Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil; spread beef bones out on prepared baking sheet.

  • Roast bones in the preheated oven until browned, 25 to 30 minutes.

  • Place carrots, celery, onion, garlic, peppercorns, and bay leaves in a slow cooker. Place roasted bones over vegetables; pour in enough cold water to cover bones. Add apple cider vinegar and kosher salt.

  • Cook on Low for 8 hours. Pour broth through a fine-mesh strainer into a bowl and discard any strained solids.

Cook's Notes:

You can skim the froth that forms at the surface of a stock as it cooks, but there's no real reason to do so. Do this only if you must have a clear broth. Otherwise, keep it in and garner the health benefits.

You can also remove the congealed fat that forms at the top when the stock is cooled. If the bones are from grass fed and pastured animals, the fat will be healthy for you. Your call.
