Helpful Tips For Success On Keto Gravy 


Make sure to use a whisk for mixing the gravy together. This is going to help ensure you remove any clumps that develop. A fork can work but I find the whisk is more efficient. 

Thickening Gravy 

As you are cooking the gravy it will thicken. So make sure to give it time when you go to cooking your gravy. Otherwise, you will find if you remove from heat too quickly it won't thicken properly. 

Drain Off Excess Grease 

Make sure that if you have a lot of grease from cooking the pork remove excess grease in the pan. A little is okay as it can flavor the gravy a bit. But too much grease you will find can cause the gravy to separate a bit.

Keto Pork Gravy Variations 

Ground Beef 

Instead of pork you could use ground beef. Either protein works great and will help add flavor to the gravy. The pork stands out more in flavor. 


So for seasoning I used garlic, onion and salt and pepper. You are more than welcome to use your favorite seasonings if you want.

How to store leftover sausage gravy? 

You can store any leftover sausage gravy for 2-3 days in the fridge. The gravy will thicken as it cools down. So when you reheat the gravy it will thin up a bit again. 

Does this recipe double well? 

You are more than welcome to reach for a larger pan and double the recipe if you would like. You will find due to the dairy the dish doesn't freeze well. So only make what you plan to eat right away.
