Oma’s Meatloaf

Prep 20 mins

Cook 40 mins

Serves 4

This is the Tupac of bone broth recipes, certified OG!  In the last few years bone broth has really grabbed the attention of the community. In fact, you can’t go to a farmers market these days without being bombarded by Birkenstock-wearing hippies trying to sell you the good stuff!

Very Low Lactose

  • 2 pounds of grass fed meat bones
  • 4 tbs of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 onion
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 8 cups of water


Brown the meat

In a large pot heat some olive oil over medium heat and add in your beef bones/meat. We want to brown them here, which usually takes about 5 minutes.

Prep the vegetables

Rinse your vegetables. Chop them up. And then add to the pot, along with 1 teaspoon of salt & pepper.

Bring to the boil

Pour water into cover, add the apple cider vinegar and bring to the boil. *If you have Candida Overgrowth or SIBO skip the apple cider vinegar as it can potentially contribute to bacterial imbalance.


Once boiling, turn it down to a simmer and let this broth of the gods cook away on a low heat for 6-8 hours.

Cooking Notes

My boys love the chicken version of this recipe. It seems to have a lighter flavor to it. So if you are looking to serve it for the whole family, maybe try that version before the beef one.

Also, if you have a big enough pot, consider doubling the ingredients and making a lot, as it stores really well in the freezer. I even use ice cube trays to break it out into smaller servings which I can add to any soup or sauce I’m making later during the week. At our house we can’t get enough of the stuff!
