Ingredients

  • Beef Soup Bones or chicken carcasses, or Ham Hocks
  • 3 celery stalks leaves attached, roughly chopped into a third
  • 3 carrots roughly chopped
  • 2 onions halved
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic
  • 15 whole peppercorns
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 sprigs each of fresh herbs - thyme, parsley, oregano
  • 2 tablespoons of oil

Instructions

  1. Place soup pot on the stove. Heat the oil on high and when its hot, add the onions and carrots and stir for about 10 minutes until caramelizes.
  2. Add the celery and garlic and continue to caramelize the vegetables for another 5 minutes on medium heat.
  3. Add your bones into the pot and fill the pot with water.
  4. Add peppercorns, and the herb sprigs to the pot and bring to a boil.
  5. When it reaches the boil, simmer on low with a semi-covered lid for about 4 hours. (the longer the better)
  6. During the cooking process, skim off any impurities off the top while simmering.
  7. Strain the soup into a colander over a large bowl to remove the big bones and vegetables.
  8. Using a cheesecloth (muslin), strain the soup again to remove the small impurities to make a clear broth.
  9. Your stock is now ready to use for your soup. Any excess stock, easily freezes for another meal.

Recipe Notes

Note: This stock isn't seasoned. Season with salt and pepper during the soup making process. I use 2-3 pounds of beef bones, or 2 chicken carcasses, or 2 pounds of ham hocks.
