Soup stock from beef bones

We love soup at our house – we eat it for lunch almost every single day – especially during the fall and winter.  Good soup is easy to make and the best soaps use a stock made from beef or chicken bones.

Vegetable Beef Soup
Put about 1lb beef bones in pressure cooker.  Add 6 cups water and 4 tomatoes or 1 can tomato paste .  Put lid and weight on.  Bring to a boil.  Let pressure cook with weight rocking for 30 minutes.  Turn off heat. Let pressure come down.  Or simmer in large pot for 1-2 hours .  Remove meat and bones and set aside.  Strain the liquid if you choose and return it to the pot.  Once meat has cooled you may slice it up.

Add to pot of stock:
 3 stalks celery diced
1 large carrot shredded.
1 bay leaf.
3-4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon thyme
 1 tablespoon parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon pepper
the diced cooked meat taken from the bones
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 cup orange lentils
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30-60 minutes. Or until lentils are soft. Add fine rice noodles if desired.  Season with salt and pepper. and add more water until it is about 1 ” from top of pan.
