About this Bone Broth for Dogs Recipe
By: Emma, FurFresh
I really like the idea of being able to make food for everyone to enjoy. You, partner, kids AND your dog! This beef bone broth for dogs is just as ideal to use for us too in soups, casseroles or simply drunk warm on its own. Roasting the bones first brings out more of that beefy flavour. The longer you cook this beef bone broth the better and more gelatinous is gets. It’s worth the wait, trust me!
- 1.5kg grass-fed beef bones (leg and other marrow rich bones are best)
- 2 tbps organic apple cider vinegar
Lay the bones on a tray lined with baking paper and bake in the oven at 180 degrees celcius for 30 minutes (doing this will bring out the beefy flavour and make your bone broth extra yummy).
Place the bones into a 18-20 litre stock pot with the apple cider vinegar and fill the pot with water leaving about 3 inches at the top. Let sit for 20-30 minutes.
Turn on heat to high and bring to a rapid boil. Once at this stage, immediately turn the heat down as low as it can go (what you want to see is a few bubbles blobbing up every few seconds). Place the lid on and simmer for 24-48 hours, depending on how thick you’d like your broth.
Note: During the first few hours, every 30 minutes you’ll need to skim off any scum that floats to the top. This will make for a cleaner and fresher tasting broth at the end.
After 24-48 hours, you’ll find virtually nothing left of the bones. Regardless, strain over a fine sieve into clean, sterile jars and store in the fridge for 5-7 days.
