Beef Bone Broth in 5 Easy Steps

posted in: Recipes

Make one pot of Beef Bone Broth and it will last all week! There’s so much you can do with broth. I use it most often in soup and braised vegetable recipes. It’s also great for sauces and just drinking hot.

Tips for Homemade Bone Broth

Nose-to-tail eating can have a very important role for our health and is a respectful way to use all the animal, with little to zero waste.

  • Use a mixture of meaty bones, marrow bones, and knuckle bones. Tails and feet are nice too – they will add lots of collagen and gelatin to the broth! (I recommend US Wellness if you don’t have a local source!)
  • Sometimes a fine layer of crust forms, if you see that remove it with a spoon before straining into jars.
  • Tallow rises to the top and will solidify at room temperature. It is an excellent fat for frying and cooking. Your skin will love it too.
  • Broth can usually be stored in the fridge for 3-5 days; freeze for longer
  • If an extra thick tallow cap forms, it can seal the broth below and preserve it for upwards of 2 weeks.
  • Add optional scraps or diced pieces of onion, carrot, celery, rosemary, thyme, oregano, bay leaf, garlic, salt and pepper for extra flavor.
  • I prefer to skip the veg and use a variety of mineral rich salts instead, they are just enough for me
  • Want to make a crock-pot version instead? No problem!
  • Looking for nonstop broth action? Make never-ending beef bone broth!
  • If you’re just not ready to make your own, buy organic, shelf-stable broth from Kettle and Fire and sit on this information for a little longer until you’re feeling inspired

I’ve written about the benefits of beef broth before and enjoy making broth regularly a few times a month, especially when the weather turns cold!

To be clear, even though there are many amino acids, bone broth does not have a complete amino acid profile and therefore is not a complete protein. We do not count the protein found in bone broth toward daily macro intake. Any tallow consumed with the broth should be counted. Tallow has 14 g of fat per tablespoon.

Notes

Classic bone broths are made with onion, carrot, celery, rosemary, thyme, oregano, bay leaf, garlic, salt and pepper. Add what you like.
*Use a mixture of meaty bones, marrow bones, and knuckle bones. Tails and feet are nice too - they will add lots of collagen and gelatin to the broth!
**Roasting is optional. The purpose is mostly to affect flavor although some argue that it allows more minerals to go into the broth. To make the recipe ultra fool-proof, just put fresh bones in a pot and move on to step 2.
Macros: Bone broth does not have a complete amino acid profile and therefore is not a complete protein. We do not count the protein found in bone broth toward daily macro intake. Any tallow consumed with the broth should be counted. Tallow has 14 g of fat per tablespoon.
