Instant Pot Bone Broth

Tired of using packaged beef broth or stock that you know is loaded with preservatives and sodium? Me too, so I thought I would figure out how to make the best homemade bone broth right at home. It was way easier than I thought it would be using my pressure cooker (of course).

You could easily make this in your Crockpot Express or as an easy Ninja Foodi recipe too, doesn’t matter the brand. With just a few seasonings, and vegetables if you want to add them too you can make fresh broth to use in soups and gravy.

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have and use for all recipe creations.

Let’s talk about the difference between broth and stock shall we? Broth uses meat and sometimes vegetables as well versus this that uses beef bones or when you cook Instant Pot bone marrow which is what we chose. The reason why I love this is that you can adjust the sodium level which is great for those with high blood pressure.

It also tastes way better than packaged, of course. If you buy meat in bulk like we do you might have a bunch of other bones that you’ve been saving along the way. Those work too.

Are beef marrow bones good for bone broth?

Yes! They are high in collagen which is fabulous for your skin, hair and nails. It is also quite high in glucosamine which helps prevent joint pains and inflammation. I found these in the meat section and works better than just bones in my opinion. All you need is;

  • Beef bones and/or marrow
  • Water
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Onions, carrots and celery are great to add in large chunks
  • Seasonings of course, garlic and salt and pepper work great
  • Love bay leaves? Add those too, strain them out later

How to make bone broth in Instant Pot

Cooking in a pressure cooker is just my thang. You can make anything and everything so fast so that is where I went to make this. Yes you could do the same thing on the stovetop on medium high heat for a few hours but who wants to watch and make sure the contents don’t boil over. This way you throw it all in, set the time and come back when done.

Now for what you want to include inside. That is up to you. You can go for super simple with just onions and salt and pepper like we did here.

  • If you want to add more flavor and nutrition you can include large chunks of celery and/or carrots as well. I didn’t have those on hand this go around, no big deal.

As for seasonings use what you love. I add garlic to everything so in that went along with salt and pepper of course as well as some oregano and basil. When it is done you can taste and re-season if you want to add more flavor. The first time go light on them, taste, adjust, and make note of what you like best.

The recipe card at the bottom is printable so you can make notes as you go. Then ongoing, take that out and season it exactly as you wish. That is what makes homemade everything so great.

There other health benefits to using marrow too. The middle is actually a superfood so even if you don’t eat it directly, the nutrients will leach into the broth itself. Small bits will remain in it, but you could spoon all of it into a dish and serve it separately as well. Some love to spread it on toast.

Alternatively before you strain it like you see here you can scoop it out and put it in the pot below. After you drain the liquid, use an immersion blender to break it up so it will be included in the beef broth itself when stored.

Can you overcook bone broth in Instant Pot?

Using beef bones I would say that would be pretty hard. I would imagine that chicken bones would take less time for sure and may create a bitter taste if left in too long. You are really just trying to get the flavor of any bits of meat left on the bone and any marrow left inside.

Let’s say if you made our slow cooker oxtail one night you could save the bones and use them to make this instead of going to the store.

This really is a throw it all in one pot method to cook bone broth. Pressure cooking makes it faster than using a slow cooker for sure or on the stove top.

  • Place onions on bottom. Throw in large chunks of bones and vegetables too.
  • Sprinkle in garlic, apple cider vinegar and all spices. Pour in water.
  • Seal lid and lock the lid. Set to high pressure for 1 hours 30 minutes followed by a natural release of steam.
    • if using more than 3 lbs. I would increase to 120 minutes cooking time.
  • Put a metal strainer inside a large pot in the sink. Use pot holders to lift inner liner of pressure cooker out and pour into the strainer so the pot catches the liquid.
  • You could collect the bone marrow and put into a jar for spreading on toast, or throw everything in the strainer away.
  • Pour liquid in your pot into large mason jars. Set on countertop uncovered to allow broth to cool completely.
  • Set into fridge, with the lid on. When cooled for a few hours, take it out and use a spoon to scoop the layer of fat at the top off and throw away.

This will last for up to 4 days safely in the refrigerator in these sealed jars. Then use instead of water when making Instant Pot spaghetti or vegetable beef soup.

Can you freeze liquid broth?

Yes. If you aren’t going to use all of this in the next few days then you will want to store it for up to 3 months in the freezer instead. You can either pour it into an ice cube tray if you only want to use small amounts at a time later. If using more use pint size freezer bags instead.

Either way make sure the liquid is completely cooled and you have removed the layer of fat on the top first. If not it is more likely that it may grow bacteria. If you love batch cooking you could double this if you have a 10 quart pot. Mine is only 6 quarts so it barely fits what is listed below.

How to use bone broth

  1. Some swear by the health benefits so much that they will drink it straight up when warmed.
  2. Use it to make a variety of recipes such as:
    1. Beef noodle soup and Instant Pot chicken vegetable soup is a favorite amongst my kiddos
    2. I LOVE beef pot pie soup during the Winter months with a side of rolls
    3. Or use it to make a batch of Crockpot beef tips sometimes served over a bed of mashed potatoes (use it in those too instead of water or milk)

Now you can make all the things and know exactly what is in them. Homemade is always best. I do not always go this route when it is very intensive with lots of ingredients. The fact that this can just be thrown together and cooked while I walk away is a no brainer.
