I’m asked all the time about bone broth – how to make it and how to store it – so my husband, Mike, and I created a video to show you just how easy it is to make Instant Pot bone broth.
Although I prefer making Instant Pot bone broth, as it only takes 2 hours to cook, you can also make it in your slow cooker, which takes 12-24 hours.
Bone broth has been a HUGE support in healing my gut, and I always recommend it to anyone looking for better health. It really is liquid gold! The idea of making my own bone broth completely overwhelmed me at first, until I finally gave it a try and realized just how easy it is. Once you try this recipe for yourself, you’ll wonder why you’ve ever purchased it from the store. Not only does bone broth have so much more flavor than store bought, but it’s also a great way to use up scraps that you would normally toss.
I believe that bone broth should be EASY and stress-free, so feel free to adjust this recipe to whatever works best for you! Have leftover short rib bones, or chicken bones from a rotisserie chicken? Feel free to use them here! I store any random bones I have in a zip top bag in the freezer, until I’m ready to make broth. One chicken carcass is plenty for a batch of this delicious, gut-healing broth. Also, feel free to use any vegetables that you like, along with any vegetable scraps that you have on hand. Don’t like carrots or onion, etc – simply leave them out of this recipe and replace them with something else that you love!
Looking for delicious ways to get bone broth into your diet?
I don’t personally love drinking broth straight up, but I do LOVE it blended with a tablespoon of ghee or grass-fed butter, a small piece of fresh ginger (or approximately ¼ teaspoon ground), a small piece of fresh turmeric (or approximately ¼ teaspoon ground), plus sea salt and pepper, to taste. This is literally the only way I’ll drink bone broth.
Making bone broth into soups & stews are another great way to get these gut-healing nutrients in. Here’s some of my favorite recipes:

Makes bone broth in just 2 hours, versus 12-24 in a slow cooker.
This is how I freeze my broth. Once the broth pucks are frozen, I store them in a zip top back (labeled with the date). Each silicone tray will give you 12 – 1/3 cup individual broth pucks, so you can defrost only what you need.
Pre-made Bone Broth:
Purchasing pre-made broth is a great option if you don’t want to make your own. I use both Bonafide Provisions & Kettle and Fire (I get both at Whole Foods)
