How to Use OXO Cubes

The history of the OXO cube goes back to 1840, when it was created from an extract of beef to make meat available to those with lower incomes. It is now available in four flavours: beef, chicken, vegetable and lamb. The cubes can be used dry; for example, a chicken cube crumbled over a whole chicken before roasting or a vegetable cube put into a vegetable stir fry. The cubes can also be used to make a soup stock.
