Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 8 hours

Total Time: 8 hours 20 minutes

Servings: 6 servings

Equipment

  • Crockpot

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds beef marrow bones

  • 8 ounce mushrooms quartered
  • 2 cups cauliflower chopped

  • Mind your water line, if you add in a significant amount of extra vegetables, you may need to add more broth or water too.
