Bone Broth Nutrition
Bone broth stock could be called “nature’s multivitamin.” How so exactly? It’s packed with:
- over 19 easy-to-absorb, essential amino acids and non-essential amino acids (the building blocks of proteins)
- collagen/gelatin, which help form connective tissue
- nutrients that support digestive functions, immunity and brain health
Did you get that? Bone broth benefits literally every part of your body, from your gut to your brain, muscles and ligaments.
Don't know how to make beef broth. Here is a way that you can make it!
Begin by roasting your soup bones. I like to set my oven to 375ºF and bake my bones and meat for about 30 minutes, or until they begin to brown.
Transfer the roasted meat and bones to a crock pot or large pot. Make sure you add any drippings from the roasting pan to the slow cooker as well.
Adding veggies to your stock boosts the flavor as well as the minerals. I really like onions, carrots and celery as a base. You can also save woody mushroom stems to add to the broth. Fresh herbs make a lovely addition as well. You can even throw in eggshells for added calcium!
You only need to give the veggies a rough chop. Plop them in the slow cooker or large pot with the meat and bones.
Add water to cover.
It’s great to add an acidic medium to the broth. This helps to break down the bones. You can use vinegar, lemon juice, tomato products, or even wine (red would be best for beef broth).
I also like to add salt at the beginning of the cooking process. I think it helps with the flavor. But don’t get too carried away! The broth will concentrate as it cooks. You can always add more at the end. Or you can omit it entirely and wait to add salt until you make a soup with the broth.
Set your crockpot or large pot on low. Gently simmer the broth for 6-24 hours. Make sure to skim off any scum that appears on the surface of the broth!
If you’re in a pinch, you can simmer for a shorter time, but less flavor and minerals will be extracted from the bones.
During the last 10–20 minutes of cooking time, add any fresh herbs you’d like to use to the crockpot. I think parsley adds a wonderful flavor, but I’m sure thyme would be lovely as well.
Strain your broth, you can use a strainer for this.
Make sure you save any meat from the bones! I shredded mine and used it to make a very tasty beef stew.
Broth will keep for up to a week in the refrigerator, or several months in the freezer. You can also can it in canning jars in a pressure cooker. Bone stocks or broths needs to be pressure canned at 10 lbs. of pressure; 20 minutes for pints, 25 minutes for quarts
Now you know the fabulous process of making your own beef broth. You definitely need to give it a try if you never have! Your house will smell amazing, and you’ll be making some of the tastiest soups and stews ever.
