Among the best parts of slow roasting meat are the delicious drippings. Rich, savory and flavorful liquid gold… To discard it, we’d suggest, borders on criminal.
While there’s nothing wrong with enjoying drippings on their own, most of us grew up enjoying the creamy texture of gravy on meats and vegetables. For some, it’s an indispensable element in a real holiday meal. And there’s no reason to deprive yourself if gravy is your thing. Even if you’re living keto, this recipe keeps your commitment. Most of all, it feels and tastes like indulgence itself.
Time: 10 minutes
- 2 cups turkey drippings, bone broth, or stock
- ½ cup heavy whipping cream
- 4 tablespoons butter or ghee
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 1/2 teaspoon arrowroot powder
Combine cream, butter, broth/drippings in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer for 10–15 minutes. Add arrowroot powder, salt, and pepper. Stir until gravy thickens and reduces down to consistency of your liking.
