I recently purchased a side of beef.  It came with soup bones.  I am not sure what to do with them.  If anyone has any receipes to make a stock that I could freeze for later, I would love to hear from you.  Otherwise, do I just cook them up as a tasty treat for the dogs?

I throw them in the crock pot with a carrot, onion, whole peppercorns and a little salt. Cover with water and cook on low for 10-12 hours. Usually, I just let it go overnight. Then just strain it and freeze. Some people like to roast the bones on a baking tray in the oven first. You probably also have celery, so could add that. I don’t have it here. Don’t even need to peel the vegs first, just wash them off.

I (sorta) have a farm in Africa.

Roast them with carrots, onion, celery until they are browned. Then simmer them in a large kettle for several hours to an entire day. Skim the fat and can or freeze the broth. Feed the dogs the bones and carrots. some people say no onions for dogs but most won’t eat them anyway.

I’d like to suggest a bit of caution with the bones and dogs. Depending on how cooked the bones are—and how aggressive your dog is with them—the bones may splinter as your dog munches on them. (Read: splinter just like cooked chicken bones.)

The greatest hazard to dogs from bones is when the bones have been sawn long and thin with a sharp edge. Those can lacerate and also wedge between teeth. Dogs and cays will chew the knuckles off the bones and leave the shanks.
