  • Add all the ingredients into the pan over moderate heat. Cook stirring until the gravy thickens. Remove from heat once the gravy has thickened. Season to taste and serve.
  • Alternative cooking method. If you have prepared a roast, use the pan and drippings for extra flavour. Simply remove the roast from the pan and place the pan over moderate heat. Add all the ingredients to the pan and cook stirring until thickened. Make sure you use a spatula to scrape all the good stuff off the bottom of the pan into the gravy.


  • Place all the ingredients into mixer; mix 20 sec/speed 4.
  • Cook 6 min/120°C/speed 2/cap off. Extend cooking time if required. Season to taste and serve.


Always use xanthan gum sparingly as it can leave a slimy mouth feel. If the gravy is slimy simply add more broth.
Glucomannan powder is great to use as a thickener but is not yet readily available in our local grocery stores.
For a vegetarian and keto vegan version omit the collagen and use a vegetable broth.
Best cooked and served as needed. Serve with roast meats and vegetables. It is the perfect keto gravy for biscuits or on a pile of cauliflower mash.To reheat, cook in a small pan over low heat whisking until warmed through.
I have given both cooktop and Thermomix cooking methods for the carb free gravy. You could indeed make this in the Instant Pot, Ninja, Crockpot or slow cooker. It won't take much heating, but that is totally up to you.
Store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Freeze and defrost in the fridge as needed.
