How To Make Beef Bone Broth

How To Make Beef Bone Broth

By: Dr. Peggy Malone

Maybe you are asking yourself, ‘Why would I want to make bone broth (stock) when all I have to do is open a can or pour hot water over a little cube of spices?’

The answer is in the health benefits…and I think in the taste too…but more importantly, the nutrition and health benefits.

The kind of broth that we are talking about here is your great grandmother’s broth.  It was nutrient dense, delicious and gelatinous like yummy meat jello!  It was an excellent source of minerals and was known to boost the immune system.

You know how we all know to give someone soup when they aren’t feeling well?  The reason for this is because back in the ‘nutrient dense’ day of real food, the broth for soup was made at home with the bones of animals and was full of minerals and nutrients that were necessary for healing.

We still give people soup when they are sick because of this tradition, but they aren’t really getting the same healing benefits when the broth is out of a can or made up of water poured on chemically laden cubes of processed crap.

The health benefits go beyond helping you to feel better when you have a cold or the flu.  Because bone broth is full of collagen, it’s great for your joints, skin, hair, and nails. Bone broth can also aid in healing your digestive system and can help with allergies. 

I make a batch of this healing bone broth every week in my slow cooker and it is so good!

Add roasted bone, onions, carrots and drippings from the pan to a slow cooker or a stock pot and add the remaining ingredients -Cover the contents with enough water so that everything is submerged -If you are using a slow cooker, cook on high for 2 hours then lower the heat to low and simmer for 12-24 hours (I leave mine for about 24 hours) -If you are using a stock pot, bring to a boil and then cover and lower to a simmer for 12 hours

Pour the mixture through a strainer to separate the broth from the solids.

Leftover Solids from Beef Bones

 

Pour the broth through a fine sieve into heat proof jars (I used Mason jars) and refrigerate until you see a layer of fat on the top -You can scoop off the fat and save it to use for cooking (tallow) -The broth should be a jelly like consistency….like awesome meat jello. This is when you know you’ve got a good broth 🙂
