Beef Bone Broth Recipe

Bone broth is easier than you might think! This recipe uses beef bones, but you can also use chicken bones to make a delicious broth. Also, you will be freezing this broth, so there's no need for canning equipment!

Ashley's Best Beef Bone Broth Recipe


5-6 Miller Brothers beef bones

2 medium carrots, peeled and roughly chopped

2 celery sticks, roughly chopped

1 medium onion, roughly chopped

4-5 garlic cloves, diced

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

Approx 6-7 cups of water (enough to cover)

Optional: Salt or Italian seasoning to taste


  1. Put the soup bones into a medium sized slow cooker.

  2. Add all of the veggies.

  3. Then pour the apple cider vinegar over everything.

  4. Next, add as many cups of water as it takes to cover the bones and veggies completely.

  5. Add some seasonings as desired: salt or Italian seasoning to taste.

  6. Cook on low in the slow cooker for at least 24 hours or longer.

  7. Every once in a while while cooking, stir the contents of the slow cooker.

  8. After 24 hours have passed, scoop the broth out of the slow cooker and strain it into jars.

  9. Fill each jar about ¾ of the way full. Be careful not to overfill the jars because they will crack in the freezer.

  10. Label each jar, then loosely put lids on.

  11. Let the jars cool to room temperature.

  12. Once the jars have cooled, transfer them to the freezer.

  13. Come back and check on the jars in a day or so to make sure the jars have not cracked. Then tighten the lids all the way.

Tip: This recipe works great in an instant pot as well, and honestly, the instant pot has become my favorite way to make broth. Here's how: add all the ingredients to the instant pot, cover with water, and pressure cook for 2 hours and 30 minutes. Slow release. Add to jars and freeze.

To use: thaw the bone broth on the counter, in hot water, or in a microwave. Use in your favorite soup, replace water with bone broth to make rice, or add it to your instant pot for a nice beefy flavor!

Note: This same recipe works with chicken bones too! Save the bones (and as much cartilage and skin as you can) from a whole fryer chicken and use them in place of the beef bones for delicious chicken bone broth!
