Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3-4kg lean beef and bones
4 large carrots, chopped
4 stalks celery
2 large tomatoes, chopped
2 large onions, chopped
1 garlic head, peeled and chopped
4 bay leaves
1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
a few stalks parsley
2 litres water

Method

  1. For a richer flavour, first roast the beef and bones in a hot oven (200ºC) for about 45 minutes.
  2. Place the beef in a stock pot with the carrots, celery, tomatoes, onions, garlic, bay leaves, black peppercorns and parsley. Cover with water.
  3. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 3 hours.
  4. Strain the stock and chill for a few hours. Skim off any fat that rises to the surface. Your stock is now ready for use or for the freezer.
