jar labeled as bone broth in the freezerBone broth is incredibly healthy, and can be made at home with a slow cooker or on the stove. The collagen and calcium available in bones, as well as the contents of the marrow, provide many wonderful health benefits to everyone. When made right, this broth provides a wonderful flavor to all stews.


Prep Time: less than an hour

Cook Time: 8+

Yield: 1 gallon



  • 2 lb bones
  • 1 gal water
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • garlic


  1. Wash your bones.
  2. Put in the slow cooker with gallon of water and cup of vinegar. The vinegar helps the calcium leech into the broth.
  3. Add salt to taste, and pepper as well.
  4. Leave for 8 to 12 hours. Some folks leave it cooking for three days, if they do not have a crockpot or slow cooker.
  5. After it's finished, let it cool. Separate into pint-sized containers and freeze.
  6. Now you will always have nutritious broth to use as a base in any soup or stew!

I would like to make this, but have heard it smells terrible when cooking. Does it?

My friend won the meat from an entire cow at a school raffle. She gave me about 6 pounds of beef bones to make broth and had another 4 pounds for herself. I made this recipe with her and then made it again at home.


This nutritious broth can be used to make all sorts of soups: French onion, beef barley or even pho.

Bone broth is an excellent soup base with rich flavors and nutrients from meat bones. The Instant Pot makes this recipe a snap but it can also be made in a slow cooker or stockpot.
