  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


This Keto Brown Gravy only requires 6 ingredients and can be ready in under 5 minutes. Pour over cauliflower mash or turkey. Only 1 NET CARB. Whole30, Keto, Paleo and Gluten Free. 



  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 2 tablespoons ghee 
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum*
  • salt and pepper to taste



  1. Add the beef stock, ghee, onion powder and garlic powder to a medium saucepan and place over high heat. Bring to a simmer and sprinkle over the xanthan gum, whisk well.
  2. Continue to simmer until the gravy is a medium brown color and coats the back of a spoon. Add salt and pepper to taste.(This will take maybe 4-5 minutes)
  3. Serve immediately over turkey or cauliflower mash. 


  • Feel free to substitute chicken or vegetable broth for the beef. I love the taste of beef broth and I also love the dark color it gives the gravy.
  • You can substitute tapioca or arrowroot for the xanthan gum. Use 1 1/2 tablespoon dissolved in 2 tablespoons water in place of xanthan gum. Both tapioca and arrowroot do have more carbs than xanthan gum, so keep that in mind. 
  • Add leftovers to an air tight container and place in the fridge for up to one week.
