Beef Bone Broth – Facts, Benefits, and Recipes

We’re guessing you’ve heard the news: bone broth is making an epic comeback. The processed and fast-food industries thought they’d killed it off (oh, how wrong they were), but now it’s back with a bang.

Since the dawn of time (or, at least since ancient China), humans have been plopping bones, veg, herbs, spices, and more into simmering pots of water to create rich, nutritious meals. And now, Boosh is bringing bone broth back.

In this article specifically we talk about beef bone broths and why they’re just so damn delicious.

Beef Bone Broth Facts

Let’s start at the beginning with what we know best: bone broths from Boosh.

Fact 1: Our bone broths are made with love for Earth

We love the planet as much as we love good food, so that’s why all our cattle are organic and grass-fed, from carefully-selected farms in Ireland, mostly. Plus, all our packaging is completely plastic-free because we care about the environment that our children will inherit from us.

Fact 2: The slow-cooking process means more nutrients in your belly

At Boosh, we do things nice and slow. That’s why all our bone broths are left to bubble and brew for 16 hours. In that time, we’ll start by adding our organic animal products and then we might include veg, herbs, spices, and more (depending on which of our lovely recipes we’re making that time). Better still, all that cooking means more nutrients (like collagen, full of protein) get into the water and more flavour in your meal. The wait is agonising!

Fact 3: Boosh bone broths are so versatile you’ll think they’re magic

When you imagine a liquid, the word ‘flexible’ probably doesn’t come to mind. Wet? Sure. Tasty? Definitely, if from Boosh. But flexible? Actually, that too – all bone broths from Boosh can be used many different ways.

For starters, you could drink our bone broths as a warm pick-me-up on a winter’s day. Our beef bone broths go fantastically with a beef casserole or stew.

And our Mexican Spiced Beef Bone Broth serves as an excellent complement to a chimichurri – see our recipe for a bone broth chimichurri here (just swap out the beef bone broth for the Mexican Spiced!).

Beef Bone Broth Benefits

As someone who’s tried many diets and cuisines, the Boosh team know better than anyone how important it is to make sure you get all the nutrients you need. Your body is more than a temple; it’s also the whole congregation. Your health, wellbeing, and happiness all start with a good diet (except for the occasional cheat day, of course!). And incorporating Boosh beef bone broths into it is a great way to set on the right path.

There are loads of benefits to bone broths more generally, but here we briefly lay out those specific to beef bone broths so you know exactly what you could be missing out on!

Protein and collagen

Protein is a key part of any balanced diet – it helps muscles, joints, and tendons keep and grow their strength. We need it to survive and thrive. One thing that makes Boosh beef bone broths so special is the amount of protein they have. For a 350ml jar, our beef bone broths have the highest amount of protein of any Boosh broth!

Where does all this protein come from? As magical as our bone broths are, there’s no wizardry here! The trick is in the slow-simmering of bones – this allows for the gentle extraction of collagen into the broth. We’ve honed the process, too: 16 hours is the Goldilocks zone of slow-cooking times to ensure all that goodness gets into our bone broths. Not to boast, but that process makes sure our broths have up to 70% more collagen than our next leading competitor. Not bad!

Reducing waste from cattle farming

As we all know, doing our bit for the environment is really important. Introducing Boosh beef bone broths into your diet isn’t only green from a packaging perspective; it also helps to reduce farming waste by reusing animal products (the bones). Cattle farming is challenging to make sustainable for a number of reasons, so we all benefit from a bit of beef bone broth in our bowls.

Bone broth helps all your body’s bits

Everyone wants to eat food that’s good for them. Boosh bone broths, though, are good for your tummy, your body, your mind, and your soul (we can’t prove the last one!). Right off the bat, the lovely Christine Bailey wrote a great article for us on gut health and the goodness in bone broth to support it. And she really knows her stuff, you should trust her.

There’re loads of other health benefits to bone broth, too! Being a great source of phosphorous, magnesium, calcium, and glucosamine, introducing bone broth into your diet can help maintain bone and joint strength. These are especially prevalent in grass-fed cattle – beef bone broths for the win!

Your hair, nails, and skin all get a Boosh boost from bone broth as well. Collagen gets broken down into glucose and other amino acids during our tried-and-tested simmering process, and the body uses them to strengthen hair, nails, and skin. And as collagen production naturally slows down as you get older, our bone broths help you to age gracefully.

Yes, it’s all true – and more!

Bone broths have been around for thousands of years for a reason. I’m willing to bet that reason is because they’re just so good for you – the full list of benefits we’ve thought up is a bit mind-blowing, but maybe we’re biased. And with all that nutrient-maximising simmering that we at Boosh have perfected, it’s no wonder we won a ‘Great Taste’ award, beating out thousands of other entrants.
