Beef Bone Broth Recipe With Turmeric & Coconut

beef bone broth recipe

I’m sure by now, you’re no stranger to bone broth and how nutrient-rich it is as a food.  A year ago I wrote an article on some of bone broth’s key nutrients and healing benefits.  Turns out it contains a bunch of amino acids like proline, glycine and gutamine, which are all great for gut health as well as nourishing skin, hair and connective tissue [1a].  There are also levels of important minerals in bone broth, such as magnesium, calcium and zinc [1].

And though it’s true that you can get these nutrients from other foods, one of the advantages of bone broth is it’s really easy for the body to absorb as it involves little breakdown or digestion by the gut.  As well as being a wonderful way of using up the carcasses of your Sunday roasts!

This beef bone broth recipe also takes the best of a good bone broth and combines it with the super-antioxidant benefits of ginger, and also curcumin, the active compound in turmeric.  This is why the addition of black pepper is important to the recipe, because black pepper enhances the bio-availability and absorption of curcumin by the body [2].

Beef Bone Broth Recipe

Note: this beef bone broth recipe makes enough for about 3 servings.

Ingredients

  • 500ml / 2 cups organic beef bone broth
  • 290ml / 1 cup coconut cream
  • 2 tablespoons grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon chopped coriander
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric, plus some for sprinkling
  • juice of ½ lime OR 2 tablespoons organic apple cider vinegar
  • good grating of back pepper

Method

To start with, make your beef bone broth overnight using my Healing Bone Broth Recipe, (just substituting the poultry bones for organic beef bones).
This will give you the quantity of bone broth you need as a base.

1  Pop a saucepan over a medium heat and add the previously-prepared bone broth, coconut cream, ginger and turmeric.

2  Heat through for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally and allowing the spices to infuse.  Season with the black pepper and sea salt to taste.

3  Then add the lime or apple cider vinegar if you like a sour edge to your broth.

4  Pour into mugs or bowls, sprinkle with the coriander and a little more turmeric and enjoy.
