Nutrient Dense Instant Pot Bone Broth Recipe

What is bone broth? Whether you call it bone broth or stock. You’ll definitely want to add this nutritious, traditional food to your routine. Bone broth is so awesome because it’s rich in collagen and certain amino acids that play a role in good gut health.

My Love of Bone Broth

Many years ago I heard about bone broth. I read about how healthy it is for your overall body such as; gut health, bone health, and even skin. This idea of cooking bones seemed super weird to me. I never even heard of it so decided to make it since it is packed with lots of nutrients. I do love me some chicken broth too. 3 years ago I was on a mission to balance my female hormones so this seemed like the right kind of food that I need have to help support my hormone journey.


Off to the store I went in search of chicken bones, feet, and necks. Buying these awkward chicken body parts are good for the broth because over time (the cooking process) sucks out all the collagen from the bones, especially from the knuckles and joints. My first attempt to make my bone broth is made from old a  school pressure cooker I bought at the store .


I was super scared because I also read horror stories about stove top pressure cookers exploding. I could have tried making my bone broth in a slow cooker but that would require a whole day of cooking it in my slow cooker. Pressure cooker just seemed faster. My first attempt is a success but I felt like I had to watch it. I  just couldn’t leave it and go on with my day.  I was scared it would explode!

Instant Pot Bone Broth

Making my bone broth a few times in my old school pressure cooker did the job. Then, I came across the wonderful paleo friendly cookbook called “Nom Nom Paleo: Food for humans”. 

This book was one of my first paleo cookbooks I bought,  so I enjoyed cooking from it and still do cook from this book. The Autor recently just released a new book so I highly suggest you check it out click here

I love cooking with my instant pot so making this bone broth recipe was super easy, and the best thing is that it make it worry free too. I place all my ingredients in the stainless steel bowl. Press my function, select my minutes, and close the lid. 2 HOURS later I have perfect collagen rich bone broth.  It’s quite remarkable how pressure cooking can transform meaty, collagen-filled meats and bones in to bone broth. Even tough meats can be transformed into perfectly shred-able meats in less time.

Making bone broth in my instant pot took the intimidation out of cooking this long slow broth and it made fast, super easy, and, totally do able. Even for the average cook. I use my bone broth in so many dishes, such as these…

  • Stews
  • Soup
  • Rice
  • Beans

Basically anything that would require water or broth. You can replace with good old healthy, nutrient dense, collagen rich bone broth 

  • Treat leaky gut syndrome
  • Overcome food intolerance and allergies
  • Improve joint health
  • Reduce cellulite
  • Boost immune system
  • maintain healthy skin
  • supports immune system
  • boost detoxification

My favorite way to enjoy bone broth is simply to drink it in a coffee mug. Sipping on this wonderful delicious broth on a cool morning, or even at night while binge watch Netflix is a great way to have this cup of broth. I give bone broth to my kids too, especially when they are sick. This cup of bone broth gives them all the nutrients they need to heal from that bad cold/flu bug they may be trying to fight off.

    It seems like bone broth is a huge trend these days. I’ve even seen it available in grocery stores but making it from scratch seems like a much better idea.
