How to make meat broth

Beef broth is a stable ingredient for making many types of fresh stuffed pasta, risotto and a multitude of Italian recipes. This basic preparation is one of the most important for Italian cooks.

Ingredients for 4 people

4 quarts water
10 oz beef
¼ hen or capon
2 stalks celery
1 onion
3 carrots
5 stalks parsley
whole peppercorns


Wash the carrot, chop into large pieces and place in a pot.

Remove the celery leaves, roughly chop the celery and add it too.

Peel the onion and cut into half or quarters. Add it to the pot.

Also add chopped hen or beef.

Add a grinding of pepper and season with salt.

Cover with the water and bring to a boil.

Simmer over medium heat for 3 to 4 hours.

Once the water has begun to boil, skim off any scum that rises to the top.

Once the broth is done cooking, remove the ingredients and filter the broth through a chinois.

Let the broth cool, then use a spoon to remove the layer of fat that will have formed on the surface.
