Beef stock is a good base for beef casseroles and hearty stews.

It is also a good base for Minestrone soup and many Asian dishes. Place the beef bones in a hot oven for 15 minutes, then cook as per the recipe.

Cooking the bones in the oven enhances the meaty flavour and gives you a well rounded, tasty stock!

How to Make Beef Stock


  1. In a pot, add in water and start to heat. Add all the ingredients in.

  2. Then, turn the heat down to let the stock simmer.

  3. Simmer for approximately four hours (or in the slow cooker on high for eight hours).

  4. Make sure to check several times during cooking and skim the 'scum' off the top and discard.

  5. Grab a large container with a lid.

  6. Put a strainer on top and pour the stock through it. Strain well.

  7. Discard all the ingredients remaining in the strainer.

  8. Cool the mixture down.

  9. Allow the stock to cool to room temperature before placing in the fridge.
