Beef Bone Broth

Filled with flavor, this beef bone broth will satisfy your savory cravings while helping heal your gut. The key to the flavor-filled broth extracted from this recipe is that the bones are roasted first. A smoky, rich flavor will soothe the gut almost immediately.
homemade beef broth
  • Makes 8 servings
  • Prep Time 10 minutes
  • Cook Time 4 hours 15 minutes


  • 1 lb. beef bones
  • 2 tbs. olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 bay leaves
  • garlic cloves, unpeeled and chopped
  • 2 carrots, unpeeled and cut into thirds (if you have the tops, use those, too)
  • celery stalk, cut into thirds
  • 1/2 leek, cut into thirds
  • 1/2 red onion, unpeeled and chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, unpeeled and chopped
  • 1/2 bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 15 cups water
  • 2 tbs. apple cider vinegar


Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Put the bones on the prepared baking sheet. Brush with the oil, and season with a little salt and pepper.
Transfer the baking sheet to the oven, and bake until the bones have a gently roasted, golden color, for about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven.
Transfer the bones to a large soup pot.
Add the bay leaves, garlic, carrots, celery, leek, red onion, yellow onion, parsley, cilantro, water, and vinegar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 4 hours.
Strain the broth into another pot or a storage container, and discard the solids. Season with salt.
Did you know? Once the broth has cooled and been placed in the refrigerator, it should form a gelatinous layer on top. Don’t throw it out! Instead, warm the broth in a small pan on the stove. The gelatin will melt, and you will be sure to reap all its gut-healing benefits.
