Perfect Beef Bone Broth

• Tags:

As we head into the fall, it’s time to bring out the crockpot and prepare for a season of soups and stews. A must-have starter for all of those dishes is a hearty beef bone broth. While they are readily available in most stores, making your own is simple, cheap and gives you peace of mind knowing exactly what ingredients it contains.

Ingredients

  • 3lb beef marrow bones; grass-fed
  • 2 onions, roughly chopped
  • 2 carrots, roughly chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, roughly chopped
  • handful of thyme stalks
  • splash of apple cider vinegar

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400f. Place bones on an oven sheet, roast for one hour.
  2. While the bones roast, chop the onions, carrots, celery, and put into the slow cooker along with the thyme stalks. Fill the cooker 3/4 full with fresh filtered water.
  3. Once the bones have finished roasting, allow them to cool. When cooled, place in slow cooker and throw in a good glug of apple cider vinegar – this helps to draw more goodness from the bones. Leave for one hour.
  4. Turn on cooker to low and cook for 480-72 hours, depending on your time restraints. The longer you can leave it, the better!
  5. Once finished, strain the broth and let it come to room temperature. You can now freeze or refrigerate the broth.
  6. Toss the vegetables out and save the bones for one more broth.
