Unfortunately, this stuff is just nasty. I went to 4-5 stores looking for sodium free beef bouillon and the only one I could find was Herb ox. Sure, it doesn't have salt but it has potassium chloride, which is to salt what saccharin is to sugar, complete with horrible aftertaste. I've used this only once, and very sparingly at that, and I'm afraid to use it again lest it ruins my dish! Sorry. I really wanted to like this sauce.
This will be a staple around here. You were right, it doesn't taste like the real stuff, it's lots better! The extra bonus is--No salt!
