1. Place Van Osch Farms beef bones with chunks of vegetables (such as carrots, onions and celery) in lightly oiled Dutch oven or stockpot. On stove top, brown over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
2. Season as desired and add enough cold water to cover bones by 2 inches (5 cm). Bring to boil.
3. Simmer, covered, for 3 to 5 hours. Strain, reserving stock; chill and skim off surface fat. Meanwhile, discard vegetables, fat and bones.
