While strolling through the aisles of Weiland's this morning, Angela spotted a bag of frozen beef bones in the freezer section. Perfect day to make some beef broth!
No secret formula here...somewhere between 12-15 cups of water, 1 tsp salt and pepper, dash of thyme, beef bones, 3 large carrots, inner celery stocks, and 1 onion quartered...throw it in a pot and simmer for 2.5 hours. Afterwards, let it cool, then place in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, I will scrape off the fat layer that forms, then pour the broth into ice cube trays. 1 tray has 16 cubes and it's 2 cups of broth exactly. Makes it easy to portion out for recipes.
Dinner tonight was leftovers and I ended up chowing down the cooked carrots from the broth and nibbling on the cooked bone marrow. Pretty good!
