Making beef stock
 
Tomorrow I plan to begin making some beef stock. Ive got 2 really nice beef bones and some rib bones in my freezer. I think I know how I'm gonna do this I'm gonna roast the meaty bones for about an hour. Then put them in my slow cooker for about 48 hours along with some onions carrots and celery. I'm just wondering if there is anything else I should add to the pot?

LOL! Don't forget the water:lol: Seriously, I like to add a bay leaf and some parsley or thyme to the stock. Garlic is good, too.

That's right how can I forget the bay leaf! I think I'm also gonna use some vinegar too

Good idea!

It's been cooking in my slow cooker about 24 hours. It still doesn't seem to have that nice beefy flavor. I've got 2 nice sized soup bones in there along with some rib bones. I've also added 1/2 a large onion and 3 carrots, 3 stalks of celery, 2 bay leaves, some pepper corns and about a clove of garlic. Im wondering if I need to add anything else. I'm tempted to add the chicken bones I have in the freezer but I'm afraid that will mess it up! Maybe I'll go buy another soup bone in the morning.

I sometimes "beef" mine up with some Better Than Boullion. Cheating? Perhaps. But after all that work...

A bit of worsterchester, maybe some red wine?

It might just need to be reduced a bit.

Yes. Maybe take the lid off the CP for awhile.

Yes, just needs to be reduced.
