The Original Gangster Bone Broth

This is the Tupac of bone broth recipes, certified OG!

In the last few years bone broth has really grabbed the attention of the community.  In fact, you can’t go to a farmers market these days without being bombarded by Birkenstock-wearing hippies trying to sell you the good stuff!

Whilst the hipsterfication of my precious broth has led to all kinds of complicated recipes, my favorite version is the original one.  It is simple, delicious and packed with the 3 big hitters of collagen, proline and glycine, which work so well together to support the cells of our intestinal walls.

Ingredients

Vegetables

2 carrots

1 onion

2 celery sticks

5 cloves of garlic

Protein & Fats

2 lbs / 1 kg grass-fed beef bones with some nice marrow/fat attached OR chicken bones

Flavors

4 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tsp sea salt & pepper

Directions

  1. In a large pot heat some olive oil over medium heat and add in your beef bones/meat. We want to brown them here, which usually takes about 5 minutes.
  2. Rinse your vegetables. Chop them up. And then add to the pot, along with 1 teaspoon of salt & pepper.  
  3. Pour water into cover, add the apple cider vinegar and bring to the boil. *If you have Candida Overgrowth or SIBO skip the apple cider vinegar as it can potentially contribute to bacterial imbalance.
  4. Once boiling, turn it down to a simmer and let this broth of the gods cook away on a low heat for 6-8 hours.
  5. Check periodically to see if there is enough liquid in there, and if needed top up with water.
  6. When ready strain away the bones and vegetables, so you just end up with the liquid broth. Pour a cup and sip away!

Make It Special

Most people might recommend just doing the broth without adding in the bones. But we wanted to do something a little more special for you. So checkout our 5-veggie broth recipe.
