Thoroughly washed minced meat with bones, put in a pot, fill with cold water and leave it in this form for 20-30 minutes, and then, without changing the water, hang over the fire and cook.

With a slight boil, the broth is cooked for 30–40 minutes, then it is filtered and used as a regular meat broth. A boiled meat can be used for the second. For those who have prepared cutlets for a picnic, it is not difficult to leave the bones to prepare the bone broth. To bones are better and faster digested, you need to cut them smaller.
During the cooking of the broth, foam and fat appear, they spoil the broth, give it a smack of fat and a cloudy tint. Therefore, foam and fat must be removed during the cooking process. If the foam sinks to the bottom when cooking the broth, pour a little cold water into it. The foam rises to the surface and can be removed.
