    Ok, I have now bought it for a recipe and am wondering what are your favorite ways to use this?

    Is it just another kind of soy sauce?

    Hi Michelle...I find it is saltier then a soya sauce. In Holland it was easy to buy but I have a problem buying it here in England...have not found it yet.

    In Holland it is mainly used in soup...the bottle is always on the table when you serve soup.
    In the Indonesian and Chinese restaurants in Holland it is also always on the table.

    So being Dutch, I use for soup but I also always use in stir-fries and it is a must when I make egg-fried rice

    I grew up in Germany and soft boiled eggs for breakfast (served in those cute little egg cups) are often served. You shake in some Maggi and Pepper and I still eat them that way!
    I have wondered about the Soy sauce connection, since Maggi has been used in Germany forever, but I know that soy beans had not been grown there. It tastes a lot like soy sauce, but I think the formulation must be different.

    Dear community members, sorry for my worst english, I hope you're able to understand.

    Dear and warm cooking greetings from Germany,

    please compare our german"Maggi Würze" with your "Coca Cola"...

    The recipte is very, very secret. icon_wink.gif

    Whenever you used dark soy-sauce with a little bit salt and a plant, which in Germany is known as "Maggi-Kraut", you reach the same taste.

    O God... I never thought, that my first post in a us-commonity includes the word "Kraut"... icon_redface.gif

    Maggi is already a flavour enhancers. The generations of my mother and grandmother used it - drop for drop - only for stews and soups.

    I heard also, that anyone took Maggi on his egg at breakfest.

    I tried - but only for one time... icon_sad.gif

    Dear greetings

    Dear Members,

    I hope you don't believe, that I'm arrogant. I allways have a bottle of Maggi Würze in my refrigator, but it's not a revelation.

    Maggi is the taste of the time, when Elvis landed in Bremerhaven or the Beatles played first in Hamburg.

    Sometimes I like it. icon_cool.gif

    Best regards

    I've always used Maggi in soups.
    Pets R Us, you may be able to find it in Asian groceries if there are no German delis

    Sometimes it's used in salad dressings, too. If you can understand some German, have a look at the maggi website for recipes:
    www.maggi.ch/de/wuerze/archiv.asp

    That stuff was invented as a cheap replacement for meat extract.

    That's right, I always use a drop or two in my salad dressings! (Sometimes I wait untill everybody else has finished and add a generous splash of Maggi on the leftover salad... love it!! icon_redface.gif )

    It smells like "Lovage" (Levisticum officinale) - or in German: Liebstöckel".

    But there's no Lovage in it... icon_eek.gif

    A few drops in stews, eggs, soups or salad are okay, but Maggi have a very intensive taste. Be careful.

    Best regards from Germany

    It rather is, but I like to use it in marinades. I also like to use it on pot roasts after browning to bring out the flavor.

    My mom always put some in her German potato salad (which I'm looking at recipes here and hoping something rings a bell) icon_wink.gif

    Maggi-Würze is just wheat extract with a lot of MSG, salt and artificial flavours thrown in. It's supposed to have sort of a meaty taste. My German father-in-law is addicted to the stuff!
