Keto Gravy Sauce
This gravy sauce is simple to make and a delicious way to enjoy some comfort food keto-style!
I experimented with a gravy sauce after Thanksgiving just in time to lather over our leftover turkey slices. Delicious enough to eat by the spoonful, but save it for those days when you are craving comfort food!
How To Make Keto Gravy
You make keto gravy very similar to traditional gravy, except we will thicken our sauce by blending the onions and adding a gluten free thickener.
For this recipe we use 1/2 cup of chopped onion, which has 7 carbs. If you are super-duper strict keto, then reduce the onion to 1/4 cup or leave them out.
The flavor from the onions are worth the carbs in my opinion, and you won’t be eating the whole amount in the gravy boat at one serving. At least I don’t recommend that!
Steps To Make Gravy
- Sauté onion in butter until soft and fragrant
- Add broth or stock, then heavy cream
- Mix in cream cheese
- Blend ingredients
- Place ingredients back in skillet
- Season with salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce
- Add thickener (Psyllium Husk – my preference)
- Top with additional butter (optional) and any additional fresh herbs

How To Thicken Keto Gravy
Obviously, the easiest way to thicken traditional gravy is to make a roux with flour, but that’s not the keto way. Don’t fret though because I have a delicious alternative to flour, cornstarch or arrowroot with zero carbs and all the thickness you want.
First, you should know that when you make a gravy it can be thickened naturally by simmering the ingredients to evaporate the water in the stock. It does work, but we tend to get impatient, which is why whisking in flour gives us instant satisfaction since it thickens almost immediately.
Here are some options to thicken the gravy without using flour, cornstarch or arrowroot.
- Full fat Cream Cheese
- Yogurt or Sour Cream
- Guar gum or Xanthan Gum
- Psyllium Husk Powder
I tried them all and ended up with a combination of 1 tablespoon of cream cheese and 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk powder, which I think gave me the best tasting gravy with the thickness I was looking for.
Add your choice after simmering the ingredients. Start with a tablespoon of yogurt or sour cream, and add more a tablespoon at a time to get to the consistency you prefer.
If using guar gum or xanthan gum you will need 1 teaspoon of the guar gum and about 1/2 teaspoon for the xanthan gum. Just like flour, each will thicken quickly, so start with less and increase the amount as it bulks up.
Low Carb Keto Gravy Recipe
Comfort food keto-style! Use this easy low carb gravy sauce for biscuits and gravy, meats, and any dish you want additional flavor.
- 1/2 cup onion, diced
- 3 tablespoons butter, divided
- 2 cups stock or broth (beef, chicken, turkey, vegetable)
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon cream cheese
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon psyllium husk
- Salt and pepper to taste
In a medium skillet over medium heat add two tablespoons of butter and add onion. Sauté until onion is soft and fragrant.
Pour in stock and mix well, then add cream. Stir until all ingredients are warm, then add cream cheese and whisk until cheese melts.
Remove from stove and carefully place in a glass blender. Pulse until in smooth.
Place back in skillet and add 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk. Stir until desired thickness. Mix in Worcestershire sauce and 1 tablespoon of butter. Top with fresh herbs if desired.
1/4 cup of sauce is under 5 carbs
