  • Place the vegetables, garlic, bones, and bay leaves into your pressure cooker. Sprinkle on the salt, drizzle with vinegar, and add enough water to cover everything by 1 inch. Put on the cover and pressurize.
  • Cook on high pressure for 90 minutes to 2 hours for chicken or turkey, and 2 to 3 hours for beef.
  • When the cook time finishes, allow the Instant Pot to naturally release.
  • Pour the broth through a fine strainer and discard the solids. Taste the broth and add more salt if needed.
  • Chill the broth. It will keep for 3 days in the fridge and 3 months in your freezer.
