Instructions to Make Your Own beef Broth From Scraps:
Rinse your beef and vegetable scraps and/or cuttings. Place into your pot. Add your herbs and seasonings.
Pour cold water into the pot, leaving a few inches of space at the top. Bring to a boil over medium high heat.
Reduce to medium and simmer for at least an hour. You can let the beef broth recipe simmer for up to 3 hours.
Note: As the beef broth simmers, impurities will float to the top in the form of a foam. Using a spoon, remove the foam and discard.
Once completed, remove from the heat. Using tongs or a slotted spoon, remove the vegetables and beef.
Pour the cooled broth through a wire mesh strainer. Use right away or store for up to a week in the fridge in an air-tight container or jar.
