How to make bone broth in a electric pressure cooker, such as the Instant Pot, as well as slow cooker tips. Consider bone broth to be a richer, velvetier broth.
It can be used in recipes that call for stock or broth, but it also makes a delicious and filling soup on its own. Read on for our tips or jump to our favorite Instant Pot or Slow Cooker Bone Broth Recipe.
We love bone broth and make it frequently thanks to our Instant Pot and slow cooker. Bone broth can be made in a pressure cooker in half the time it takes in a slow cooker, but both are excellent options. We’ve included methods for both below; it’s all up to you to figure out what works best for you and your schedule.
Why You Should Make Bone Broth and How to Make It
So, what exactly is bone broth? Bone broth is simply stock (such as this homemade chicken stock) that has been cooked for so long that the tendons and connective tissues have dissolved and the bones have become fragile. More collagen and nutrients dissolve into the broth as a result of the extra long cooking time.
Many people believe it has healing properties for the joints, gut, and immune system because of this. We’re not nutritionists, so we won’t go into detail, but I can tell you that bone broth has a richer, more intense flavor than regular stock or broth. It’s fantastic as a warm beverage or a light soup.
My favorite additions to mine are fresh pepper, minced ginger, and herbs. Consider it a savory tea.

It’s also a great substitute for stock in soups, and because it’s more flavorful, it can make soups and stews even more delicious. It’s fantastic in our Lemony Chicken Vegetable Soup.
Bone broth can be made on the stovetop, but it will take a long time — more than 24 hours. We use a pressure cooker or a slow cooker to make it because we can’t commit to standing next to a simmering pot for that long. A pressure cooker takes about 4 hours to cook, while a slow cooker takes 24 to 48 hours to cook.
Roast your bones for the richest, most intensely flavored broth. We simply arrange them on a baking sheet in one layer and roast them until golden brown in a very hot oven. It takes about 30 minutes to complete.
All you have to do in both the pressure cooker and the slow cooker is layer everything into the pot, close the lid, and cook. When the connective tissues have dissolved and the bones are brittle, the broth is done. After that, strain the broth and enjoy it. It lasts 5 days in the fridge and 3 months or more in the freezer.
Our Favorite Instant Pot or Slow Cooker Bone Broth Recipe
Consider bone broth to be a richer, velvetier stock. In most recipes, bone broth and stock can be used interchangeably. When it comes to enjoying it on its own, we prefer bone broth because it has a stronger flavor. Because bone broth takes longer to cook and contains more collagen and nutrients, many people believe it has healing properties for the joints, gut, and immune system.
We use chicken bones most of the time, but adding pork or beef bones is never a bad idea. Keep in mind that adding beef, pork, or other meat bones to the mix will lengthen the cooking time. This recipe makes a great stock if you’re short on time. Reduce the cook time to 1 hour for general-purpose stock.
