Learn how to make homemade beef bone broth using an Instant Pot pressure cooker. This nutrient-rich broth is packed with collagen, minerals, and vitamins, making it a healthy and flavorful addition to various recipes. With just a few ingredients and minimal prep time, you can enjoy this nourishing broth in no time!


  • 4 pounds beef bones (preferably a mix of marrow bones, knuckle bones, and meaty bones)
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • Water, as needed


  1. Rinse the beef bones under cold water to remove any blood or impurities.
  2. Place the bones in the Instant Pot and add enough water to cover them by 1 inch.
  3. Add the chopped carrots, celery, onion, garlic cloves, apple cider vinegar, bay leaf, peppercorns, and sea salt to the pot.
  4. Close the lid of the Instant Pot and ensure the pressure valve is set to the sealing position.
  5. Select the 'Soup' function and set the cooking time to 120 minutes at high pressure.
  6. Once the cooking time is complete, allow the pressure to release naturally for 20 minutes. Then, perform a quick release to release any remaining pressure.
  7. Carefully open the lid and strain the broth through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl or storage containers.
  8. Discard the bones and vegetable solids. If desired, you can pick off any meat from the bones and add it back into the broth.
  9. Let the broth cool for a bit before refrigerating. Once completely chilled, you can remove any solidified fat from the top.
  10. Store the beef bone broth in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze for longer storage.
