A while back, we talked about how to make homemade bone broth easily and how to store it because it’s one of the easiest ways to unlock the wealth of essential nutrients inside that hard shell of a bone, which many of us think that it has nothing left to offer once we get off the meat around it.
The truth is that a bone offers pretty much everything we need in order to maintain a good health.
But, there’s a problem.
Many of us don’t have the time to make bone broth at home. Even with a wonderful slow cooker’s help, we still have to find a way to get the bones, cook them, and then store the bone broth properly. If you can manage to do all that, by all means, do it. You have my full support!
My problem is that ever since I moved to Austin, I haven’t been able to find beef bones in the grocery stores here. Without THE ingredient, no bone broth for me unless I buy the broth in a box from the store, which is insanely expensive and who knows what kind of bones they use and how much preservatives they added in before packaging it up.
However, I’d love to have bone broth handy in my kitchen at all times for a number of reasons.
- It makes my dishes extra flavorful.
- It contains tons of collagen, which promotes healthy skin and protects against the signs of aging due to sun damage. (It’s super important when you live in Texas.)
- I had surgeries on both of my knees 8 years ago. Ever since then, Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), including glucosamine, has become my friend who helps reduce my joint pain and inflammation. Guess what? Bone broth offers lots of GAGs!
You might not cook as often as I do; you might not live in Texas; you might not have surgeries on your joints but bone broth is generally good for digestion, joint health, and skin health. In addition, it contains minerals like magnesium, potassium and calcium from bone breakdown.
Luckily, Kettle & Fire reached out to me introducing their shelf-stable bone broth after reading my article about why broth is the best wellness trick you’ve never tried on Elite Daily.
Considering my situation, I decided to give it a shot. First things first, I read the label on their package.
WHAT’S IN THE BONE BROTH & HOW EXACTLY IS IT MADE?
Kettle & Fire is very open about sharing their bone broth recipe. Here’s the full ingredient list.
– marrow bones from pasture raised, grass-fed cows
– organic carrots
– organic onions
– organic celery
– organic bay leaves
– organic parsley
– apple cider vinegar
– a pinch of black peppercorn
– sea salt
If you can get the ingredients and would like to cook it at home, what you can do is to throw everything in a slow cooker, fill it up with water and let it cook on low for 24+ hours. Here’s how Kettle & Fire does it.

After learning what exactly they use in the bone broth including what type of bones are selected and the entire cooking process, I felt more confident to try their product. So I went ahead and made a super easy egg drop soup using Kettle & Fire bone broth as the soup base. The result? I absolutely LOVED it! The flavor of the broth was amazingly rich and meaty.
It turns out that Kettle & Fire bone broth is the best bone broth you could possibly find on the market.
WHAT MAKES KETTLE & FIRE THE BEST BONE BROTH ON THE MARKET?
No preservatives or additives added at all.
Kettle & Fire is the first and the only shelf-stable beef bone broth. It means that – without ANY preservatives or additives – the broth will be good at room temperature for up to 2 years. You don’t need to freeze the broth. If you can’t finish one package after opening, refrigerate it. But, I highly doubt that you would have leftovers, which brings me to my second point.
The broth tastes absolutely amazing because they are picky when it comes to ingredients.
100% of Kettle & Fire bones are from organic, pastureraised and grass-fed cattle. On top of the bones, they also add in organic fresh vegetables, organic herbs, and organic spices. The bone broth is cooked for over 24 hours for maximum collagen extraction as well as a big boost of flavor. When enjoying, you only need a little salt and pepper to taste.
Kettle & Fire is the only shelf-stable bone broth on the market.
This means that – without ANY preservatives or additives – their bone broth will be good at room temperature for up to 2 years. It’s the only company that has a fresh, never-frozen bone broth that won’t go bad, doesn’t require freezing.
Kettle & Fire doesn’t ship with harmful styrofoam containers and dry ice of any kind. The product is shelf stable because we leverage $6mm+ of packaging equipment to seal the package in a vacuum, so no air can get in and cause the product to spoil.
Cheap (or free) shipping.
Because the broth is never frozen, they can ship anywhere in the U.S., often for less than $10. And, when you buy 6 or more units, shipping is free!
HOW TO INCLUDE BONE BROTH IN YOUR DAILY HEALTHY COOKING
There are many ways to enjoy bone broth. First and foremost, simply simmer and sip.
Feeling hungry at 3pm when you are trying to lose weight? Sipping a good bone broth will kill your hunger without pumping up your calorie intake.
Training for a Marathon or trying to build muscle? Make drinking bone broth part of your fitness routine because the bone broth is nutrient-dense. It has more vitamins, nutrients, and minerals to help you reach your goals faster.
Feeling under the weather? Relax with a steaming cup of broth. No spoon is needed.
Personally, I love to cook with bone broth. You can use bone broth instead of water to cook your grains like rice, quinoa, and risotto, etc. You may add bone broth to your slow cooker for a more flavorful roast. Basically, any recipe that calls for beef broth or water, it can be substituted with bone broth for more nutrients and flavors.
My favorite way of cooking with bone broth is to make soups. In my opinion, the world’s easiest soup is this Egg Drop Soup I learned from my mom. We didn’t have such good ingredients in China, so my mom normally uses water to make the soup. Now that I have bone broth, I can proudly say that my Egg Drop Soup is so much better than yours, mom!

Legit Chinese-style egg drop soup that takes 5 minutes to make and it's nutritiously delicious!
2 minPrep Time
3 minCook Time
5 minTotal Time
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons cold water
- 1 carton of Kettle & Fire bone broth
- 1 stem green onion, chopped
- Salt to taste
- Sesame oil to taste
- In a small saucepan, bring beef bone broth to a boil.
- In the meanwhile, beat the eggs in a small bowl, dissolve cornstarch in cold water in another small bowl, and chop the green onion. Set aside.
- Once the broth is boiling, stir in dissolved cornstarch, followed by the beaten eggs. Then immediately start stirring so that the eggs are evenly distributed in the broth; stir constantly for 30 seconds, or until the soup is thickened.
- Turn off the heat; taste and add a pinch a salt if desire. Dish, drizzle with sesame oil and garnish with green onion. Serve immediately.
Regular broth can also be used as the soup base. Another option is to dissolve one cube of chicken bouillon in 2 cups of boiling water, then follow the recipe to finish making the soup.
