This Instant Pot gravy is so smooth and delicious, with such a clean pure flavor of homemade goodness that complements the turkey so perfectly (and for a killer recipe for Thanksgiving turkey check out my paper bag turkey recipe – that’s the one I make every Thanksgiving)!

Homemade Gravy

Making your own gravy from scratch in the Instant Pot is super easy.  I just took my old staple recipe of make-ahead gravy and converted it to the Instant Pot!  Yes, “make-ahead” in my gravy recipe name means that it can be made ahead and reheated! No more scrambling to make turkey gravy in front of the hungry guests.  Make your life easy by making gravy ahead!

Make Ahead Gravy

This gravy recipe is so easy and straightforward, even an absolute beginner can make it. And it tastes dramatically better than the gravy from the can or from those gravy packets that come with frozen turkey breast.  At this point, I won’t even put the store-bought gravy in my mouth 🙂

If you looked at the ingredient list of the store-bought canned gravy, it’s truly scary with all those unpronounceable chemicals and stabilizers.  Homemade gravy has just 4 ingredients: chicken or turkey stock (or drippings), butter, flour and salt.  Clean simple ingredients resulting in clean homemade down-to-earth taste that just hits the spot!

    Need much, much more gravy for a crowd. Would I merely adjust the ingredients proportionally to the amount of stock I use?
