Beef Broth

I know. It doesn't sound exciting. Who wants to make beef broth? Great food begins with great ingredients. Making your own broth is an excellent way to have the best tasting food around. Follow these easy steps and your way to some savory broth (And for you official people this is more like a stock than a broth, still tastes good...).

3 beef marrow bones (or any other beef parts, feet, ect.)
Stalk of celery
6 carrots
1 large onion
pinch of salt
2-3 bay leaves
2 cloves garlic
8 cups water

  1. Chop celery and carrots.
  2. Add marrow bones, vegetables, and the rest of the ingredients to a crock pot.
  3. Cook for 8-12 hours. The more it cooks the more it will concentrate the flavor. As you cook it water will steam off which means the flavor is being condensed into an ever decreasing amount of water.
  4. Let cool.
  5. Strain out the big pieces using a colander.
  6. Filter the broth by running it through something that can remove the remaining little pieces.
  7. Using a baster put broth into ice cube trays.
  8. Freeze.
  9. You now have 1 oz pre measured frozen beef broth ready to use anytime!
  10. Enjoy by using this for French Onion soup!
