There is a difference between beef broth and beef consomme. Both beef broth and beef consomme are a type of broth. Beef broth is made from the juices of boiled beef. The beef broth is allowed to simmer with the meat and bones which adds flavor to the broth. Simmering at lower temperatures adds richness to the taste and helps remove fat from the broth. Beef consomme is a clear beef broth or soup. It is beef broth that has been purified of fat and simmered using a mixture of meat, carrots, celery, onions, tomatoes, and egg whites.
