Instant Pot Beef Bone Broth Recipe. Bone Broth is associated with enhanced immunity, anti-inflammation, soothing the gut, improving digestion, strengthening joints, and benefitting skin.

I’m excited to share this instant pot beef bone broth recipe with you! If you are intimidated by this idea, don’t be! Initially I was scared of making my own, but once I finally did it I realized it really is not that difficult and very reward and economical.

Instant Pot Beef Bone Broth Recipe

A few years ago I was having gut inflammation issues and a nutritionist recommended incorporating bone broth into my diet. At first I just started purchasing it from the freezer section at Whole foods (Kitchen Witch Broth and Bonafide Provisions are my faves). I was afraid if I made it myself and had to handle those bones that I wouldn’t want it anymore. But I was wrong. I finally decided to give it a try myself and now I’m hooked. It is simple to make, tastes amazing, and it is more economical to make it yourself.

Instant Pot Beef Bone Broth Recipe Ingredients

For this recipe you will need an instant pot, beef bones (I order mine from Good Eggs grocery delivery service because I’m too intimidated to buy them at the store…. baby steps for me, don’t judge) veggies, salt and pepper, herbs, bay leaves and a little splash of apple cider vinegar. I roast my bones before the instant pot step because word on the street is that the flavor is superior when you pre-roast.


You can store the bone broth in any glass jar but for freezing I recommend wide mouth mason jars, in my experience they don’t break as often.

Why Should I Use Bone Broth?

If you are wondering why you should think about having bone broth I can share with you some of the reasons that I personally am drawn to bone broth. Bone broth benefits include enhanced immunity, anti-inflammation, soothing the gut, improving digestion, strengthening joints, and benefitting skin.

When Do I Use Bone Broth?

You can use bone broth in place of regular store bought beef broth in most recipes and you can also just heat it up and enjoy a cup any time of day. I do this a lot and lovingly call it my “meat tea.”  Sometimes I’ll drink it first thing in the morning, and other days I’ll drink it as a late night snack. You do you.

Warning: before you heat it, it often is pretty gelatinous looking- that’s a good sign! Don’t worry, once it is heated it will look like normal liquid.

  • 2-3 lbs beef bones I prefer pastured, grass-fed
  • 2-3 celery stalks large chopped
  • 2-3 carrots large chopped
  • 2 leeks (or you can substitute with 1 onion) large chopped
  • handful fresh herbs rosemary, thyme or sage are good options
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt I use large pink Himalayan rock salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper I use whole peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 6-8 Cups filtered water enough to fill instant pot about 2/3 full.


Roast Bones

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

  2. Place bones on baking rack and roast in oven for 30 minutes.

Create Bone Broth in Instant Pot

  1. Add roasted bones and all other ingredients into your instant pot except for the water.

  2. Pour filtered water over ingredients until your pot is about 2/3 full, and never going above the MAX fill line. I usually use about 6-7 cups of water for this step.

  3. Secure lid on the instant pot securely according to the instruction manual, making sure the valve is set to sealed. Using the Manual button set the instant pot on high pressure for 120 minutes.

  4. After the 120 minutes allow the broth to naturally release, which will take about 45 minutes. 

Straining and Cooling the Bone Broth

  1. Very carefully strain the bone broth into a large casserole dish. Add a handful or two of large ice cubes and stir around to bring the temperature of the broth down a bit. (Picture of this step can be found below recipe instructions)

  2. Spoon off the top layer of fatty liquid and throw away. Or you can wait to do this step once the broth is in the jars.

  3. Pour broth carefully into glass jars. I like to use 24 oz wide mouth mason jars. This recipe makes about 3 24 oz jars, plus a little extra.

  4. Store jars in the refrigerator that you plan to use in the next 3-5 days, and in the freezer that you plan to use in the next 5-6 months. Leave 1-2 inches of headspace at the top so they won't break in the freezer.

    homemade broth is really the only way to go for me. I have never bought a package of broth, my mom always made from scratch at home and to me that makes all the difference!

  14. Parveen Atwill says

    I made this today and followed the recipe to to a tee and i am disappointed that it is lacking flavor… Not sure why….

    • Hi Parveen, thank you for trying out this recipe and for your comment. I’m sorry that the broth was not as flavorful as you hoped, I would recommend adding less water next time if you want it to be more flavorful. My bone broth is generally subtle in flavor, I make it mostly for the health benefits, but I can understand wanting to make it more flavorful and hope that does the trick. Did you roast the bones before hand? That should help in flavor as well.

  15. Sondra Barker says
