Knorr & Other International Products - which ones do you use?

I had no idea there were so many items out there by Knorr. I just purchased the Salat Kronung salad dressings. One is Fruhlingskrauter & the other is Wurzige Gartenkrauter. Both dressings are so refreshing. I found out there are many more available, but I have to order online for any other items. Have you tried any of the other Salat dressings?

Has anyone tried the All Purpose Aromat Seasoning? Wonder if that is like Spike seasoning.

Also, I see many packets for adding to soups, stews, etc.

Which ones have you tried? Also, is there a site online that has reasonable shipping costs? So far, I think Amazon is the best, but have not really shopped around.

Perhaps you are using other products besides Knorr that are not normally found in local stores. Please tell us about them.

  1. Knorr-Suisse Chicken base/bullion cubes
    Knorr-Suisse Tomato base

    No Mexican home is without the chicken, nor are most Mexican restaurants. It's the secret ingredient.

      Would you use the Chicken base/bullion cubes just for chicken dishes or what?

      I love Mexican dishes, so this is much appreciated. Thanks.

      1. re: cstout

        Used for rice, mainly, from what I understand.

        1. re: cstout

          It's used in everything. Rice, soup, moles, pipianes, any place you'd use chicken stock/broth

          1. re: DiningDiva

            Well, I must find theKnorr Chicken base real soon. Have always used Better Than Bouillon, but this will be good for a change.

            1. re: cstout

              Better than bullion has better quality ingredients, but therefore its also more expensive.

              1. re: cstout

                It is not a substitute for Better Than Boullion. Tge Knorr Suisse stuff has a high salt content and most likely MSG. It's in everything, more like a spice or seasoning than a stock.

              2. re: cstout

                Addingto DiningDiva's list, it's even added in salsas. It's in *everything,* it doesn't matter if the dish is based on another protein (beef, goat, lamb, etc.) and even in long cooked meaty soups filled with collageny, flavor giving ingredients like bones and shanks and all, there will be some sprinkled in.

                I also have some norsuiza, Knorr Suisse caldo de pollo from Costco and have taken to using it.

              3. re: DiningDiva

                I use both the Knorr Caldo Con Sabor de Pollo and Caldor Con Sabor de Tomato y Chipotle.

              4. To answer my own post, I just purchased a little jar of Truffle & Salt. Brand name is Sabatino Tartufi.

                So far I have only used it on Rib Eye steaks & sprinkled on grape tomatoes. Both were absolutely delicious. I have learned the salt is to be used as a finishing salt more than cooking salt. Uses are endless.

                1. I have Knorr chicken broth powder in my kitchen. I used it today to add a little more flavor to a pot of taco soup. Sometimes I keep the chicken and tomato broth powder on hand; it's good in a pot of black-eyed peas. I like Goya olive oil and adobo seasoning. Dona Maria mole paste is tasty.

                    Knorr chicken broth & tomato broth in black eyed peas - that makes me hungry right now.,

                    Will have to try the Goya olive oil.


                  2. Knorr makes a tamarind soup base that is actually easy to find in my local stores. I grew up on it so I actually prefer its super tart flavor to the milder taste of fresh tamarind.

                      Th Knorr tamarind soup base can be used to make the Vietnamese soup canh chua. A lot of people use it. I had forgotten about that.

                      1. re: luckyfatima

                        I actually wonder who is buying it at the supermarket. The only dishes I know to make with tamarind soup base are Vietnamese and Filipino. Not sure what it's used for in an American context.

                    2. I don't know the brand, but this kalbi marinade my gf's korean mom buys me.

                        I bet that is tasty, always love the bbq pork when I go for Dim Sum.

                        1. re: cstout

                          kalbi is a korean bbq marinade for thinly sliced short ribs. it is different than the chinese marinade used for chau shu bbq pork. there are many recipes for both of these online.

                          1. re: divadmas

                            i used it to marinade a big flank steak a few weeks ago, was awesome.
