Beef Broth

Ingredients

• One pound of stew meat (chuck or flank steak) cut into 2-inch chunks

• Olive oil

• One to two medium onions, peeled and quartered

• One to two large carrots, cut into 1-2 inch segments

• One celery rib, cut into one-inch segments

• Two to three cloves of garlic, unpeeled

• A handful of parsley  stems and leaves

• One to two bay leaves

• Ten peppercorns

Instructions – Allergies: SF, GF, DF, EF, NF

Heat oven to 375°F. Rub olive oil over the stew meat pieces, carrots, and onions. Place stew meat or beef scraps, stock bones, carrots and onions in a large roasting pan. Roast in the oven for about 45 minutes, turning everything half-way through the cooking.

Place everything from the oven in a large stockpot. Pour some boiling water in the oven pan and scrape up all of the browned bits and pour all in the stockpot.

Add parsley, celery, garlic, bay leaves, and peppercorns to the pot. Fill the pot with cold water, to 1 inch over the top of the bones. Bring the stockpot to a regular simmer and then reduce the heat to low, so it just barely simmers. Cover the pot loosely and let simmer low and slow for 3-4 hours.

Scoop away the fat and any scum that rises to the surface once in a while.

After cooking, remove the bones and vegetables from the pot. Strain the broth. Let cool to room temperature degree and then put it into the refrigerator.

The fat will solidify once the broth has chilled. Discard the fat (or reuse it) and pour the broth into a jar and freeze it.
