Making Beef Bone Broth in the Instant Pot

Homemade Beef Bone Broth is a tasty gelatin-rich liquid that promotes good gut health. Bone broth heals our guts and gives a boost to our digestive health and immune system. And scientists tell us that our gut is, in essence, our second brain and has a significant impact on our overall health.

In my Beef Bone Broth in the Instant Pot recipe video, I show you how to make this nourishing liquid that contains the gelatin to help soothe your digestive system.

Prep: 5 minutes

Total: 2 hours 50 minutes
Yield: 2 Quarts
Instant Pot Beef Bone Broth is a quick and easy way to make bone broth that gels every time.


  • 4 pounds Beef bones a mix of marrow bones, neck bones, and oxtails
  • 1 cup Red wine or fortified wine 1/4 cup vinegar can be substituted
  • 2 Onions chopped
  • 2 Carrots chopped
  • 2 stalks Celery seed chopped
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon Whole black peppercorns


  • Place the marrow bones into the Instant Pot liner pot, add the wine or vinegar, and then cover the bones with water. Allow the bones to soak while proceeding to step 2.
  • Brown the neck bones and oxtails in a 425°F (218°C) oven until brown, approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Once the oxtails and neck bones have been roasted, transfer them to the Instant Pot with the marrow bones.
  • Deglaze the roasting pan with water and add the drippings to the Instant Pot with the bones.
  • Add the vegetables, bay leaf, and peppercorns. Add additional water to cover by no more than an inch and be sure not to fill the Instant Pot beyond the pressure cooker marking.
  • Set the Instant Pot Steam Release Valve to "sealing." Choose the soup/broth option and adjust the pressure to "low pressure." Set the Instant Pot timer for 2 hours.
  • When the 2 hours of pressure cooking have finished, follow the manufacturer's instructions for releasing the pressure or allow the pressure to come down naturally. Once the pressure has been completely released, remove the lid.
  • Strain out the solids and then strain the bone broth. (See video.)
  • The bone broth will stay fresh, refrigerated for 2-3 days, and if frozen, it will stay fresh for 2-3 months.

    Question. Will I be able to taste the red wine. I do not like red wine. I am a super taster, so very sensitive. Thank you.

    1. Mary's Nest says:

      Hi Donna,

      The vermouth or red wine taste should dissipate when your beef bone broth is under pressure and cooking. However, just in case you don’t want any alcohol to be part of your bone broth, you can try another acid, like Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), to acidulate your bones before making bone broth. Just make sure to only use 1/4 cup of ACV, otherwise, the finished bone broth will have a sharp flavor. As another alternative, you can use 2 tablespoons of a citrus juice to acidulate your water.

      I hope this helps and that you have wonderful success with your bone broth.

      Thanks so much for your comment.

      Love and God bless,

    This is the first recipe I have made in my new Instant Pot (I got the 8-quart, large one), and it worked wonderfully. The broth has a lovely gel to it, like a soft jello. I used the two-hour cooking time and other settings as indicated in the recipe. Thanks for the recipe, it will be a staple in my kitchen.

      Wonderful! So happy to hear how well it turned out! Love, Mary
