    Beef Bone Broth

    Primal Fuel
    I've read that using apple cider vinegar when making bone broth helps extract minerals in the process, this is a good thing. Must it be apple cider in particular? Am trying to avoid a trip to the store, and I have a nice large bottle of good white wine vinegar - will this serve the need? Just curious - thanks!

    Never heard that. I have been trying to find some grassfed/organic soup bones and not having a lot of luck. I have been making a chicken broth w/ Publix Greenwise chicken. I am guessing it would work as well? Could it be taste? I was actually going to put some apple slices in my broth this go round. Honestly, I don't like the taste but have been drinking it for the goodness in it.

    Nah.. I was always aware "they" were out to get me.. even before I became Primal..... Now I can just run faster if they find me-Dino Hunter

    Out of stock right now, but that's where I got my bones.

    As to the question... I haven't heard about that. Of course, I don't know a whole lot about bone broth vs. regular beef broth, so... yeah.

    Thanks for the link. Have you ever used oxtail?

    I used regular white vinegar because I had it on hand.

    Yes. Actually, the last broth I made, I used 2 lbs of oxtail and 1 lb of small marrow bones.

    Good to know. One more question (and thanks so much for the info) How much did that make? I have been using one medium chicken in a crock pot. Maybe I just need a bigger pot and add more water/apple cider vinegar? It just doesn't seem to yield that much.

    Keep a kettle of water nearby and, when you see the water level going down, heat the kettle and add water to the pot.

    Though a larger pot would be helpful.

    I started out with a little over a half gallon of water for 3 lbs of beef (one gallon for one 4.6 lb chicken), and I think I ended up with about as much stock (same for the chicken).

    ALSO make sure that the stock is at a bare simmer, nothing more. You should see a few bubbles pop up every once in a while and that's it (no steam).
