Instant Pot Lamb Bone Broth

Today I am going to show you how to make the most amazing lamb bone broth in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.

Last week in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker I introduced you to my Instant Pot Turkey Bone Broth, plus we also have our Instant Pot Chicken Bone Broth on the blog.

I am sure you’re seeing a theme going on here.

Well there is in a way. I love saving money on groceries and I was taught by my Grandparents to never waste anything.

My grandad would find amazing old items at the rubbish tip and then do them up so that they looked as good as new. He was also amazing at cooking the most delicious liver and his meals were always frugal.

Nowadays though, we live in a society when making lamb bone broth would be overlooked it many homes.

Lots of people (not everyone) just doesn’t see the health benefits of having lamb bone broth in their diets, or how wonderful it feels to make use out your leftover lamb bones.

My obsession with lamb bone broth goes beyond just making us of the lamb bones or having something ultra-nutritious in my diet.

For me there is another reason why I love making lamb bone broth.

That is for the flavour in cooking.

I love to use bone broths whenever I am cooking especially in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.

This is because often, you lose flavour of food when you pressure cook, so having extra bone broth added to casseroles, stews and such like makes food taste extra special.

Each time I have bones I will make bone broth for later, then I can have lots of freezer portions for whenever I need them.

Right now, as I type this, I have duck fat, beef bone broth, lamb bone broth, chicken bone broth and turkey bone broth, as well as turkey neck soup in my freezer. All using up bones that would normally be thrown away.

I recommend that you make use of any bones you have and don’t waste this delicious nutritious whole food staple.

Lamb Bone Broth

We all talk regularly about making Instant Pot Chicken Bone Broth, but what about lamb? It is a much fattier meat compared to chicken and this makes it perfect for a jelly like, thick bone broth.

Also, because when you buy a quarter of a lamb, you might end up with small amounts of lamb bone with hardly any lamb meat on them, you have to remember that these are JUST PERFECT for making lamb bone broth.

I had a tiny lamb shoulder that would make about 6 chunks of lamb stewing meat (if you’re lucky) as well as the lamb bones from making Sous Vide Leg Of Lamb the day before.

Altogether it is not enough for a meal, but it is perfect for making into Lamb Bone Broth, to then store in the freezer for some future flavourings for cooking with.

Lamb Bone Broth Main Ingredients:

  • Lamb Bones
  • Lamb Meat Scraps
  • Spring Onions
  • Olive Oil
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Seasonings

Though your own ingredients don’t have to be the same. Because making lamb bone broth is all about using up what you have already and making use out of leftovers.

And following the no waste method.

I had celery, spring onion and carrots that needed using up. But if I didn’t, I would have used a white onion instead.

The golden rule is having a mix of root vegetables and onion as well as your leftover lamb bones.

Lamb Bone Broth Benefits

lamb bone broth benefits are HUGE. Both for humans and for your dogs. Many people cook their lamb bones for their dogs or use it to detox and get rid of the common cold.

I love it most for gut health. I have suffered from IBS in the past as well as PCOS and I like to detox regularly to give my gut a boost and make me feel good. Plus compare it to using poor quality lamb stock and its so much better for you.

Plus, as a mum that wants to keep her weight down, lamb bone broth is fantastic for aiding the metabolism and giving it a kick start.

Though if you don’t have your own lamb bones, I would recommend purchasing them from US Wellness Meats as they have a fantastic selection to choose from. We have bought them from there before and they sell a HUGE pack for you to use in your lamb bone broth.

How To Cook Lamb Bone Broth?

Instant Pot Lamb Bone Broth

Lamb Bone Broth is one of the simplest recipes I have ever made in the Instant Pot. It is very much like dump and go pressure cooking. You saute your lamb meat first, as this adds flavour to your pressure cooker.

Then after this you dump everything into your pot and cook for 2 hours. Drain it off when it beeps and you have delicious homemade lamb bone broth!

Or step by step lamb bone broth is THIS simple:

  • Add lamb meat scraps to the Instant Pot and cook on sauté with your extra virgin olive oil
  • Add in the rest of your ingredients including your pressure cooker liquid
  • Cook for 2 hours
  • Sieve and fridge

Can you believe it is that SIMPLE to make lamb bone broth in the Instant Pot?

Lamb Bone Broth Pressure Cooker Method

You’re probably wondering why I use the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker for making my lamb bone broth?

Well the truth is that the lamb bone broth pressure cooker method is much faster, and it makes you feel like your hands free and not stuck in the kitchen.

A typical lamb bone broth would be cooked in a HUGE stockpot for 2 days to get all the goodness off the bones and create a delicious bone broth.

BUT cook lamb bone broth in the Instant Pot and your time has gone from 2 days down to 2 hours. Isn’t that AMAZING?

  • Load up the lamb bones and pour over ½ litre of water that has been mixed with your mixed herbs into the Instant Pot. This will form your flavoured liquid.
  • Set the valve to sealing and cook for 2 hours on manual pressure.
  • Manually release pressure when it beeps and allow it to cool for a few minutes so that its not too hot to handle.
  • Using a sieve (or the sieve and bowl method like we ddrain the broth from the stock.
  • 1Drain a second time with a thinner sieve to get rid of any of the super tiny bones.
  • 1Place into a jug and keep in the fridge overnight.
  • 1The next day, skim the fat from the top of the lamb bone broth and then pour the bone broth into containers.
  • 1Serve as you wish.


Remember lamb is a fatty meat. Because of this I highly recommend you follow our lead and fridge your lamb bone broth for 12 hours, skim the top and then place it into freezer containers.
I had only a small amount of lamb meat scraps to use and even a small 3-4 chunks will enhance the flavour of your lamb bone broth.

  1. About how much weight in bones do you use for this recipe? I’m planning to use 3lbs of bones purchased from Wellness Meats. Wondering if that’s too much for the instant pot to hold with added aromatics. Thanks!

    • Hi Julz,

      We roughly used 1 lb of bones in a 8 quart Instant Pot and it would easily handle 3 lbs of bones 🙂

      If you have any more questions please get in touch many thanks.

        • Hi Dee,

          You can add more water but it will be diluting down the flavour, we found that 1/2 a litre was a good amount because the broth was still very flavourful 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    I haven’t tried it yet, but this recipe, with easy step instructions has inspired me! I’ll report back when I have tried it myself – thanks for giving me confidence! And for keeping it simple which so many web advice sheets fail to do.

    • Hi Kari,

      The roasting of the bones just means browning them first but not cooking them fully until you set the instant pot to cook 🙂
