  • Slow Cooker



  • Turn the slow cooker on low and place the marrow bones in the center of the insert.
    2 pounds beef marrow bones
  • Heat tallow or cooking fat in a large skillet over high heat while you cube the roast. Sear the meat on all sides. Cook in batches, if needed. Add cooked meat to the crockpot.
    2 pounds chuck roast, 2 tablespoon beef tallow
  • Arrange the vegetables around and on top of the meat. Add the herbs and season with salt and pepper.
    8 ounces mushrooms, 2 cups cauliflower, 1 large carrot, 1 large onion, 4 cloves garlic, 2 teaspoons dried thyme, 2 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Pour broth in the pot.
    8 cups bone broth
  • Cover with the lid. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or HIGH for 3-4 hours.


  • Use what you have on hand, this recipe is very forgiving! Do you have other vegetables in your fridge that need to get used up? Add them in. Chop the broccoli, zucchini, or cabbage and add to the pot. Parsley, oregano, or rosemary may also be added or substituted.
  • Mind your water line, if you add in a significant amount of extra vegetables, you may need to add more broth or water too.
  • Adapt this recipe for a carnivore diet by simplifying the ingredient list to marrow bones, stew meat, tallow, bone broth, and salt. Decrease the broth to 4 cups. Cook on low. Check after 6 hours. Even better, follow the Carnivore Beef Stew Recipe.
