Beef Stock with Lots of Gelatin

Did I ever post about the marrow I made?  No, I didn't think so.  Well, a while back I made some delish roasted marrow bones with crusty bread and lemony salad.  I saved the bones to make beef stock.  Of course, in the meantime, I got a little distracted.  While I was cleaning out the freezer, I stumbled upon the bones and decided to make the stock.  

First, I put the bones into a huuuuuge pot.
I added in frozen veggie scraps.
I filled the pot up with water and cooked it for ages.  By ages, I mean a few days, on and off.  Then, I took the jar of gelatin-ey broth stuff from rendering tallow out of the fridge.  
It was so jiggly!  I poured/dumped it into the pot and let it melt in.  It would be a shame to let all that good gelatin go to waste. 
Once it was melted in, I strained the stock and froze it.  I can't wait to start using it!!

  1. I'd say stock (of any sort) is about my favorite thing to make in the kitchen. Makes me feel so resourceful :)

  2. Yesterday, I came down with some sort of nasty sore throat bug. I immediately pulled some chicken broth from the freezer, thawed it enough to get it out of the mason jar, then heated up and have been chugging it ever since. I am almost back to normal. No way could I have done it without it. That stuff is like magic!

  3. I was wondering how you were going to get lots of gelatin in your stock from beef bones with nothing on them! I've never tried rendering tallow, but I'd like to. I'm hosting a weekly blog carnival specifically for soups, stocks and chowders, every Sunday! I would love it if you would come over and post this recipe. Here's a link with more information:

    I hope to see you there!
