Crock pot beef broth to can or freeze. Why pay for beef broth when you can make it yourself using leftover beef bones and kitchen peelings and save a lot.
I like this recipe because it is so easy to set up the ingredients in the crock pot and let the beef broth make its self. Then the next day you can pressure can it or put it in the freezer.
You end up with a crock pot full of homemade, delicious beef broth for next to nothing and you have it on hand for making a pot of soup or some gravy without having to buy it at the store.
Making your own broth, both beef and chicken is one of the easiest frugal ways to save money on groceries. Why add 2 or more dollars to the cost of a meal when you can make your own for so little.
This crock pot version is from Premeditated Leftovers. They tell us that if we don’t have any beef bones that have been left over ( Keep a freezer bag in the freezer and add beef bone until you have enough to make a batch of broth) that you can buy soup bones in the store.
You can buy them but I would avoid the neck bones because that is where all the injections are given and they are injected with a lot of stuff now days.
One thing that I do when making beef broth is add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. It helps to leech the minerals from the bones and our bones can put them to good use. Always make sure to roast your bones as per the recipe. If you don’t your broth will lack flavor as the roasting really brings out the beef flavor.
