Since I made my roast turkey in the Instant Pot, I was left with the turkey carcass and since there’s no sense in wasting that turkey carcass, I thought I might as well make turkey broth. Here is a quick and painless recipe.

Turkey Broth


1 turkey carcass
1T olive oil
2T butter
1 onion, cut in half
1 carrot in large chunks
1 celery stalk in large chunks
herb bouquet, tie together with kitchen string/twine, a couple of sprigs sage, thyme and Italian parsley (use what you have)


  1. Set the Instant Pot on Sauté and adjust to More. Once it says Hot, add olive oil and butter. Brown the turkey parts on all sides.
  2. Cancel the Sauté mode. Fill the pot with water up to the 10 cup mark. Add the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Close and lock the lid, making sure the sealing knob is on sealing. Start the recipe program.
  4. Once the cooking is done, you can release the pressure by the quick or natural pressure release.
  5. Strain the broth through a sieve into a large bowl and skim the fat. Use the stock in a soup recipe or freeze in small batches for future use.

Pressure cook on high for 1 hour.

By using a whole carcass in one pot will give you a more condensed and flavourful broth. You can always do two batches as I did with mine in the video. If you have an already cooked carcass, skip step 1 in the instructions.

  • Hi Flo, I can’t wait to try your bbq rib and pot roast recipes when my instant pot arrives. I was searching “instant pot recipes” and came across your quick and simple recipe videos. Thanks! Just wondering if you have a good chinese soup with pork bone and/or a ramen broth recipe. Thanks!
