Beef Bone Broth in 5 Easy Steps

Nourish your body with a slow-cooked Beef Bone Broth rich with immune-supporting, gut-healing properties. Make one pot of Beef Bone Broth and it will last all week! There’s so much you can do with it from soup to braising to simply sipping hot.

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.
