Instant Pot Beef Bones

Cook Time2 hrs 5 mins
Course: Soup
Author: Forrest Green Farm


  • 3-4 lb FGF grass-fed beef bones
  • 3 whole carrots, cut in half
  • 4 celery stalks, cut in big chunks
  • 1 onion, sliced in half
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar


  • Preheat your oven to bake at 400 degrees.
  • Place the beef bones in a glass baking sheet, and sprinkle with salt if desired.
  • Roast the bones for 30 minutes, flip them to their other side, and then roast for another 20 minutes.
  • While the bones are roasting, prepare the vegetables for the broth.
  • Place the roasted bones into your Instant Pot, and then add the carrot, celery, onion, garlic, bay leaf, salt, and apple cider vinegar.
  • Fill the Instant Pot with filtered water until it reaches about an inch below the max fill line.
    Place the lid on, and seal, and set to manual high pressure for 75 minutes.
  • Once the broth is finished, remove the large bones and vegetable pieces, and then strain the broth through a fine mesh strainer.
  • Pour the strained broth back into the Instant Pot, if using immediately after for soup, or allow to cool and freeze for future use.


Note: When using beef marrow bones, it's best to allow the broth to cool slightly, so that you can scoop the excess fat off of the top before making soup.
TIP: Our favorite way to freeze our bone broth is with Souper Cubes!  Available online or at the Market on the Farm.
