I love to drizzle gravy onto my favorite meats! This method will show you how to make keto-friendly gravy.

This brown gravy will pair wonderfully with Keto Low Carb Meatloaf, Instant Pot Chicken Breast, and Air Fryer Whole Chicken.

How to Make Keto Gravy

  1. Heat a skillet on medium-high heat and add the butter and garlic powder. Wisk until melted.
  2. Add in beef stock and xantham gum. Wisk continually until the powdered texture disappears, and the sauce thickens.

How to Thicken Gravy

Typically cornstarch is used to thicken gravy and sauces, but it isn’t keto-friendly at all. I like to use xanthan gum and sometimes almond flour. Almond flour does not work well for brown gravy in my opinion.

How Long Will Homemade Gravy Last?

Homemade gravy will last up to 2 days in the fridge. If you wish to continue use, boil it again in a pot on the stove. You can read more about The Best Ways to Store Leftover Gravy here.

Can You Freeze Homemade Gravy?

Yes, the gravy should last up to a few months in the freezer. Reheat the gravy by boiling it and then simmering. You may need to add water or beef broth to thin it out some.

How to Make White Keto Country Gravy

For country gravy that you can smother on Keto Low Carb Biscuits and Keto Chicken Fried Steak, you will substitute the beef stock for 1 cup of heavy cream.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Combine 2 tablespoons of butter, 2 cups of beef stock, and 1 teaspoon of onion powder in a skillet on medium-high heat.
  • Whisk to combine.
  • Add 1 teaspoon Xanthan gum to a small bowl with 2 tablespoons of the gravy mixture from the skillet. Whisk the bowl to combine. The mixture will look like gelatin. Add the mixture back to the skillet and adjust the heat to low.
  • Whisk continually (be patient) to remove any clumps. 
  • After about 10 minutes the gravy should thicken. As the gravy thickens adjust to taste with salt and pepper.

Notes

Yields about 2 cups of gravy, serving size is about 2 tablespoons.
Typically when I make homemade gravy, I create a roux by combining fat (typically butter) with a starch like cornstarch or flour, after those are combined, I add the remaining ingredients. You can do that same method here using the xanthan gum, however, I have found that adding it later in the process yields similar results. You simply have to be patient during the whisking process.
Homemade gravy typically lasts about 2 days in the fridge. If you want to use it for longer than that, you can add it to a pot again and bring it to a boil.

This recipe sounds excellent! For me, sauces are crucial to keeping to a low carb diet because they add so much flavor to the foods I eat. I can't wait to make this! Do you know if it can be frozen?
