We got some frozen grassfed beef bones on Saturday. They have been in the fridge since then and I went to put them on to make broth, but wondered if they were still good.

This is my first time making bone broth and the smell wasn't something I am used to, and I'm pregnant and very sensitive. They didn't smell bad, just different than fresh meat that I'm used to.

Are they still okay to use?

Should be fine. For the best flavor, roast them before boiling.

good to see you here

I just make chicken bone broth and occasionally pork, so I am no help! But I agree with Cristeen (she is wise ) that they are probably fine. I think they would smell foul (not just strange) if they were bad. Enjoy!!
