Beef Broth 3 Ways
Bone broth is one of the healthiest and easiest ways to pack in nutrients and heal the lining of the gut. Bone broth contains calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, collagen, and amino acids. Broths are used for soups, stews, or gravies. Many are now even drinking it in their coffee mugs (with or without coffee!).
- 2-7 lbs. of bones (or soup bones with meat)
- 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
- Chopped root vegetables: carrots, celery, onion, garlic, or even turnips, radishes, potatoes
- 1-2 bay leaves
- fresh or dried spices: sage, oregano, thyme
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon whole peppercorns
Method 1: Roast and Stove-top
Throw your bones and vegetables ingredients onto a roasting pan and roast 20-40 minutes (depending on amount) at 400 degrees. Roasting gets the juices flowers and loosens the meat and marrow from the bones. It also brings out a deeper taste. Transfer into a stock pot with 1/2 gallon of water, adding your spices, salt, peppercorns, and ACV. Add a cup of water to the roasting pan, to allow it to soak up the juices from the pan. Scrub pan lightly with wooden spoon or spatula, and all this goodness into the pot, as well.
Bring to a boil, and then allow to simmer for 4-6 hours. Skim off the fat (if you wish!), and strain out the vegetables (which you can consume).
Method 2: Stove-top only
Toss all the ingredients into a stock pot. Bring to a boil, and then allow to simmer for 12-24 hours. Skim off the fat (if you wish!), and strain out the vegetables (which you can consume).
Method 3: Pressure Cooker
Add all the ingredients into your pressure cooker, and cook on low for 2 hours.
Of course, if you are an InstaPot person, you can find lots of those recipes online. Skim off the fat (if you wish!), and strain out the vegetables (which you can consume).
In the video, I share a recipe by Lynsday Stoker, one of our customers, of how she uses the soup bones extra meat when she makes broth. After cooking the broth, she moves the meat to a skillet with tallow (you could use butter) and simmers on low with one cup of broth, shredding with a fork. She adds taco seasoning and serves as barbacoa. You could also add a few more spices and serve as a pot roast with the broth veggies, on rice or mashed potatoes. It is rather tasty, as you can see!
I hope you enjoy the video, and find the courage to start making easy bone broth at home!
