Beef Bone Broth Recipe

"Bone broth has incredible nutritional benefits and is best known for improving digestive health. Make a big batch of this broth and store in the refrigerator to drink anytime or use as a base for your favorite soups and savory recipes. I’ve shared an ultimate homemade broth guide before. However, since I found a place selling decent beef bones here in Austin, I thought I’d show you how to make beef bone broth at home step by step. If you go to a local butcher in your area, with just a few simple ingredients, you can easily make this super food at home with a slow cooker. Here’s how."

NotesIf you’re short on time, you can buy beef bone broth online ( that’s also grass-fed & organic.

Yields6 Quarts

Preparation Time15 min

Cooking Time23 hr 45 min


  • 3-4 pounds of mixed beef bones (oxtail, knuckles, short rib, etc.)
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tablespoon apple cider vinega
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

  2. Place the mixed bones on a baking tray in a single layer and place it into the oven. Roast the bones for 30 minutes. Turn bones over and roast another 30 minutes.

  3. While the bones are roasting, chop the carrots, onions and celery. You are discarding these later so a rough chop works great!

  4. Place roasted bones, chopped vegetables, bay leaf and apple cider vinegar in a 6-quart crockpot. Cover completely with water.

  5. Heat broth on high until it comes to a rapid simmer. Reduce to low heat and simmer for 12-24 hours. Add water as needed to keep all the ingredients covered in water and periodically skim the foam off the top of the pot.

  6. After 12-24 hours, the broth should be a dark brown color. Strain the broth through a fine mesh strainer and discard the bones, vegetables and bay leaf.
