Regular price $11.97

Introducing our selection of high-quality beef marrow bones and beef neck bones, perfect for creating rich and flavorful broths that will elevate your culinary creations.

1. Beef Marrow Bones: These beef marrow bones are sourced from cuts of beef that are known for their rich and gelatinous center. When simmered, these bones release a luscious and nutrient-packed marrow, which adds depth of flavor and a velvety texture to your broths. To make a nourishing bone broth, simply place the bones in a large pot, add water, and simmer for several hours. Strain the broth and use it as a base for soups, stews, sauces, or even as a standalone warm and comforting drink.

2. Beef Neck Bones: Our beef neck bones are packed with flavorful meat and connective tissue, making them ideal for creating hearty and robust broths. Slow simmering these bones allows the flavors to meld, resulting in a broth that is both savory and deeply satisfying. To make a delicious beef neck bone broth, place the bones in a pot, cover with water, and add aromatic vegetables and herbs such as onions, carrots, celery, and bay leaves. Simmer gently for several hours, then strain the broth to use as a foundation for nourishing soups or to add depth of flavor to sauces and gravies.

Benefits of Bone Broth: Bone broth has gained popularity due to its numerous health benefits. It is rich in collagen, gelatin, amino acids, and minerals that support joint health, aid digestion, promote glowing skin, and boost the immune system. Incorporating bone broth into your diet can contribute to overall wellness and provide a natural source of nourishment.

Recipes with Broth: Bone broth serves as a versatile ingredient in various recipes. Use it as a base for hearty soups like beef and vegetable, French onion, or classic chicken noodle soup. Enhance the flavors of braised dishes, such as beef stew or pot roast, by incorporating bone broth into the cooking liquid. It also adds depth and richness to sauces, gravies, and risottos.

Cooking Tips:

  • When making broth, skim off any impurities or foam that rise to the surface during simmering. This step helps achieve a clearer and cleaner-tasting broth. 
  • For the richest and most flavorful broth, consider roasting the bones in the oven before simmering. This step helps enhance the depth of flavor and adds a delightful complexity to your broth.

 Experience the richness and benefits of our beef marrow bones and beef neck bones, and unlock the potential of flavorful, nutrient-packed bone broths in your culinary repertoire.

Beef neck bones have various uses beyond making broth. Here are a few additional ways to utilize these flavorful bones:

  1. Slow-cooked Meats: Beef neck bones are perfect for slow-cooking methods like braising or stewing. The connective tissue and marbled meat break down over time, resulting in tender and succulent meat. Add them to your favorite stew recipes, pot roasts, or even barbecue dishes for an extra depth of flavor.
  2. Flavorful Sauces: Simmering beef neck bones in sauces can infuse them with rich, meaty flavors. For example, you can incorporate these bones into a tomato-based pasta sauce, a hearty ragù, or a flavorful chili. The meat and marrow will add a delightful richness to the sauce.
  3. Enhancing Stocks: While broth is typically strained and used as a standalone liquid, stocks are typically used as a flavor base in various recipes. By using beef neck bones to make a stock, you can add a depth of flavor to your homemade stocks, which can be utilized in dishes such as risottos, pilafs, and flavorful gravies.

Stock vs. Broth:

While stocks and broths are similar in that they are both flavorful liquids used in cooking, there are slight differences between the two:

  1. Ingredients: Stocks are typically made with bones (such as beef neck bones), while broths are made with meat. Stocks are often made by simmering bones, which contain collagen and marrow, resulting in a rich and gelatinous liquid. Broths, on the other hand, are made by simmering meat and may include additional seasonings and vegetables.
  2. Cooking Time: Stocks are traditionally cooked for a longer period of time than broths. The extended cooking time allows the collagen in the bones to break down, resulting in a more gelatinous and flavorful liquid. Broths, on the other hand, can be made relatively quickly, as they primarily focus on extracting flavors from the meat and seasonings.
  3. Intended Use: Stocks are often used as a base for sauces, gravies, soups, and stews. They provide a deep, rich flavor and contribute to the body and texture of the final dish. Broths, on the other hand, are often consumed as a standalone soup or used as a base for lighter soups and sauces. They tend to have a more pronounced meaty flavor.

In the context of using beef neck bones, simmering them for an extended period of time will result in a flavorful stock that can be used as a base for various recipes. This stock will have a higher gelatin content, which can provide a rich mouthfeel and enhance the overall flavor of the dish.
