I'm not sure if I shared by past beef broth failures. I wasn't aware that beef broth was not made the same way that chicken broth was. Oops.
Our apartment smelled like decomposing animals for about a week after that.
This time, however, I was armed with the frozen scraps of my dad's rib roast, a thick marrow bone, and Kelly the Kitchen Kop. Well, not in person, but still, she helped... by writing a post....
Anyway. I started by defrosting my dad's frozen bones.
from a cow... You know what I mean.
I roasted the marrow bone at 400 until it started to smell really good. After discarding the grease and choppping off the extra fatty parts, I added it to the crock pot with a sliced up carrot, some celery, an onion, and some potato bits (from a future post). Then, it was seasoned with roasted garlic, sea salt, oregano, and too much parsley.
I somehow always forget that the parsley jar doesn't have a shaker top. I shake it as if it's going to come out slowly and lose about 1/4 of the jar before I realize that is it POURING out. Good thing I like parsley.
The ingredients were then covered in water and cooked overnight. In the morning I strained it and froze it into 2 cup baggies. The house smells good, like beef stew!!! Whoo hoo!!!>
