What is vegetable juice?

Recommended Posts

I would like to prepare the beef stew in the slow cooker cookbook and the recipe requires two cups of vegetable juice. Do we have to juice that ourselves? Not interested in buying a juicer for one recipe. Suggestions? Thank you!

Not entirely sure but something like V8 as long as the ingredients were fine is a vegetable juice... Definitely not expecting people to go out and buy juicers, I think if you go down the juice aisle in your grocery store you'll be able to find something.

I just use tinned tomato juice - works great and is 100% compliant (check ingredients though :) ). Stew beef needs some form of acid (that's what you get from veggie juice) to help break down collagen in the slow cooking process so, you could also use a bit of lemon in water or diluted apple cider vinegar if you're not sure about veggie juice.
