Pressure Cooker Bone Broth (Stock) is cloudy with bits of collagen, gelatin, calcium, and fat suspended in the soup. Low Carb and Keto, this broth helps to curb the keto flu!
Save your leftover bones, people! Pressure Cooker Bone Broth (Stock) is so healthy and simple to make in the Instant Pot, Ninja Foodi or Pressure Cooker.
A good Bone Broth Stock/Broth should be a little cloudy. Bits of calcium, fat and gelatin are suspended in the soup. Don’t fear the fat! So much flavor lives there. For those following a ketogenic or low carb diet, my Pressure Cooker Bone Broth is an absolutely necessity. The extra nutrients will help to prevent the “keto flu.”
As pressure cookers easily make clear stock, cloudy can be a bit tricky. Because the Instant Pot Smart WiFi can be programmed to be under and off pressure to create a boiling motion, the Instant Pot DUO 6 Quart can and will make a great cloudy bone broth.
I use the IP Smart’s script to make my bone broth. That being said, I prefer using my Instant Pot DUO Plus or Ninja Foodi or a stand alone Pressure Cooker over the Smart version.
With this recipe the Instant Pot DUO Plus or Ninja Foodi will also cook the bones until they crumble into rubble. I like the Pressure Cooker Bone Broth (Stock) to be rich and dense with flavor. So I save up bones from various recipes like my Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Wings, Air Fryer Chinese Salt and Pepper Pork Chops, Pressure Cooker Red Wine Braised Short Ribs and more and then freeze.
Once I have about three pounds worth, it’s time to make Pressure Cooker Bone Broth. If you start with raw chicken, roast your bones in the oven first. My husband loves my Air Fryer Rotisserie Chicken recipe, so we always have roasted chicken carcasses saved in the freezer.
Sometimes I make an all chicken bone broth and others, I mix up the types of bones. This Pressure Cooker Bone Broth (Stock) can be used in most places instead of water.
The key is to cook the bones until they are crumbly, so if you are using an Instant Pot DUO Plus, Ninja Foodi or Pressure Cooker, just set the pressure to high for two to four hours and find your sweet spot.

Why Use Apple Cider Vinegar?
- Apple Cider Vinegar has so many health benefits.
- For Bone Broth, it helps to draw out the calcium and other minerals in the bones.
To make things easier I recommend the Salbree Steamer Basket. Just pop off the handles popped off. The OXO Good Grips Silicone Steamer is also nice, because you can put your ingredients into the basket inside the cooking pot, without any modification and just remove the basket when cooking is complete.
We also make Chicken Feet Broth for our Tonkinese cats, to pour over their raw food.
I like to put the whole pot in the refrigerator overnight and then remove the layer of fat.
Under the fat is rich, gelatinous bone broth.
It’s easy to store the broth in your freezer with these 16 oz Reditainer Extreme Freezer Containers.
Just slap on a Freezer Label and pop them in your freezer for future use and never buy canned or boxed stock or broth again.
