5 Minute Bone Broth Gravy :: Gluten & Grain Free Options!This my friends is the icing on the cake….well, the gravy on the turkey (or chicken, or meatballs!). There is just something about the gravy that makes the meal feel complete!

5 Minute Bone Broth Gravy :: Gluten & Grain Free Options!It doesn’t have to be rocket science either. Making gravy for meatball night on a busy weekday, or that big Thanksgiving day turkey won’t take you more than 5 minutes.

5 Minute Bone Broth Gravy :: Gluten & Grain Free Options!I like to make my gravy while my roasted chicken or turkey is resting right out of the oven. You can use bone broth from the freezer or the meat stock from the pan. The beauty of this recipe is that even if you wanting to make it for meatballs and gravy night, you don’t need pan drippings. Any jar of bone broth in your freezer can become a sauce pan of gravy! And bonus! The gravy freezes very well so anything leftover won’t go to waste!

Servings 8 servings


  • 2 TB butter
  • 2-3 TB white rice flour OR if you are grain free use tapioca flour the amount is dependent on how thick you like your gravy - you can start out low and always add more in the end if you want it thicker. If the gravy turns out thicker than you want you can always thin it out with more broth or even water
  • 1 pint bone broth OR juices from the pan Called meat stock. You can use a combo of both if you wish.
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • Sea salt/pepper to taste I don't season my bone broth so I pretty heavily season the salt here


  • Melt the butter in a sauce pan, add the flour, and stir with a whisk to combine.
  • Add the bone broth and thyme and bring to a simmer stirring with your whisk occasionally until it thickens.
  • Season salt and pepper to taste and serve. This will refrigerate and reheat stovetop well (up to 4 days in advance), or you can freeze it for months.

  1. Your ‘About Me” page got me. Well, and this gravy recipe too. But mostly your “About Me” page. I too, hope and pray that my children will grow up to be innovators and life-changers of the world…not to succumb to the status-quo and follow what the world teaches about nutrition or anything else for that matter. I want them to live to the best potential that they are designed to live up to. Blessings, Renee. I follow you on Instagram and always look forward to what you will be posting. I have a child who will turn a teen this week…teaching him the true value of nutrition is so important to me. Thankfully, I {think} he gets it…for the most part. The rest is grace. πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Anya! Thank you for your kind words! I think he is probably soaking in more than you think πŸ™‚ At least that is what I am hopeful for in my kids when I don’t know if they are listening! Thank you for commenting and following! It is a blessing to me as well!

  2. Ahh, I love homemade gravy – and it’s so easy to make! I think it has the best flavor when you use pan drippings, but it’s still really good with homemade broth + butter and seasonings. πŸ™‚

  3. Would coconut oil or olive/avocado oil work in place of the butter? I know butter probably tastes fabulous, but wondering if it can be subbed.

    1. Hi Tara! I have not tried either but coconut oil will definitely change the flavor. If I couldn’t have butter I would use ghee – which takes the milk solids out, or just leave it out completely – which I have done before and it is still very good πŸ™‚ I hope that helps!

  4. Yes, I’m curious too! I tried earth balance butter last year, and it did not work…. But my dad was saying he uses oils for other gravies and it works great.

    1. Hi Lauren! I would use ghee if you can’t have butter. Earth Balance is soy derived and is not a real food so I would imagine it doesn’t work very well! I would consider the ghee if you can’t have milk, or just simply leave out the butter which I have done before and it is still very delicious πŸ™‚ I hope that helps!

  5. Thank you for the quick and delicious recipe! I was always intimidated by gravy and only ever make it on thanksgiving. Not anymore! My son said it was the best mashed potatoes and gravy he’s ever eaten. Thank you for making me look like a rock star at the dinner table tonight!

    Hello Renee
    I am following a Keto way of eating, would Almond or Coconut flour work the same as the White Rice/Tapioca flour?
    It looks amazing by the way.

    1. Hi Karen! I have tried grain free flours for broth and only tapioca and cassava work well – which will probably be to starchy if you are following Keto. The almond flour and coconut just don’t thicken it – it will be grainy.

  7. I’m making bone broth from scraps of a Costco rotisserie chicken,veg, garlic, s and p. I plan on making gravy from it to put on the chicken over rice. Kind of like Hawaiian haystacks. For years I have made gravy from crockpot roast drippings, water, and corn starch in one of those big pampered chef glass measuring bowls with a handle. I mix and microwave on high for 6-8 min. I stir a couple of times is all. It makes great gravy without babysitting it the whole time. I will do that with this. I hope the grandkids like it. Thanks for the recipe!
