Cook Time
  • 1-2 sweet onions
  • 1piece Ginger
  • 1/2 – 1teaspoon coconut oil
  • 2tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1-2tablespoons salt
  • 1 – 1 1/2pounds bones(beef, ox tail, turkey necks, or a combination)
  • 5stars anise
  • 1teaspoon cloves
  • 1teaspoon black peppercorn
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1teaspoon cardamom pods
  • 1teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1teaspoon coriander seeds
  1. Chop 1 or 2 onions in half. Chop 1 piece of ginger in half lengthwise.
  2. Broil onions and ginger in oven until charred – approximately 10 minutes. Be sure to have your fan on especially if you have a sensitive smoke detector.
  3. At the same time, combine all spices in a non-stick pan, cooking on low heat until they are fragrant – 3-4 minutes approximately. Do not over-cook as burnt spices can wreck everything.
  4. Turn Instant Pot on saute and wait for it to heat up (until display reads “hot”). Add some coconut oil and brown your bones. You will brown these bones on all sides (turn as needed).
  5. As you are doing this, boil water in kettle (this makes the process faster, but you’re free to do it all in the Instant Pot in the next step if you wish).
  6. Once your bones are browned, turn the Instant Pot off. Add boiled water, onions and ginger, spices and fish sauce, and salt to taste – probably 1-2 Tablespoons.
  7. Fill remainder of Instant Pot with boiled water to max line.
  8. Turn Instant Pot to “Manual” setting for 75 minutes and use a slow pressure release when finished.
  9. Strain and put into jars. You may want to freeze them and thaw as needed. Enjoy!
