Bone broth is so good for you it’s a bit crazy.
In today’s world where leaky gut and other autoimmune diseases are on the rise, it’s a good idea to keep your gut as healthy as possible. There are many a unique bone broth recipe – and they’re all good at helping seal your gut. If you’re on a ketogenic diet, this bone broth recipe will help you provide yourself the necessary essential minerals and amino acids you should have on a proper keto diet.
You can make bone broth in a big clay pot over an authentic Thai barbeque decorated with sardine can lids, or you can make any type of bone broth in any pot over a stove, you can also do them in a crockpot. Since we did the long, yet simple, bone broth simmer on low heat overnight-thing, I did not add any apple cider vinegar which if you do an instant pot style broth or a shorter boil, you should add some vinegar to helps extract more nutrients from the bones into the broth.

The bone broth herbs
The herbs you use consist of 3 whole white onions, coriander roots, fresh and/or dried galangal (we used both), cinnamon sticks, peppercorn, and 2 sticks of smashed lemongrass. The pouch is more of the same ingredients in powdered form which is used here locally to add an extra zest of the already good zest going in, so it’s not necessary. But if you can find some type of “Thai Bone Broth” powder pouch and it’s all natural ingredients (aka no MSG or sugar), then great, but it’s not needed to make the bone broth great.

The Bone Broth Bones
This bone broth recipe used pork rib and chicken quarters for it’s bones.
We first put all the herbs inside and cooked them for only a few minutes before adding in the bones.
Then you just let her burn on a low heat for a long time.
The longer the better.
As we were cooking this, we heard a group doing a Buddhist prayer chant. This was the first time I had ever heard this near my place and it started right after recording this clip here I’m adding in from our YouTube channel:
If you’re on a time crunch, you can speed up the nutrient extraction with vinegar, but if you have the time then a nice 12 hours minimum low to medium heat simmer will make the broth perfect. This one we did overnight. It was still hot in the morning, but the coals recently had gone out, we got them going again for another 3 hours then enjoyed the broth for a late breakfast.

A perfect late breakfast meal it was.
If you eat bone broth at least 4 days a week, then you’ll end up perfecting the craft in no time. If you eat bone broth that often, then you probably already know of the many bone broth health benefits.
Us humans have known about these benefits for thousands of years. We have been eating bone broth forever.
This bone broth recipe is nothing unique or new. But for the western Standard American Diet, it is new. That’s because bone broth has been pushed aside as a common thing to eat. So that’s why I eat bone broth every other day and why we made this bone broth recipe; to reinforce its greatness both in flavor and health benefits.
When you slow cook bones over a long period of time, you extract more nutrients from the bones.
This helps pull more amino acids, collagen, gelatin, minerals, and vitamins from the bones. The longer you cook, the more nutrients you extract. I’ve heard apple cider vinegar can help speed up the extraction process, but have yet to try it this way.
These bone broth nutrients help in many ways. They are essential to everyone, especially to you if you’re on a low carb diet and use fat for energy. When you’re in ketosis, you excrete more of these precious nutrients through your urine compared to others who are never in that metabolic state.
If you’re fasting, bone broth is ideal. It aids your body and helps it detox. It’ll do this while supporting your muscles and body at the same time. It’s a great thing to have around if you fast in any way.
From helping leaky gut (gelatin and collagen), to supporting sleep (minerals and glycine), joint and bone health (glucosamine), inflammation (amino acids), skin and hair health, and even weight loss, bone broth is an amazing meal to eat at any occasion. It should not be left for special occasions.

We slow cooked these ingredients over low heat for about 24 hours.
We could have dug in at the 12-hour mark, but instead, we decided to let it go on low heat for another 12 hours.
A full 24 hours is not always necessary when cooking bone broth over an open flame or on the stovetop.
- The lemongrass stalks should be smashed then cut in half.
- The galangal can be either dried or fresh – whichever is easier for you to attain.
- Add salt to taste. It may not be necessary if you have all the spices.
