Healthy Healing Beef Bone Broth

Healthy Healing Beef Bone Broth from your Instant Pot

This Healthy Healing Beef Bone Broth has an amazing depth of flavor. It is full of essential vitamins and minerals that only bone broth can provide.
Preparing it in your Instant Pot saves time while still providing you with healthy ingredients to feed your family. I have also included Crockpot Instructions for those that do not have an Electric Pressure Cooker.

Beef Bone Broth is richly satisfying all by itself, but it can also be low fat if you take a bit of extra time. Straining and skimming the fat from your finished broth allows it to be a wonderfully nourishing base for soups, stews and other meals.

How to Make Beef Bone Broth for Trim Healthy Mama

If you are like me you like for your bone broth to fit within the Trim Healthy Mama Guidelines for all meal types.

  • Straight from the Instant Pot or from your Crockpot Beef Bone Broth is an S.
  • After straining and allowing your broth to be refrigerated so that the fat solidifies. Skim the fat from the top of the broth. This broth is still GREAT for S meals and may be able to be used in an E meal if you do not add any more fat.
  • For a Fuel Pull beef bone broth you have to skim the fat and then warm the broth just until liquid. Place 2-3 cups of ice into a colander and then pour the warmed broth over the ice to remove any trace amounts of fat that are left within the broth. (it will still gel when cooled)

The last method is my personal favorite and honestly how I prepare mine for the freezer.

Why I Love Making Beef Bone Broth in My Instant Pot

I love that I can make this beef bone broth in my Instant Pot 6qt Duo or I can make it my my Instant Pot 3qt Mini in about 2 or 3 hours for S mode. These appliances have saved me so much time when prepping my Trim Healthy Mama meals, I can’t tell you what a sanity saver they are.

  1. We raise our own beef. Last time we had it butchered they left a considerable amount of meat on the bones. Is this a problem for making bone broth? Should I roast the bones, because of the amount of meat on them, longer? If so, how long?
    Leave the meat on when I put all items in my crock pot? ( No insta pot at my house) I do have a regular stove top pressure cooker. Could I use this?
    Also I don’t drink coffee. Do I have to put this in the mix?

    1. I would roast them with the meat on them 🙂 It shouldn’t cause a problem when making the broth it will just add flavor. The bits will not be in the finished broth since you strain it. I would roast for maybe 10-15 min longer just so that it is cooked through.
      You can use your stove top pressure cooker, I just don’t know what the timing would be. The coffee is optional but you may want to add a bit of red wine vinegar, the acid helps to release the minerals from the bones :).

  2. I never thought to add coffee to my bone broth. That’s brilliant!

    Do you have a recipe for chicken bone broth as well. I make a lot of broth, but would love for it to have more flavor.
