Slow and Easy Beef Stock

Recipe by  

"This simple way of making a beef reduction takes two days, but requires very little work. We buy a hind quarter of beef every 2 months. I use this recipe to make use of the leftover bones from the leg section. I don't add any vegetables or spices with this because I want to be able to control the flavor of sauce I want later. This simply creates a good starting point for a sauce."

Directions

  1. Combine the bones and water in a large stockpot. Bring the mixture to a boil. Maintain a low boil for 24 hours, adding water to keep the bones submerged. Remove and discard the bones. Allow mixture to simmer another 21 to 22 hours. Strain the liquid through a fine-mesh colander and return to the stockpot. Bring to a boil and cook until liquid has reduced to about 2 quarts.
  2. Transfer the stock to heat-safe containers; freeze. Once frozen, there should be three easily-discernable layers. Remove and discard the top-most of those three layers. Thaw remaining portion to use.

This is a purist's dream beef stock. Beautiful!

I love this, looks like its a pain to make - but so much more healthy. Look at the sodium content on canned or boxed stocks, this has much more flavour and you get a whole lot which is easy to freeze for later use. Loved it!

Thank you for the clearinstructions. I have always wanted to be able to make this, and I agree that the pure beef flavor makes the most useful and versatile stock. Since today's slow cookers are set at a higher temperature than the ones originally made, it is nw perfectly possible to make this stock in one of them from start to finish. I buy beef bones from an Asian market (in case you can't find them in hyour supermarket).

This is perfect for a healthy, no-frills stock. When done cooking, let cool slightly then pour into ice cube trays and freeze. Much easier for portions.
