Better Consommé

When I was little,  my mother used to make me this clear soup with ground beef, it's so simple and yet so tasty. Even though it does not compare with a long and slower simmer of bone broth, it is a quick and nutritious way to an easy bowl of soup. 

Better "Consommé"

  • 1/2 lbs grass fed ground beef
  • 3 c cold water
  • 1/4" slice ginger, smashed
  • sea salt to taste
  • garnish with chopped green onions and parsley ( optional)

  1. In a small pot, add all ingredients and give it a stir
  2. soak for 20 mins until the blood has been drown out of the ground meat
  3. Bring mixture to boil uncovered for 2-3 mins
  4. Cover and turn heat off and let sit for 5-10 mins
  5. Laddle into bowl and garnish with chopped green onions and  parsley

You can serve only the broth or with the ground meat. If you want to enjoy the traditional style of consume, you can strain through a sieve. 

This make a super quick broth to serve with meal or as a stand alone snack.
