Snow in the forecast. -13C, wet and cold. Life in Alberta.Nothing is better for that than a steaming hot bowl of beef soup.
If you are Celiac the selection narrows fast. Most of the bouillon cubes have some sort of gluten in them, be soy, wheat or something else. So make your own. It's easy. Very easy.
During winter I always try to have some available, it freezes perfect and is very versatile. Pho anyone?
Buy some good, BIG chunk of beef, plenty of bones (Marrow bones if you like it), blanche the meat and bones, reset with cold water, add all the spices and root vegetables and let simmer for as long as you want, but at least three hours to extract all the flavours into the pot.
I also use it for gravy and sauces. Your family will thank you.
SEE THOSE MARROW BONES?
NO ONIONS, BUT YOU SHOULD USE SOME FOR EVEN MORE FLAVOR
