I don't have the space or convenience for making bone broth. Was wondering if any minerals from bones will leak if I threw some in along with rice while cooking? I'm aware that's it's too short of time to compare it to broth but fatty ribs cooked with rice taste awesome.

You could do this and repeat using the same bones several times, or go with smaller bones (such as chicken wings).

But how about making bone broth quickly: Making bone broth over many hours started to annoy my flat mates, and is quite time consuming. So I switched to using a pressure cooker. Bone broth in 30-60 minutes! And I often do it with a cut of meat so I get the meat and broth (lamb shanks, pork hocks, pork knuckles, ...).

TIP: To save more time, to release the pressure quickly and naturally, move the pressure cooker to the sink and poor cold water on the lid. It will reduce the pressure in a minute rather than 10-15 and without blowing steam all over the place as quick releasing would.

The pressure cooker has made EVERYTHING EASIER! And, since it can also be used as a normal pot, I was able to ditch another large pot to save space since. (No space in London).

you will certainly get more nutrients absorbed into the rice than you will with just water. But rice cooks in what 30 minutes? unlikely to get a lot out of that.

I have some space issues too. I make my bone broth, and then put it into ice cube trays in the freezer. Then you use the amount you need.
