Recipe Notes

  • Store the beef broth in the fridge for up to seven days, in the freezer for three to six months or in a deep freezer for up to a year. If you are freezing in glass jars allow for expansion.
  • Go to the meat department of your grocery store or favorite butcher shop to get beef bones.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Rub the tomato paste all over your vegetables and bones. Separate into two roasting pans or baking sheets and roast the raw bones and the veggies for an hour until everything is roasted dark brown.
  2. Put the roasted bones, vegetables and apple cider vinegar into a 20-quart stock pot or split among two large stock pots. Fill with room-temperature filtered water to cover the bones by an inch or two. Allow the acidic water mixture to rest for about 30 to 60 minutes. This allows the vinegar to extract minerals from the bones.
  3. Add the bay leaf, thyme, parsley, and peppercorns to the pot. Bring to a simmer and allow to sit for 24 to 36 hours. DO NOT BOIL. Boiling will pull any impurities out of the bones and into the broth.
  4. Strain the broth over a strainer lined with cheesecloth into a singular pot. Discard the solids.
  5. Cool and chill the stockpot overnight. Remove the pot from the cooler and gently remove all the solidified fat gathered at the top of the stock pot. Discard.
  6. Pour the broth into glass jars or freezer bags. (See Recipe Notes.)
