You know we love making bone broth a regular part of our lifestyles. It is so easy to throw some bones, veggies and spices in a stock pot or crock pot and simmer for 24 hours. And we know we are getting all of the glorious benefits of the broth as well, like gelatin, magnesium, calcium and healthy fats.
Well, I recently got an Instant Pot (any other new ‘pot-heads’ here??) and whoa! It has changed my kitchen. An Instant Pot is basically a multi-functional tool that can act as a saute pan, crock pot among other things but most importantly an easy to use pressure cooker!
I have a stove top pressure cooker that I have been scared to use because I am afraid I am going to blow up my kitchen. The Instant Pot lets you set it and forget it! And, I can cook gelatinous bone broth in under 2 hours!!
Not only that but I can cook frozen meat in an hour (yes, last night I made a whole frozen ‘roast’ chicken in one hour!!), make soup, steam eggs…so many things! Believe me, you will be seeing a lot of Instant Pot recipes here from now on!
How do you make bone broth in the Instant Pot? Just put your normal ingredients for broth: bones, onions, celery, carrots, bay leaf and peppercorns are my staples. Add 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar and fill with water. Cook on high pressure for 90-120 minutes. Let the steam naturally release and voila…bone broth!
