Crock Pot Beef Bone Broth.

  • Prep Time: 15m
  • Cook Time: 36h
  • Total Time: 36h 15m


  • 2 pounds Pasture Grazed Beef Bones
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 medium onion quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher/sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper or whole peppercorns
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 sprigs fresh parsley
  • 10 cups filtered cold water


  1. Place all ingredients in 6 quart crock pot. Add water. Bring to boil over high heat; reduce to low and simmer gently for 24 to 48 hours (longer is better). Skimming fat if you feel necessary. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  2. Discard solids and strain remainder in a bowl through a colander. In addition we strained through cheese cloth to remove all solids. Let stock cool to room temperature, cover and chill. A small skim of fat formed on surface. Doug removed this fat and used with his bullet proof coffee.
  3. Will keep in fridge for a number of weeks and freezer for months.
