Julia Child’s Simple Beef Stock Recipe

Julia Child’s Simple Beef Stock Recipe


3 – 4 beef bones from grassfed cows (Factory-farmed cattle have many illnesses and are therefore not healthy for you to eat.)

3 carrots, broken into several pieces

2 medium onions, peeled and quartered

3 stalks of celery, broken into several pieces

2 leeks, cleaned and cut into chunks

1 sprig thyme

2 fresh bay leaves

2 garlic cloves, unpeeled

2 whole cloves

6 – 8 peppercorns


Place the beef bones in a large heavy pot and cover with cold water by about two inches.  Bring to a simmer over medium heat and skim the sum which rises to the top–this should take about five minutes.  Add the remaining ingredients and more cold water so that everything is covered by at least an inch or two.  Bring the stock to a simmer again, skimming as necessary.  When the stock is simmering (Do NOT allow it to boil), partially cover and maintain at a very slow simmer for four to five hours.  If the water level gets too low, add boiling water to the pot. Skim as necessary.  When the vegetables and the bones have given their all to the broth, strain the broth and discard the solids.  Set the stock, uncovered in the refrigerator until the fat has risen to the top and solidified.  Remove and discard the fat.  Taste the degreased stock (remembering it contains no salt) and if it is not strong enough, reduce it over medium heat.  When the stock is cold, store in the refrigerator for up to three days or in the freezer.

While western medicine focuses on treating illnesses once they occur (or performing potentially harmful “screening tests” and vaccines to “prevent” disease), traditional Chinese medicine focuses on continuously strengthening your overall health to help defend against future illness. Jade Windscreen (Yu Ping Feng San) is one formula that has been safely used for centuries by the Chinese to provide a protective “Jade Screen” to strengthen the immune system and prevent seasonal illness.
