My keto-friendly bone broth recipe
I only did my broth once, and I was not a fan, because of the smell in the house. Plus, I am lazy to do my own.
I bought the beef bones from Vlees Bij Ons. I used a slow cooker. I read that the bones must be cooked for at least 12-24 hours. I don’t want to do that. I think 5 hours is more than enough.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
- Beef/chicken bones (grass-fed if you can)
- Vinegar (optional – but it helps the minerals)
- Desired spices
Place the desired amount (usually I do 500 gr) of bones in the slow-cooker.
Add water, enough to cover the bones. Add the spices, and the veggies you want.
Set the timer for 5-6 hours, in low- mode.
After 5-6 hours, transfer the broth into glasses jars, and let them cool down.
After that, the gelatine and the broth should be divided: keep the gelatine in a jar apart, which can be used as fat to cook. Keep the remaining broth in the fridge (not more than 3 days) or store it in the freezer, like in practical ice-cubes trays. In this way, you have always practical mono portions available, ready to be heated and consumed.
