Bone Soup/Bone Broth in the Instant Pot (Paleo, Whole30, AIP)

Instant Pot Beef Bone Broth (paleo, AIP,Keto) Bone Broth has been in the forefront a lot these days with GAPS, Paleo, AIP and Keto diets all reinforcing its benefits. And rightfully so! Bone broth stock is a great place to find all of the valuable amino acids, collagen, gelatin and trace minerals. By regularly drinking bone broth or using it in recipes, you can help heal your gut and promote healthy gut integrity while reducing  permeability and inflammation. Hence Bone Broth is recommended in all healing diets. Our ancestors used up all parts of an animal including the carcass and bones. They cooked bones, skin, ligaments, feet and tendon over slow heat over a period of days resulting in a soup (broth) that had medicinal qualities!  Amino acids like glutamine, glycine as well as collagen are present in bone broth that have tremendous healing power by reducing permeability and inflammation. Bone broths also contain minerals in forms that your body can easily absorb: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and others. They also contain chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine, which reduce inflammation and consequently arthritis and joint pain.Here are some of the benefits of drinking bone broth regularly:

  • Treat leaky gut syndrome (one of the causes of autoimmune diseases)
  • Overcome food intolerances and allergies
  • Improve joint health
  • Boost immune system

To make beef bone broth properly at home, it is very important to get organic grass-fed bones from your local farmers market. For making a chicken bone broth, you can first cook a whole chicken and then use the carcass and bones from the already cooked chicken. isn’t that a win-win with nothing going waste!

Bone broth has been an important component of my healing diet as well. And here is how I cook my Bone Broth. There are lots of recipes out there showing how to make bone broth and everyone’s recipe is basically same with slight differences in the ingredients and spices/herbs used which consequently lead to slightly different flavors. I have been making bone broth for the last two years and just thought of posting my recipe now since my clients often ask me how I make it. So I thought of doing a video too. In the video I show using beef bones and  I roast them first in the oven for a bit however that is not a necessary step and you can make the bone soup skipping this step too.


I put very low level of spices because I like to have a very light / mild flavor in the soup and like to enjoy the actual flavor of the soup more. I use some whole spices like bay leaves, a piece of cinnamon and cloves etc. Fresh ginger also adds a very nice flavor. Some folks pay a lot of importance to getting their broth to ‘gel’! But that is really not that important. Whether a broth will gel or not depends upon the gelatin content of the broth which in turn depends upon what kind of bones you used and also the amount of water. Using chicken legs and feet for instance will give you a more gelatinous broth.

  1. I make bone broth pretty regularly too, especially after I’ve cooked a whole chicken. But recently I’ve been making beef bone broth and also cook the bones in the oven first to release the flavor. They are pretty expensive, but I do so enjoy it knowing it is also good for the body.

    • That’s great Loretta. Do you know that you can use the bones twice to make the broth? That way they don’t seem that expensive!
