Mineral Rich Beef Bone Broth

I simmered my broth for 14 hours, which yielded about 10 cups of broth; the longer the simmer, the more concentrated the broth will be. This broth can be enjoyed as is, or used in soups and sauces. It can be diluted if desired for soups.

  • 4 pounds beef marrow and knuckle bones grass-fed preferable
  • 1 1/2 pounds beef short ribs on the bone grass-fed preferable
  • 1 1/2 pounds beef neck bones grass-fed preferable
  • 1/2 cup raw apple cider vinegar
  • 3 onions rough chopped
  • 3 carrots rough chopped
  • 3 celery stalks rough chopped
  • 4 dried shitake mushrooms
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 bunch parsley washed well


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place marrow bones and knuckle bones in a large stockpot with vinegar and add water to cover the bones. Let sit for an hour.
  3. Place short ribs and neck bones in a roasting pan and roast for 45 minutes to an hour until nicely browned. Add to pot, along with onions, carrots, celery, shitake mushrooms, peppercorns and bay leaves. Add some water to roasting pan, scrape up any browned bits and add to the pot. Add more water if necessary to cover all the bones. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for at least 12 hours, skimming surface to remove any scum floating on top.
  4. Add parsley and simmer another 10-15 minutes. Let cool, then strain broth. Reserve the short rib meat and marrow for later use.
  5. Refrigerate broth. Remove any solidified fat on top.
