  • Roast the beef bones in a 350°F oven for 45–60 minutes.
  • While the bones are roasting, sauté the chopped onion in olive oil or tallow over low heat. When the onion begins to become translucent, add the minced garlic and sauté a minute or two longer.
  • Add the remaining ingredients, including the roasted bones when they are done, making sure to add every last drop of drippings from the pan to the tomato sauce.
  • Simmer slowly for several hours. The gelatin from the bones and the chicken feet will help to thicken the tomato sauce and give it wonderful flavor.
