We are still working our way through the first cow we had killed way back in December 2012. It takes a long time to eat a whole cow even when it is not a very big one. We have also shared the meat out with family and friends
Most of the bones we had cut up as dog bones but some I kept for stock.
Over the weekend I used up the last of the bones to make beef stock.
I like to make my stock after roasting the bones in the oven first until they are very dark. Only then to I put them in a stockpot with carrots, onions, celery and herbs.
I usually have my stock on the stove top for the entire day so that I can get a nice concentrated batch.
This time I ended up with 5 litres which I packed in to takeaway containers and froze. It joins the chicken stock in the freezer and will last us quite a while as we do not use beef stock that often.
How do you use beef stock?
