Beef/Chicken Bone Broth

This stuff is pure gold when it comes to a drink of choice to heal your body.  Loaded with vitamins and minerals, essential amino acids, and collagen to help heal and repair your gut, strengthen your bones, and improve mobility in your joints.   

Both chicken and beef are beneficial for you but both impart different flavours and have a slightly different nutritional profile.  If you are mainly interested in the nutritional benefits of consuming bone broth, then beef delivers a higher mineral content of magnesium, sulfur, phosphorus, and calcium.  Whereas, chicken broth is higher in omega 6, which if you suffer from high inflammation or high blood pressure, should be avoided until your health returns to an optimal level.

Read my blog post on the benefits of drinking a daily cup of bone broth.


  • 1 kilogram chicken frames or necks(for chicken broth) or beef bones (for beef broth)
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped roughly
  • 1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 3 celery sticks, chopped roughly
  • 2 carrots, chopped roughly
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 6 sprigs parsley
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • enough water to cover all ingredients


  1. Add the chicken or beef bones in a slow-cooker with the chopped vegetables, apple cider vinegar, herbs, salt & pepper.
  2. Fill the pot up with water, to cover all the ingredients. (Check the max line of your slow cooker to fill it up to that point)
  3. Cover and set to high. Allow to slow-cook for minimum 4 hours. If setting to low for overnight cooking, allow to slow-cook for 8 hours.
  4. Strain the stock through a colander into another large pot, leaving behind the vegetable and chicken stock.
  5. Pour into jars and refrigerate until ready to use (Use within 5 days).
  6. Simply pour into a mug, heat in the microwave and enjoy!
  7. You can use the broth as a base for your preferred soup recipes. So much better and tastes better than the store-bought varieties.
