We particularly like this Keto Mushrooms Gravy because it can be used in so many different ways. I often pour it over chicken or pork chops to give them a ton more flavor without the extra carbs.

You can also use this gravy over any type of noodles (try zucchini noodles), or poured over vegetables to give more richness and flavor.

Ingredients You Need

chicken and mushroom gravy ingredients
  • Butter- I always use salted butter in savory dishes to add an extra boost of flavor.
  • Onion – I tend to go light on the onions because they have a higher carb count. You can use as much as you like, or add some green onions instead that have less carbs.
  • Garlic – Always use fresh garlic that hasn’t been kept in the refrigerator for too long. This has the best flavor and no bitterness that comes from older garlic.
  • Sliced mushrooms – You can use button or white mushrooms in this recipe, or get creative with another type of mushroom that you like.
  • Thyme – Whether you use dried or fresh, this will add a lot of flavor.
  • Salt and ground black pepper – This is what really brings the flavor out in this dish, so be sure to add the salt and pepper. You might also taste the dish once it’s done cooking and add more to suit your taste.
  • Dry white wine – The white wine adds a really nice flavor profile, but you can skip it and replace it with more heavy whipping cream if you want.
  • Heavy cream This will give a nice creamy texture and a bit of added fat. If you want, you can use half and half instead.
  • Worcestershire sauce – This add such a punch of umami flavor.

How To Make Keto Mushroom Gravy

Start by heating the butter in a skillet over medium heat. When the butter is melted, add the onion and sauté until softened, about 3 minutes.

Add the mushrooms, thyme, salt and pepper, and sauté until mushrooms are reduced and slightly browned, about 8 minutes. The more you allow the mushrooms to cook, the more flavor will develop so don’t stop too soon. Then add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

Add the white wine to the skillet and deglaze the pan to remove any browned bits. Allow the wine to cook off partially, about 3 minutes. If you don’t want to use wine, you can use vegetable or chicken stock instead or just add more heavy whipping cream.

Add the whipping cream and Worcestershire sauce and let it lightly bubble for a few minutes to thicken up. The gravy will thicken as is simmers, so if it’s too thin for you, just continue to cook it slowly over low heat until it’s as thick as you like.
