  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 cups beef, turkey or chicken drippings and/or stock see notes
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp worcestershire
  • ½ tsp red wine vinegar
  • sea salt see notes

To thicken


Equipment needed

  • Small saucepan
  • Whisk


  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Pour in 2 cups meat drippings/stock and the onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, worcestershire and red wine vinegar. Stir to combine and bring the Keto Gravy to a boil. Reduce to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • At this point, the gravy may have reduced to be thick enough, depending on how you like your gravy. If it is a good thickness, simply taste and adjust the salt to your preference, then serve hot. Otherwise, continue on to thicken it further.

To thicken

  • Combine the xanthan gum and olive oil in a small bowl and stir to combine. Slowly pour the mixture into the Keto Gravy while whisking constantly, then simmer for another minute until thick. Taste, adjust the salt to your preference, then serve hot.


Expert Tips

  1. To maximize flavour, I recommend using drippings from whatever meat you are cooking as the base for this gravy. Top up to the 2 cups liquid with either stock or water. If you do not have any meat drippings, you can use 2 cups beef or turkey stock.
  2. The amount of salt needed will completely depend on how salty your meat drippings and stock are. You may need to add no salt, but you may need quite a bit. Wait until just before serving the gravy to taste and adjust the salt.
