Flavored Bone Broth Recipes

flavored bone broth and recipes

What flavored bone broth are you in the mood for? Below you will find broth recipes that are great for sipping or to use in dishes to enhance the flavor.

Roasting Bones and Simmering

Before I dive into recipes, let’s discuss the topic of roasting your bones or not. There is no right or wrong answer here. One way is not proven to be more nutritious than the other. It comes down to personal preference on flavor and color.

Roasted Bones give the broth a darker color, a caramelized flavor, and an overall heartier broth. It is unclear as to what’s the “best” way to roast bones. What I recommend is browning them in a little olive oil on the stove over medium-high heat. About a minute on each side, and then poor bones and drippings into your slow cooker

Raw Bones give the broth a lighter cleaner color and texture. I prefer raw bones over roasted because it is less work, and I personally don’t taste a big change in flavor. My advice would be try it both ways!

Another piece to figure out is what temperature represents “simmer” based on the crockpot or slow-cooker we use to make your broth in. I recommend referencing the manual for suggestions.

Flavored Bone Broth Recipes

For flavored bone broths, I recommend making batches in a crock pot! Unless, you have adequate storage, like an energy efficient freezer chest, to support batch sizes in an 18 qt. Nesco. Making flavored bone broths will enhance the yumminess of dishes you plan to use the broth in, as well as give you variety for sipping. TRUST ME. When you’re sipping broth daily, variety is necessary after a few months in order to keep you going!

Instructions for these recipes are based on making bone broth in a crock pot (Crock pot size is 6 Qt). Please increase/decrease batch size based on the size of crock pot you choose to use.

I use a Nesco since I have adequate storage space. Start at 250 degree mark. Once you notice the water boiling, turn the temperature down to 225 or 200 degrees and let simmer between 24 and 48 hours. It is recommended for beef bones that you simmer for 48 hours. The morning day two, check to see if the marrow is falling out of the beef bones. If it still seems like the marrow is attached (not fully broken down) I recommend turning the temp up a bit.

Hello! I’m Nicole, a high-achieving, entrepreneurial wife/mom in my early thirties. I hold many other labels like gardner, connector, meditator and family chef, as I’m sure you do. In another life, I’d run a successful food truck and be a sommelier. I started this blog because I’ve been on a healing journey that has largely relied on bone broth and pre-made stocks as my daily nutrition to get me back to optimal health. This is my first blog and I hope it provides candid opinions, factual information, tips, tricks and more that make your life easier and healthier.
