Using beef bones – or any bones for that matter – to make soup stock is the best way to get FLAVOR into your soup. Ask your butcher for some soup bones if you don’t see them out in the meat section. They always have a few in the back that they will wrap up for you. Take them home and roast them by themselves. Add them to water and then boil the roasted bones for 30 minutes with herbs, salt and pepper. You can add just about anything to that stock and it will become a delicious soup.
