Where to buy beef bones?

Hungry Like a Wolf Apr 28, 2010 05:29 PM

I'm going to attempt to make pho. However, wondering where I can get beef bones? Can I goto one of the Asian supermarkets, 99 Ranch, Hawaiian or San Gabriel Superstore and get it. I don't see it in the display, do I ask for them?

San Gabriel Superstore
1635 S San Gabriel Blvd, San Gabriel, CA 91776

99 Ranch
17713 Pioneer Blvd, Artesia, CA

      Yup, all the Chinese supermarkets will have them. Just ask. Same with Mexican grocery stores.

        I buy them for my dogs at ranch 99. .79cents a lbs and they look good enough that I want to eat my dogs after they eat those marrow bones.

          which bones do you ask for for your dog?

            soup bones. And as geekbruin says dogs eat the marrow and chew off any meat or fat and then you toss the bone or fill with peanut butter for a second go round. My staffordshire terrier and Rhodesian ridgeback can't crack the bones.

          Does anyone know where to get free range beef bones? I heard the cows kept in small stalls can have their bones splinter, which would be bad for my dog.

            This is not exactly responsive to your question but I get these marrow bones from Handi Mart. The bone part is fairly thick and my dogs (Siberian Huskies) can rarely get them to crack. I haven't had any problems with them. I take the bones away and throw them away after they've cleaned out the marrow.

            Raw poultry bones are also supposed to be fine for dogs as the splintering problem is supposed to be something that occurs after you cook the bones.

            If you're in the Glendale area, Handi Market has bones. They're 89 or 99 cents a pound.

            Handi Market, 2514 West Magnolia Boulevard, Burbank, CA 91505-3029

              Korean markets have them too. Family member just made Pho with bones from a local Korean market. Made right, better than anything you can buy in a restaurant.
