BEEF BONE BROTH RECIPE
*Recipe adapted from "Beef Bone Broth Recipe" by Dr. Axe*
4 pounds beef bones with marrow ( I highly recommend roasting the bones, adding a little tomato paste before roasting adds a great flavor and color to your bone broth).
4 carrots, chopped
4 celery stalks, chopped
2 medium onions, peel on, sliced in half lengthwise and quartered (vegetable scraps works well also. Just save some in the freezer in a bag or container).
4 garlic cloves, peel on and smashed
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon whole peppercorns (fresh ground pepper is fine if you don't have whole pepper corn).
2 bay leaves
3 sprigs fresh thyme
5-6 sprigs parsley (may use dried herbs or spices, I always add a little turmeric and ginger to my broth).
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
18-20 cups cold water (no need to measure, just make sure your bones are completely covered).
Place all ingredients in a 10 quart capacity crock-pot.
Add in water.
Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce and simmer gently, skimming the fat that rises to the surface occasionally.
Simmer for 24-48 hours.
Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
Discard solids and strain remainder in a bowl through a colander. Let stock cool to room temperature, cover and chill.
Use within a week or freeze up to 3 months.
We use bone broth in any recipe that calls for beef broth. We also add bone broth to our four dogs dry dog food.
