Bone broth is one of the best healing foods to include in your diet and something I consume on the regular.
It’s become a part of my morning routine and gut healing/autoimmune protocol. And with the instant pot on hand, you can whip up bone broth in 2 hours. Yes – 2 hours!
I used to make broth on the stove in my massive stock pot and would leave the stove on low heat for 12 hours (overnight). The broth always turned out great, but having your stove on for that long, especially in the summer, makes our little condo HOT. Plus, I was impatient and wanted it faster.
Then I switched over to the slow cooker. A much better option than the stove, but I still had to cook it for 12 hours. If you don’t have an instant pot, I recommend making this in your slow cooker. You’ll just have to cook the broth for anywhere from 8-12 hours to get the optimal benefits and nutrients.
Otherwise, get yourself an instant pot. Its inexpensive and is a huge time saver! I love making my Butter Chicken in the instant pot. It’s damn good! And only takes 8 minutes. Serve over some cauliflower rice and dinner is ready in no time.
I get asked all the time about making bone broth and I promise, by following this simple 10-step process, you’ll become a bone broth pro in no time! Hope you enjoy this simple and easy to follow recipe and share this healing goodness with your friends and family.
