Homemade Beef Broth
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 5-1/2 hours + chilling
Makesabout 2-1/2 quarts
I'm making this broth now. After reading the comments, I will definitely cover the broth after roasting the bones, then adding the water, and continuing on to simmer with the other seasonings. The broth must be covered while simmering to incorporate all the flavors and keep all the liquid from boiling off. If you want to reduce the amount of liquid and/or intensify the flavor, you can simmer the broth AFTER removing the beef bones and straining the broth.
Confused! I followed the directions exactly and ended up with barely a quart of broth. Simmering uncovered results in the liquid being greatly reduced even though I added water as instructed. This was WAY too work intensive for the results. Where did I go wrong????
This was so tasty! Will keep this recipe handy!
eassy and good. i used beef marrow bones they have tons of flavor. i give the meat dripping to my dogs as a treat in their food.
Could someone please tell me when do you add the 3 quarts of cold water?
I've made beef broth from scratch before but this was definitely the easiest and tastiest recipe I've tried. I'll certainly make it again.

To save money we buy locker beef from our local butcher shop. It always comes with beef soup bones. This is a great way to use up all the soup bones. I chill the finished broth and the extra fat can be removed easily.
Followed recipe the first time - and have purchased another load of bones from my meat market to make another batch. This is the best thing to have measured and frozen in my freezer for various dishes. I have even taken an old ice cube tray to freeze small amounts of the broth just to use around a hamburger in a pan - makes it taste like a steak! Beef stew was the best ever and plan to make many more dishes using the homemade beef broth. Highly recommend everyone to have a batch in freezer!
