One of the superstar foods in Paleo is beef bone broth. When perusing the list of grass-fed meats available from my CSA (community supported agriculture – read more about it here: Tahini Dip) I was delighted to find they sell dog bones for just $3 per bag. I ordered my first bag for Bella but when they arrived they were really not suitable for the dog (because they were too small) but I was amazed at what a massive amount of bones it was. Clearly I’m not above making broth for myself out of dog bones so my adventure in beef bone broth began. Since my first order I’ve gotten them twice more and although the bags have not been as big, the bones have been bigger and are just what I need – knuckles and marrow (I did give one of the marrow bones to Bella
only to find she did what she frequently does with something she really loves. She hides it. Unfortunately her latest hiding place is in the kitty litter box as opposed to hiding them in my bed or behind the pillows of my couch – which she used to to before Rafi moved in).
This is a great and versatile recipe. You can use the broth in any recipe calling for broth or just eat some by itself, perhaps garnished with chopped herbs.
Don’t be discouraged by this seemingly unimportant recipe – there will be 2 recipes following this that will use beef bone broth as the base.
