Simple Bone Broth with Slow Cooker

AvatarPosted by

If you haven’t heard by now, Bone Broth is amazing for you!  There are numerous health benefits such as for your gut health, joints, skin, immune system and more!   Also… it actually taste awesome adding it to other dishes that call for broth.  So, let’s get to it then!  Here’s a super easy method of making Simple Bone Broth with Slow Cooker.

Simple Bone Broth with Slow Cooker Ingredients

  • 2-3 lbs bones – I usually use pork bones (and with bone marrow!), but it’s really up to you.
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 medium carrot, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbsp of ginger, sliced
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Water (enough to cover bones in your slow cooker.  My slow cooker is 5 quart.)
  • Salt and pepper, as desired

Simple Bone Broth with Slow Cooker Instructions

The first thing I do is blanch it.  To do this, place the bones in a pot and cover the bones with cold water.  Bring to a boil, and let them cook for about 10 minutes before draining.  This helps clarify your broth.

Put bones and vegetables into the slow cooker and top with water until covered.

Cook on low for 8-24 hours.  I know that seems like a wide range.  It’s cause technically you can start eating/drinking it at 8 but the longer you cook it the more rich it becomes.  So if you’re not in hurry.  Why not go longer!  Season with salt and pepper as desired.  You can strain it if you would like just pure clear stock, but if not, then don’t worry about it.

By the way, you can totally just drink the broth as is!  After dumping some clear broth in to a container and popping in to the freezer, I like to enjoy the broth with all the veggies and some of the meat that gets left behind from the bones.

One more thing!  Check your bones for bone marrow!  That stuff is some delicious and nutritious goodness that has many health benefits!  When I was little, sucking out the bone marrow out of my mom’s bone broths was like my favorite part of dinner!

  1. I am sitting here sipping my bone broth whilst reading your blog.
    I kind of expected to see some chilies or spice in your broth. And then I saw the ginger. 🙂 I love the spice in your food.
