey" sausage, I'm sure it will be just as delicious.

Oh - one question: Is the sausage in the casing & sliced, or out of the casing & crumbled?

Uncle Bob, Take your time and enjoy your Bloody Mary. I'm in no hurry as jkath has not arrived yet either.

pacanis, I get mine at Costco and it's McCormick brand. I have seen other brands in the grocery store. It's in the soup isle usually next to the chicken stock. It a paste and you add water to make stock. It comes in beef or chicken.

Sounds good BreezyCooking. The sausage is in the casing, I remove the casing and just crumble it and fry it like hamburger.

I see, so you can add beef flavor without all the liquid associated with broth. Thanks
