Beef Stock

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/beef_stock.html

Veal bones make a particularly rich, gelatinous beef stock. If you don't have them, substitute an equal amount of beef bones. The step of roasting the bones, which imparts fuller flavor, may be omitted if time is short.

About 3 quarts | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 5 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place bones in a large roasting pan. Roast until golden, 40 minutes. Stud each onion with 3 cloves. Place the roasted bones in a large stock pot with water. Bring to a boil, skim foam and reduce heat to low. Add carrots, celery, leek, garlic, parsley, thyme and bay leaf and simmer, uncovered, for 5 hours.
  2. Strain through a fine sieve. Skim fat, if using immediately, or refrigerate overnight and remove solidified fat.
