  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca flour
  • 2 cups chicken stock beef stock, or vegetable stock (broth works also)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat a medium size sauce pan over medium heat.
  • Melt the butter. Once the butter is completely melted, add in the tapioca flour and whisk vigorously until combined and there are no lumps. Cook for 30 seconds.
    2 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons tapioca flour
  • While whisking constantly, slowly pour in the stock. Cook for 1-2 minutes until thickened, whisking every few seconds.
    2 cups chicken stock
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve warm on top of meat and vegetables.
  • Leftovers will keep in an airtight container for at least 5 days, or frozen for at least 6 months.



Make-Ahead: Make this keto gravy recipe up to 5 days in advance, and store in an airtight container. I love a mason jar. Reheat on the stovetop over medium-low heat until simmering.
Freezing: You can freeze for at least 6 months in the freezer. I love wide-mouth mason jars for this. Or freeze in ice cube trays so you can thaw smaller amounts as needed.
Thickness: I like my keto gravy to be a similar thickness consistency as tomato soup. Feel free to add less stock to make it thicker, or more stock to make it thinner to suit your personal preference!
Lactose/Dairy Free: If you need this to be lactose-free, use ghee in place of butter. If you need this to be completely dairy-free/vegan, use vegan butter or triple filtered coconut oil. Same quantities for all substitutions.
Thickener: Tapioca is my recommended thickener for this gravy. You can also use arrowroot flour, all-purpose flour, or cornstarch. Same quantity for all substitutions.
