How to Make Bone Broth In the Instant Pot for the Carnivore Diet
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 2-4 hours Instant Pot or 12-24 hours Slow Cooker
3-5 lbs animal bones (raw or cooked)*
2 tsp salt
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Put bones, salt, and apple cider vinegar in instant pot. Add water until bones are just covered, do not overfill. Select manual setting on instant pot, high pressure, and set time for 120 minutes. Once times goes off to indicate cycle is done. Quick release the pressune, open instant pot and use large spoon to agitate bones and stir to break up any clumps. Put lid back on, select manual setting again, and set time for one hour. Once complete, strain broth using fine mesh sieve. Pour in bowl or large mason jars to cool. Warm up as needed for soup, or drink with salt to taste.
Broth is not an exact science. Practice makes perfect. If the first time it doesn’t gel or come out to your liking, try again. It usually doesn’t gel due to too much water in proportion to bones. Best to just use enough water to just cover the bones. We usually use bones that we have saved from making wings, steaks on the bone, and whole chicken carcasses. There is a lot of variance depending on type of animal and type of bone. Best to use bones with a lot of cartilage, like any bones with lots of joints. Chicken feet, chicken wings, chicken drumsticks, chicken backs, beef knuckles are great bone options.
We both prefer chicken bones for broth making. The taste and process are the most appealing. Beef and pork broth are very pungent when cooking, so for the comfort of others in your home, chicken may be the best option.
