Are you having trouble finding a low FODMAP beef stock? You're not the only one, promise! Finding low FODMAP stocks and broths can feel next to impossible. But, don't worry! Making your own beef stock is so easy you won't even miss the storebought stuff.
Because we're friends, I'll let you in on a little secret. Bones freak. me. out. So transitioning to homemade beef stock has been a lesson in cooking and personal growth for me.
But, once I experienced the magic of homemade beef stock, I can tell you I'm not going back! Like, ever! This beef stock has a rich, silky texture and a clean, deep flavour that adds a little magic to any recipe it touches!
The base recipe I've created has no FODMAPs, so you can add as much as you'd like to your recipes without adding to your FODMAP load. But, that also means it's a little light on seasonings. Heads up, the longer you cook the stock, the deeper the flavour will become. The recipe below recommends 8-10 hours in the slow cooker, but you can cook it for up to 24 hours for an even deeper flavour.
Having some meat on your bones will also increase the flavour. If you can't find meaty stock bones, throw in some stewing beef or some short ribs to pump up the beef flavour.
Think this low FODMAP beef stock sounds great, but you don't have time to try it now? Don't worry! You can PIN THIS POST for later.
Keep It FODMAP Friendly

This rich, savoury flavour of this beef stock is perfect for everyday recipes. But, if you want to add more depth to the stock, feel free to add 1 cup of leeks and one stalk of celery to boost the flavour. Just remember to add one serving of polyols per cup of broth to the FODMAP math of your final recipe.
