It's just another Manic Monday and time for another "Manic Monday Menu"!
This week’s "Manic Monday Menu" features an easier, tastier and healthier alternative to those canned broths and stocks in the store. Make your own from scratch in no time at all and I guarantee if you do this once, you’ll never buy another can of broth or stock again.
So here is my exclusive recipe for:
MANIC’S HOMEMADE STOCK
Ingredients you will need:
-1 tablespoon of butter
-2 cups coarsely chopped onions
-1 cup coarsely chopped celery
-1 cup coarsely chopped carrot
-4 garlic cloves, cut in half
-leftover carcass/bones from either a turkey or chicken that you had previously
(for a vegetarian option, just leave out the carcass/bones and substitute with more vegetables of your choice, for example…cabbage, peppers, corn cobs, etc)
-1 teaspoon of salt
-1 teaspoon of pepper
In a Large Dutch oven, heat the butter over medium-high heat. Add onions, celery, carrot, and garlic to the Dutch oven and cook for a couple minutes. Then Add the Carcass/Bones and fill with water to cover everything. Simmer this on medium-high heat for at least 5 hours or till all the bones are clean and the meat has fallen off. The longer you cook this, the more flavorful it will become. Then pour through a strainer and remove all bones adn vegetables left behind. If making a soup, use all the meat that fell off of the bones in your soup. Use this stock as a base for soups, sauces or anything you desire. You may freeze this if you don’t plan on using it right away. Just pour it in smaller containers, let it cool and place in the freezer.
Hope you enjoyed this recipe for MANIC’S HOMEMADE STOCK!
