Beef Stock

First, this broth turned out wonderful! It is rich and tastes almost like french onion soup.

Here’s what I did:

I found an online recipe for broth by Emeril Lagasse, and used it as a guideline.

Chopped up some veggies

Roasted stock bones (in freezer section at my market) and veggies

beef_stock-2

Pressure cook for 120 minutes

Pour through colander into a bowl

Cover bowl with aluminum foil and let it sit in fridge overnight so fat would rise and solidify.

Next day, skim off fat, pour broth in freezable containers (16oz.) and freeze.

  1. How do you keep from eating the marrow? It would never last long enough to be made into broth around me. Fortunately, they sell what they call dog bones around here. They have plenty of meat left on them and work well in the recipe that I have which is quite similar to LaGasse’s.

    1. LOL. I wanted to get the broth as rich as I could with the few bones I had so I didn’t touch the marrow.
