    WTH is wrong with my bone broth??

    I started it yesterday and its still week. I added more meat/bones this morning. Just HOW LONG does it have to cook?? Feel like an idiot because my bone broth sucks.

    I use a pressure cooker, cuts the time drastically.

    It may not look really dark if you didn't roast the bones first. It's probably fine. If it gels after you cool it in the fridge it's all good. Which cut(s) did you use?

    I roasted the 1st set of bones I put in. It even tastes weak. I used beef ribs. Its hard to find "soup bones" and I even went to the butcher.

    I don't know; never cooked bone both but I feel your pain! Last weekend I put a brisket in the crockpot. I was supposed to be done in 8 to 10 hours (on low). It ended up taking 18 hours. It did turn out really yummy when it was finally done. Crock pots are fickle.

    I slow cook mine for 2-3 days. Did you put in a couple tablespoons of vinegar? It helps.

    Even if you roast the bones, the broth might be quite clear. I prefer a clear broth.

    What do you expect it to taste like? It won't taste like much. I make broths for the gelatin and calcium, not for flavor. I prefer very simple, light flavors, though. It will not seem thick when warm. It will thicken when cool, and the fat will rise to the top. Otherwise it will feel mostly like water.

    If you want you can test it. Take a cup and put it in the refrigerator to cool. There will be a lovely thin rim of fat on the top and the rest will be gelatinous.

    If this doesn't happen then just let it cook for a while longer. With experience you will know what to do to make it how you like it. It is an art.

    Enjoy! It is very healthful. I add gelatin to everything!

    Usually 2 or 3 days, and you need to have a fair amount of bones to water, or it will look like dishwater.
