Beef Stock

Broth or Stock or Brodo and Bouillon in French.

Bone Broth is a new word for 'Home-Made Stock'.

Roasted animal bones simmered for a long time (12 or more hours, or 4 hours in joy of cooking, 24-48 hours in Paleo diet makes it easier to digest the collagen, gelatin, glucosamine).

Usually but not always meat-based: bones, vegetables, fragrant herbs are simmered in water.

Consomme is Bouillon that has had egg whites added to collect the excess fat and sediment from the broth.

Bouillon can refer to dry cubes of concentrated flavorings that are reconstituted into stock with water.

Soup is started with stock or broth with added ingredients: diced or cubed vegetables, hunks of meat, beans, grains and any spices and herbs, I only suggest flavor profiles to get you started, but the add-ins are limitless.

most recently known as:
Roasted Bone Broth
with Crock Pot option

Bone Broth is the rage, it's as old as the hills (also known as 'stock') and cheap, cheap, cheap. It becomes consomme when strained and bullion when dried or frozen. Served at consomme on European Cruise Ships a few hours before lunch, this is light and satisfying and extremely healthy because it's filled with minerals which are good for your bones and the gelatin is good for your joints.

Rich in flavor and nutrition, this light and satisfying BASIC is the cornerstone in every style of cooking all over the world.

Great as a basic liquid ingredient for all non-vegetarian soups; great for cooking grain in place of water; great for simmering meats in stews; great as the liquid in sauces.
Serve hot or chilled.

For PHO (pronounced fah) serve with a big bowl of fresh ingredients to be added at the table:

Fresh bean sprouts, jalapeno slices, cilantro, Thai basil, mint, sriracha if you like it hot!


1. Preheat the oven to 400º F.

2. Arrange the oxtails and bones on a baking sheet and rub all of the pieces with the tomato paste. Roast the bones until very brown in spots, about 45 minutes. Cool to room temperature.

3. Transfer the roasted bones to a 7-quart crock or stock pot or inside the basket of a basket insert pasta pot. Use a metal spatula to scrape up any of the brown bits from the baking sheet and add them to the pot, too. Nest in the carrots, celery, onion, garlic, parsley and bay leaves. Toss in the peppercorns. Pour in the vinegar and 8 cups water (the water should just cover the bones and vegetables).

4. Place the stock pot or pasta pot with a basket insert, on low, bring it just below simmer and cook for 8 hours. OR Set your slow cooker to low and cook anywhere from 12 to 24 hours, the broth will be deeper and stronger in flavor the longer it cooks.

5. Once you've decided the broth is ready, remove the bones and vegetables, insert and transfer the bones and pieces of meat to a baking sheet with tongs. Strain the remaining broth through a fine sieve. Let cool to room temperature. Let the bones cool and pick off and reserve any good-looking pieces of meat to add to soups and stews.

6. Store the bone broth in airtight containers for up to 5 days in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer.
