Recipe

Veal Stock is a deep brown color, with more body than chicken stock. It is wonderful for flavoring rich sauces like the one accompanying Seared and Roasted Duck Breasts, lending a special complexity and depth. For a brown stock like this one, the bones are browned in the oven before they are cooked in liquid.

Yield: Makes 2 quarts

Ingredients

  • 8 pounds veal bones
  • 2 medium onions, cut into medium dice
  • 4 medium carrots, cut into medium dice
  • 4 stalks celery, cut into medium dice
  • 1 head garlic, halved crosswise
  • ½ cup tomato paste
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Arrange the bones in 1 layer in a large roasting pan or 2 smaller pans and roast 45 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and roast, turning every 10 minutes or so, until the bones and vegetables are golden brown, another 30 to 45 minutes.

With a large spoon or tongs, transfer the bones and vegetables to a stockpot. Pour off any fat from the roasting pan, add 2 to 3 cups water to the pan, and scrape up browned particles from the bottom.

Pour the liquid into the stockpot over the bones and vegetables and add water as needed to cover them by 3 inches. Bring to a boil over high heat; then reduce the heat to medium and simmer 4 to 5 hours, skimming frequently. When done, the stock will have full flavor and color.

Strain through a fine sieve into a large pot and reduce over high heat until 2 quarts remain. Cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until the fat solidifies, and lift it off the soup. Refrigerate up to 1 week. After 3 days, bring to a boil. Then boil, skim, and cool every 2 days; or freeze.

Variation:

For lamb or beef stock, substitute lamb or beef bones.
