Beef Stock

1kg of beef bones1 small onion, peeled and halved
1 carrot, rough chopped
1 tomato, halved
1 bay leaf
olive oil
1 handful parsley stalk
4 celery sticks, chopped
12 peppercorns
pinch of salt
3 litres water

Firstly, roast the bones in a pre-heated oven at 180 C/ Gas Mark 4, till lightly browned, should take around 20-30 minutes. Place all ingredients in a large pan or stock pot and lightly sweat till softened and then cover with the water. Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer for 30 to 60 minutes, skimming off any foam or scum,that rises to the surface, depending how intense you want your stock. Strain through a muslin lined sieve and use straight away or cool and store.
