Fat-Free Gravy

Home | Recipes | F
Diabetic Low-fat/cal Sauces


  • 1 c Broth & defatted drippings
  • 2 ts All purpose flour
  • 1 ts Cornstarch
  • 1 ts Ketchup
  • 1 pn Salt
  • 1 pn Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pn Basil (beef) or sage (chick)


A waist-watcher gravy - quite thin. Serve over meat or potatoes.
Cook up bones as for soup, strain liquid. Refrigerate overnight or until white fat on top can be removed with a spoon. Refrigerate meat drippings from the pan and skim off the fat.
Combine broth, flour and cornstarch in a screw-top jar, cover and shake until well combined or use a blender for a larger batch. Pour into saucepan, stir in ketchup, salt, pepper and basil for beef (or sage for turkey, or other herb of your choice). Stir-cook over medium heat until gravy thickens. (Mine didn't thicken but I had some lumps of flour or cornstarch.) Makes about 1 cup.
