  • Place beef bones, carrots, celery, onion, and garlic on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Roast in the preheated oven until browned, about 45 minutes.

  • Scrape roasted bones and vegetables into a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Add bay leaves, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, peppercorns, and boiling water. Close and lock the lid. Select Manual pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 120 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, 10 to 40 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Remove bones and vegetables and discard. Line a strainer with cheesecloth and set over a large bowl. Pour broth through strainer and discard solids.

  • Allow broth to cool. Remove and discard fat layer.

Cook's Note:

I use bones from roasts and grilled steak, but do not use bones that have BBQ sauce on them.

I won't make it in the instant pot again. The marrow in the bone was still inside the bone. Read More

I use grassfed organic beef bones with a small chuck of beef stew meat. I add a small bunch of Thyme and a jalapeno pepper. Very delicious and part of the routine I'm using to heal my damaged gut. Read More

I have been making beef bone broth in the slow cooker for several years, however, this is the first time making it using my IP since I received it last month for Christmas. This recipe seems to be spot on with the roasting time, the ingredients and the cooking time. It is now my new "go to" recipe for the future. Read More

I did use organic beef bones and organic vegetables. The broth was tasty and had a very gelatinous texture when cooled. I will definitely make it many times. Read More

No need to use my slow cooker anymore for bone broth - using the IP is much quicker and easier! This is a great base recipe that can be customized to your preferences. I used marrow bones I bought from the butcher. I took them out of the oven at 30 mins as the vegetables were starting to burn so maybe a slightly lower cook temp would be better. The broth didn't gel up like it normally does when I make it but the flavor was still great! Read More

This is the best broth I have ever cooked with. Making it a third time now, and it will sure not be the last. I leave out the salt so I can adjust for taste later. I freeze in smaller jars, and thaw as needed. This broth will take your recipes to the next level! AND its healthy!! Read More
