Long gone are the days of taking the whole day to cook homemade broth! Before we made Easy Instant Pot Beef Bone Broth in the Instant Pot, we occupied all the burners on the stove to make enough broth to last us a month.
The Instant Pot has made this process so much faster! We can make beef bone broth in under 90 minutes now. Doing this multiple times a day has made it so that we can stock up for more than 2-3 months. When choosing bones for your beef bone broth, I highly suggest using beef neck bones or oxtail. To make the best beef broth, you want to choose cuts that are filled with cartilage so the broth will be nice and thick (and tasty!)
This is so easy that you will never want to buy broth from the grocery store again. Stick the beef bones into the pot whole, chop and add the celery and onion. Throw in whole thyme, bay leaves, and carrots (if you use whole carrots, chop them up) and 4 whole garlic cloves.
When everything is in the pot, fill with water to the line right below the max line. The water from your veggies will add more water to the broth, so avoid over filling.
Put the top on the Instant Pot, and cook on high pressure for 90 minutes.
Once your broth is done in the pressure cooker, strain your broth into a pot getting rid of the veggies. Freeze and save!
Ignore the little white spots in our broth, we actually let it sit for an hour because we had to leave the house. What you see is just cooked impurities from the veggies and meat that collects on the top of the broth when it sits. You can take this off the top before you freeze if it happens to you.

You just made me want to cook your recipe now because of how simple you just made it. I really love drinking bone broth but I’m just too busy to make one, I hope I can make your recipe one of these days. I tried Au Bon Broth and it’s surprisingly tasty. It’s delicious like it was home made.
I just made the beef bone broth and once the pressure was release it splatter all over the kitchen stove and back splash, a lot of clean-up. You can not do a quick release, it needs to release naturally.
The recipe turned out great. Flavor is excellent, and simple to throw together. For those having issues with the quick release method, place a dish towel over the spout before releasing the pressure.
