Let me start by saying that I am not a big fan of store bought broth. I use it on emergency days but nothing compares to the flavor of a homemade broth or stock. There is no science in making broth; actually it is quite simple. Today I am going to show you how to make fat free broth.
My favorite broth is always made from meats that are cooked in my Crock-Pot. Every time I cook a pork roast, beef roast, chicken or even ham I make sure to save every drop of broth that comes from it. I love using slow cooking bags because it is easier to move and store the broth without making a mess.
How to Make Broth
- Meat of your choice.
- 1 cup of water for every 2 pounds of meat.
- 1 Knorr Chicken Flavor Bouillon for every cup of water.
- Season your meat as you always do. Place it in your Crock Pot or large pot.
- Add the water according to the weight of your meat.
- Break up the chicken bouillons by hand and add to the water.
- Cover and let it cook slowly until your meat is tender and ready to serve.
- Remove your meat and you have a delicious broth.
Here we have how to make fat free broth.
Refrigerate your broth over night. This step will make the fat come to the top of the broth and make it hard, separating the fat from the broth.
Can you believe that all the white pieces in the picture is fat?
Remove all the big pieces of fat from your broth.
Look at how much I pulled out from my pork roast broth.
It is so thick that my kids thought that this was mashed potatoes.
Remove the rest of the fat using a small strainer.
As easy as one, two, three!
You will end up with a Fat Free Broth that will taste as good as any broth you have ever had.
I always freeze the broth right away and I use the one that I made from the previous roast for the gravy, soup or whatever I am making that day. It is so delicious and easy to make!
