    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Brushing the bones with tomato paste then browning in the oven firstly then combined with the slow cooking crockpot method will produce the most flavorful richest beef broth --- I usually prepare the ingredients early in the morning, by late evening you will have a wonderful rich beef broth, or you may cook overnight --- the stock may be frozen after cooling, if you don't have a crock pot you may certainly simmer this over very low heat on top of the stove, it will still be delicious! The more bones you use the richer your stock will be, so use lots!

    1. 1
      Place the bones on a greased baking sheet and brush liberally with tomato paste (use only tomato paste not tomato sauce).
    2. 2

    3. 3
      Bake for about 25 minutes on each side or until browned.
    4. 4
      Place in the crock pot or large stock pot along with remaining ingredients, then add in enough water to cover.
    5. 5
      Cover and cook on low for 12-24 hours OR on HIGH for 6 hours (if cooked on high setting the stock will be lighter in color and less concentrated) or if cooking on the stove top simmer on lowest heat for about 4-6 hours.
    6. 6
      Remove from crock pot or stock pot; strain and refrigerate.
    7. 7
      The stock will keep well for 4-5 days or may be frozen.
    8. 8
      Note: veal bones may be replaced for beef bones.
    9. 9
      **Note** you may certainly use more than the amount stated for beef bones, the more used then the richer the stock.

      I have used this with both beef and lamb as the meat/bones in this. I agree with several of the other reviewers, as I feel it is a bit bland, but not too bad (hence the 4 stars: 5 for ease, 3 for taste). To compensate for the blandness I have begun to make it with a few changes. I use fresh herbs instead of dried (adding thyme to the parsley called for), add a bit more carrot, add a couple of cloves of garlic or leek (depending on what I have around), and reduce it a bit before use. In general though, I think it is a good recipe and really like the oven browning (it's a great shortcut).

      Wow, I always tend to like Kittencal's recipes, so I was shocked when I didn't like this. I did as stated and found the flavor to be really bland. So I played with it a bit, even trying to reduce it for a stronger flavor. It never worked. I have to say that for the amount I got out of it, I can purchase a really great organic beef stock for about $3.00. This just wasn't worth it.

      In all my cooking, I have never made beef stock for some reason. I found this method really, really easy. I did leave it for about 24 hours (driving my husband crazy with the delicious smell)and I think every last suggestion of flavour was removed from those bones. After I strained it, I mashed the vegetables into a thick sort of paste and used that and the stock to make a beef and barley soup. I think the vegetables retained alot of flavour and I didn't want to lose that... the soup turned out really well and I will definately make stock using this method again. I might add a bit more seasoning next time. Thanks Kittencal.
