Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 24 hours

Total Time: 1 day 5 minutes

Makes: 4 liters

Equipment

  • Stock pot or slow-cooker
  • Strainer
  • Glass jars for storage

Ingredients

  • 6 pounds bones beef, lamb, goat, etc*
  • 1/4 cup raw apple cider vinegar lemon or lime juice
  • veggie and herb scraps optional, see note

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350*. Placing the bones in a roasting pan or glass pyrex, (no butter or oil). Roast for about 20 minutes,** until golden brown (about 20 minutes).
  • In a large pot, add the bones and cover completely with water. Pour in vinegar or lemon/lime juice.
  • Bring to a simmer over low heat and maintain for 24 hours. Do not boil. Keep an eye on the waterline, make sure the bones stay covered with water. Top off as needed.
  • Add optional herbs and veggie scraps like onion, carrot, celery, rosemary, thyme, and/or oregano in the last two hours of the cooking time.
  • Remove from heat and let cool a little. If there is any film on top, skim it off. Strain contents through a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, freeze for longer.

Notes

Classic bone broths are made with onion, carrot, celery, rosemary, thyme, oregano, bay leaf, garlic, salt and pepper. Add what you like.

*Use a mixture of meaty bones, marrow bones, and knucklebones. Tails and feet are nice too – they will add lots of collagen and gelatin to the broth!

**Roasting is optional. The purpose is mostly to affect flavor although some argue that it allows more minerals to go into the broth. To make the recipe ultra fool-proof, just put fresh bones in a pot and move on to step 2.

Easy Boiled Beef Kidney

You’ll be mind blown by how good this easy beef kidney recipe for keto and carnivore diets is! If you want to eat more nose to tail, this 3-step stovetop dish is a great way to normalize the presence of nutrient-dense organ meats in your home.

Prep Time: 6 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 14 minutes
Servings: 4

Equipment

  • small pot with lid

Ingredients

  • 1 beef kidney
  • salt to taste, optional
  • butter best cold, optional

Instructions

  • Fill a small pot with enough water to submerge the kidney.
  • Cover and bring water to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Reduce the heat, add kidney and leave the lid cracked to allow heat to escape.
  • Boil for 8 minutes, monitor the heat so water does not boil over.
  • Remove from heat. Drain water and quickly rinse kidney under cool water if desired.
  • To serve, simply cut into half, medallions or bite-sized pieces. Sprinkle with optional salt to taste and eat with cold butter ad libitum.

Notes

The fat is excellent and should be left on.

Cooking time may vary due to the size of kidney. I cook the average beef kidney for 8 minutes, extra-large ones may go for as long as 10 minutes. Lamb, sheep, and goat kidneys are smaller, typically I only boil them for 4 to 5 minutes or so.

You want the kidney to boil for the full cooking time. Regulate temperature by adjusting the flame and setting the lid more or less cracked (open) to find the sweet spot of boiling but not boiling over.

Egg Drop Soup

2 cups chicken or beef broth

2-3 eggs

1 tsp salt

½ tsp garlic powder

½ tsp vinegar (optional)

½ tsp coconut aminos (optional)

½ tsp ginger (optional)

¼ tsp white pepper (optional)

Heat your broth and seasonings to a rolling boil.

While your broth is heating up whisk eggs in a separate bowl or cup.

Once your broth is boiling, pour whisked eggs in while stirring the soup. Keep stirring so the egg does not cook into large chunks. Turn heat off.

Let cool and enjoy.

You can also add cooked chicken or shrimp if you want more protein.

Dairy Free Gravy

¼ cup drippings from a pan after cooking roast, turkey, chicken, etc

1 cup broth liquid

1 whole egg

1 egg yolk

2 Tbs gelatin

1 Tbs cool water

1/2 tsp garlic

1/2 tsp onion powder

Salt to taste

Let broth and drippings mixture simmer and reduce for about 10 minutes.

Sprinkle the gelatin over the 2 Tbs cool water and let bloom for a few minutes.

Pour the eggs into a blender and begin to blend the eggs.

While the eggs are still blending, pour in about ½ cup of broth as well as the bloomed gelatin.

While continuously whisking the broth on the stove, pour the egg, gelatin and broth mixture back into the pot.

Keep whisking and cook on medium-low heat for about 5 minutes or until it starts to thicken up.

Remove from heat and let cool 5 minutes before serving so it can thicken up a little more.

Enjoy with roast beef, roasted turkey or chicken!

 

This also reheats well, too. Once cooled it will be solid jello. Just scoop into a small pot and reheat on medium-low.

Tartare

12 ounces of lean beef (tenderloin, round, flank, sirloin, rump roast, etc)

2 tsp brown or dijon mustard

1 tsp balsamic or apple cider vinegar

1 tsp salt

2 egg yolks (optional)

If you want to dice the meat very very tiny, freeze meat for about 20 minutes.

Then remove from freezer, slice into thin strips, then dice into tiny cubes.

In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Serve tartare in a bowl.

Serve by making a small dip in the top of the tartare mound and gently place the egg yolk on top. 

Enjoy right away, leftovers do not hold well as the meat gets mushy with the marinade.

Don’t just limit yourself to beef, try this with other red meats like lamb, bison or even elk!

Loaded Scrambled Eggs

8 eggs

1 pound sausage

4 pieces of bacon, chopped

2 ounces of your favorite cheese or cottage cheese (optional)

½ tsp salt

½ tsp black pepper

1 tsp butter or tallow

 

Saute and crumble your sausage in a large pan.

Whisk eggs with salt and pepper.

Turn heat down to medium-low.

Add butter to the pan with the sausage and then pour in the whisked eggs.

As the eggs are cooking add in chopped bacon pieces.

Continue to stir and cook until the eggs are cooked to your liking.

If using cheese, stir in or top off with cheese once your scramble is finished cooking.
