INGREDIENTS

4 tbsp spinneysFOOD Mediterranean Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 onion, unpeeled and halved
1 head of garlic, halved
1 medium carrot, peeled
1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, chopped
1 tbsp tomato paste or apple cider vinegar
30g spinneysFOOD Fresh Parsley
1 tbsp spinneysFOOD Whole Black Peppercorns
2 spinneysFOOD Bay Leaves
1 tbsp spinneysFOOD Salt, plus more as needed
2kg roasted mixed beef bones (such as marrow, short rib and knuckle)

METHOD

  • 1

    In a large saucepan or the pot of a pressure cooker, add the oil and sauté the onion, garlic, carrot and ginger until softened – approx. 5 minutes.

  • 2

    Add the tomato paste, parsley, peppercorns, bay leaves and salt and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the bones. For a stove top: fill the saucepan with enough water to just cover the bones. Simmer for at least 16-24 hours or until the bones are falling apart. For a pressure cooker: fill the pot with water until the max line is reached. Cook on high pressure for 4 hours and allow the pressure to naturally release.

  • 3

    Season the stock to taste with salt and set aside to cool until warmish.

  • 4

    When cool enough to handle, strain and divide between airtight containers. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or until the stock is jellified and fat has formed a solid lid.

  • 5

    Spoon off the fat and reserve it for another use (like roasting vegetables, toasting bread, or frying potatoes).
