Upgrade Your Kitchen with Instant Pot

Upgraded Bone Broth with Instant Pot #keto #paleo #lowcarb

Making bone broth in a pot or slow cooker and ready for a serious upgrade? Instant Pot! I’ve been making batches of bone broth, ready in 1 hour and the bones are totally broken down! It’s like a slow cooker on CRACK!

Last month, one of my girlfriends was overjoyed about a kitchen appliance; the Instant Pot, that made bone broth in under an hour, completely disintegrating the bones,  producing the richest bone broth in the whole wide world.

“No way that’s actually a thing”, I challenged her.

Sparked my interest, though. Not only because I drink a lot of bone broth (read: multiple cups daily), but she claimed that this Instant Pot machine acted as a 7 in 1 appliance: a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, saute/browning, yogurt maker, steamer and warmer.

It basically does everything I do to food on its very own. No effort needed.

The reviews for Instant Pot IP-DUO60 (the model that I ended up getting, and loving) are unreal. I lightly mentioned the machine to our community and you were all very vocal about your love for the coveted Instant Pot. From cooking pork chops in 20 minutes, rice in a couple of minutes, steamed vegetables in seconds, making dairy-free yogurt, warming leftovers and sauteing meals from start to finish. Most of all, you were all very pleased with how much safer it was then a slow cooker.

The thing about my slow cooker: I don’t trust it. I have a hard time leaving it on while we’re sleeping or away from the house. It makes me uneasy. With my Instant Pot, I don’t have to worry about this because meals are ready so quickly. Instead of a meal taking upwards of 8 hours in the slow cooker, an Instant Pot meal is ready in an hour.

Your love for the Instant Pot encouraged me to reach out to the company to see if they would put together something for you. You know, because maybe you’ve wanted one but were waiting for a sign to make it a done deal? This is that sign. Heck, even if you weren’t waiting for a sign; if you had no idea what an Instant Pot was until you read my post today, it’s worth looking into and seeing if it’s something you’d benefit from.

After weeks of playing with the machine; seeing what all it could do, I figured I’d start off with the simplest of the simple. Bone broth.

Two Ways To Make Bone Broth

Instead of re-inventing the wheel, I’m going to send you to a woman who knows her bone broth better than most: Michelle from Nom Nom Paleo. I met Michelle at Expo West last week, she’s a real gem. Everything I know about bone broth, I’ve learned from her.

For Upgraded Bone Broth…

  • Want more collagen? Use beef knuckles or chicken feet.
  • For low carb, I like to use fresh herbs, celery, ginger and turmeric.
  • Use grass-fed/finished beef bones. I get mine from TK Ranch in Alberta.
  • Once complete, blend a cup of broth with 1 tablespoon MCT oil.
  • Portion out 1-2 cup servings in containers and freeze.
  • Drink in the morning as a replacement for your rocket fuel lattes.


Did you know MCT oil also comes in powdered form? Ya! In its powdered state, it's much easier to use, travel with, and incorporate into your favorite recipes. Plus, if you've experienced digestive issues with MCT oil before, MCT oil powder is a lot gentler on the gut. Check out my favorite brand of MCT oil powder here.

Are you interested in making bone broth? What other sorts of things have you; or would you, make with your Instant Pot?

  1. What about bone broth collagen powder or bone broth protein powder?

    • Instead of drinking bone broth? Sure, you could do that, but it depends on why you’re wanting bone broth in the first place. If you just want bone broth for the collagen, you could totally just use a collagen powder instead. If you want bone broth for the electrolytes, warmth, and feel good vibes, you’ll want to make your own or purchase some from the store (Kettle & Fire is my go-to storebought bone broth).

  2. How do I start?I don’t make enough money to buy a lot of extras.i have your book.if you could help me. I have made a couple of your recipes.i loved them.

  3. I have your recent book and I’m making the bone broth recipe in the Instant Pot. In the book it says to pressure cook for 4 hrs, but above it notes 1 hour (same as other recipes). Is the 4 hrs a misprint? The Instant Pot won’t cook for more than 2hrs at high pressure.
    Just made another batch mayo using your recipe as well. We love it!

    • Sorry for the confusion! When I make mine, I set it for two hours twice. You can really get the gelatin and collagen out by doing that. If you’re short on time, go for just two!

  4. Just ordered the 6qt LUX! So excited to have this coupon :)

  5. I just ordered the 6 qt, and the discount code still works! Like you, I am nervous about running the slow-cooker unattended. Time seems to be something I am always needing a little more of, so I am looking forward to giving this a try! Thanks Leanne!
