How to Make Paleo Bone Broth in One Pot
- 2 kgs of roasted bones from beef, goat or chicken
- 1 medium sized onion, chopped
- 2 tomatoes, chopped
- 1 carrot, chopped
- 6 garlic pearls, chopped
- 1 inch piece of ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
- Handful of cilantro
- Salt to taste
- 1 tablespoon of vinegar
- Prep your bones by thoroughly washing them and then roasting them over a medium flame. I buy my bones roasted, so I just skip this step.
- Pour enough water to cover the bones.
- Now in your slow cooker, dump in your bones and the rest of the ingredients a give it a quick mix.
- Turn on the switch and let it cook for 6 – 24 hours. The longer, the better as they say.
- Once done, allow to cool a bit and then strain to get a clear smooth stock.
- Drink right away and store the excess in the fridge or freezer for later use.
If you don’t have a crockpot, or don’t have time (like me), go ahead and use my pressure cooker bone broth recipe. It gives the SAME results:

You can replace the vinegar with the same quantity of lemon juice. The reason we are using this acidic ingredient is not for flavor but to leach as much as the nutrients as we can out of the bones.
Make sure you are using grass-fed bones from a preferably young animal.
