Instant Pot Turkey Bone Broth (Whole30/Paleo/Gluten Free/Dairy Free)


As a veteran “Whole-30er,” bone broth is one of those things I just didn’t quite understand. It was way too expensive to buy for our tight budget, and seemed like too much work to make otherwise. Despite three separate rounds of Whole30 (one while pregnant!) I never managed to try making bone broth. Well, fast forward to getting myself familiar with my Instant Pot {link! Older models like mine run about $80 now} and I decided it was time to give it a go. WOW do I regret not doing this before. It’s an inexpensive way to get broth, and is SO easy! I searched for a recipe that seemed the easiest and there wasn’t much info on turkey bone broth, let alone anything on Instant Pot Turkey Bone Broth. So I decided to make up my own and it turned out fantastic!

Feel free to change up the vegetables I mention. I used these because they were in my pantry and historically pair well with turkey. The result is my after-Christmas Instant Pot Turkey Bone Broth. Oh, and want to know the best part? You can easily make TWO batches! See the notes at the bottom of the recipe. Make the most of your meal by making instant pot turkey bone broth!

  1. Break apart bones as needed to fill instant pot as tightly as possible. You want the pot to be about half-full of bones. My turkey carcass was from a 12lb turkey and was done in a 6qt Instant Pot.
  2. Add in the onion, carrots, and spices.
  3. Add in water until to the 2/3 full line. The exact amount of water will depend on how many bones there are. Just make sure it's filled to the line. Don't overfill or you risk teh Instant Pot sputtering the broth out during the pressure cycle.
  4. Set Instant Pot to Manual High Pressure for 35minutes
  5. Once the cycle is done, quick release the Instant Pot
  6. Strain out the bones, veggies, and carcass using a fine mesh strainer. See notes for storage ideas. All done!
  7. Optional: to make a second batch, simply follow the same instructions as above except set the pressure cycle time to 1 hr instead of 35mins. Rumor has it you might even be able to get a third batch, but I don't want to make any promises.
Recipe Notes

The same recipe would work for other types of poultry such as duck or chicken. Spices such as sage or marjoram could add in an interesting flavor too. Please let me know if you try any other meats/spices/veggies using this method! This broth can be used to substitute any regular "broth" in dishes or soups and also tastes fantastic by itself. It's perfect for your January Whole30 and warming up in those cold winter months 🙂

Store in large mason jars like {these}, or portion out in a silicone muffin tin {link!}.

  • I really enjoy consuming bone broth every morning! It’s reduced my osteoarthritis and pain a good amount.

    Additionally, I used to be sensitive to particular kinds of food.

    I think that the bone broth has absolutely improved my digestion in this area.
    What do you think about mixing bone broth with a resveratrol pill for
    even more health benefits? I might try it out.

    • That’s awesome to hear, it seems to help a lot of people. I do not personally take additional supplements, and would recommend asking a doctor before doing this. -Rachel
