Beef Bone Broth in the Instant Pot
This was my first time making beef bone broth in my Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker, 6Qt/1000W(IP) (aff link). It turned out great. I simply love the fact that I can have nutritious bone broth in 2 hours, plus time added for coming to pressure and cooling down - but still something that can be done in an afternoon rather than taking 2 days or more. I used the basic same method as I use for chicken broth.
I started with 3#'s beef bones. I used some beef rib bones and beef marrow bones. To ensure that my broth gelled I added 3 chicken feet. I also cut up one onion and about 3 carrots and several chopped cloves of garlic.
I put these ingredients in the IP.
I then gathered together 6 cups water, 1 tablespoon salt and 2 tablespoons vinegar (helps pull out minerals from the bones).
I added this to the IP.
Put the lid on, set the sealing knob to “Sealing” and pressed “Manual”. I set the time for 120 minutes.
I did a natural pressure release when the time was up (just let the pressure come down on its own). When it was done it looked like this...
I strained out the bones using a strainer set inside a large bowl..
I pour the broth into a measuring cup..
I put it in the fridge overnight to let the fat solidify so I could remove it..
When it was done, it was nicely gelled (as I tried to show in this pic)..
This bone broth came at a good time. My youngest son got sick, then my daughter and I felt like we were coming down with something as well. It was helpful to have on hand. I also made a second batch during the week to keep us well supplied.
