Bone Broth (Crock Pot Express)

This is a fabulously herby tasting broth that is great as a base for soup, or just to fill up a mug and enjoy. This recipe was adapted from Ali Miller’s Gut Restoring Chicken Bone Broth recipe from her book, The Anti-Anxiety Diet.

  • Crock Pot Express


  • 1 chicken carcass or beef bones
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper or to taste
  • 1 yellow onion with skin quartered, then chopped in half
  • 1 red onion with skin quartered, then chopped in half
  • 3 carrots chopped into 2-3 inch pieces
  • 1 bunch celery leaves on, chopped
  • 1 bunch fresh rosemary chopped
  • 6-7 cloves garlic skinned and smashed
  • 2-3 quarts water


  • Put all ingredients into the liner of the cooker. Cover all ingredients with water to the top fill line
  • Cover the cooker with the lid and lock. Set the steam release valve to closed.
  • Choose the Meat button, and set the time for 60 minutes. Press the Start/Stop button.
  • Once you hear the beep signaling the cooking time is done, allow the machine to fully release pressure.
  • When all pressure is released, open the lid and strain the solids from the broth through a mesh strainer, or through cheesecloth in a colander.
  • Store in jars for 3-4 days in the refrigerator, or in the freezer for up to 1 year.


You could definitely cook this in a regular crock pot if you would like to. To make in the crockpot, fill the slow cooker with all of your ingredients and water. Turn your crockpot on high for about 2 hours, then low for 12 (or overnight). Strain and store as in step 6.
