This is an excellent way of getting benefit from the bones that are left from a roast beef joint.
If after straining you reduce it down to about 1 litre you will produce beef jus which is a classic sauce.
If you freeze the stock or jus in ice cube trays then you can always have the right amount available when you want it.
