1. Place beef bones/oxtail pieces 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/oxtail pieces by 2 inches (5 cm). Bring to boil.

3. Simmer, covered, for 3 to 5 hours until meat is fork-tender. Strain, reserving stock; chill and skim off surface fat. Meanwhile, remove meat from bones, cut into bite-sized pieces and reserve; discard vegetables, fat and bones. Add reserved meat to stock and use for beef soups or stews.
