I’m so fortunate to have an open market that provides bio beef and bones. We dashed to the market Saturday to gather some essentials for the quarantine we will be facing here in Germany, and I created a nice list of things that I’d need to make nutritious and safe foods for both my husband and me. I purchased a bag of bones and prepared a gallon of broth. I froze it in separate containers so I could use it in my soups and sauces.
Pretty simple and especially if you use your crockpot. I put all the ingredients in the pot at 3 pm and left it on low until the next day at 3 pm, basically 24 hours. It was so delicious.
One of Germany’s cool things is the way they create combine packages of herbs and veggies just for making soup. I picked up one of those, but you can add your own favorite veggies and herbs. I used a large crockpot, so you will have to adjust the water to the size of the crockpot you have. I do fill mine with water 2 inches from the top! Just a quick note, you can also leave out the beef bones and make this a veggie broth as well.
Don’t forget to add some pea powder protein or your favorite collagen to take it up a notch.
