Beef Bone Broth | How to Make Bone Broth
Beef Bone Broth is one of the core recipes to the keto diet. This super easy recipe will become a firm staple in your diet.
With so many “claimed” health benefits bone broth comes with a lot of recommendations when following the ketogenic diet.
An easy recipe that is super versatile and so good to have on hand at all times. Read on to see how to make and also a few great recipes to use our broth in.
A broth can easily be changed to suit your personal taste.
It is also the perfect dish to use up old vegetables and herbs that need to be used before they spoil. I like to season mine with different spices from time to time.
Spices like, turmeric, curry, star anise, cumin and smoked paprika can really change the flavour and fragrance of the broth.
Here is my basic mix of ingredients
1.5 kg mixed beef bones – this can be cooked or raw or a mixture of both.
1 medium carrot
5 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon pink Himalayan salt
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 bay leaves
½ bunch any fresh herbs, roughly chopped (I use parsley and thyme
Other vegetables to use can include; tomato, parsnips, zucchini, pumpkin etc.
HOW TO MAKE BEEF BONE BROTH
A broth is pretty easy to make. With just a couple of steps and a bit of patience you end up with a delicious nutrient dense broth.
First step is to roast the bones and vegetables. Roasting cooks and caramelises the vegetables and bones and gives loads more flavour to your broth.
Next step is to cook low and slow up to 24 hours.
Skim off any nasty suff from the top during the cooking process.
Strain the broth and keep the bones for your next broth.
Store bone broth in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze in individual serves for up 3 months.
