Nothing fancy tonight just some good old comfort food that reminds me of my childhood. My keto spin on hamburger gravy and mashed potatoes. The gravy is thickened with an almond flour roux and cream cheese and the mash is a celery root and orange cauliflower mash. A little cream , cream cheese and butter to make a nice thick mash texture. Salt pepper and garlic for flavor. Keto comfort food for a cold Ohio night. General recipes / general cooking guide for the keto hamburger gravy. Ok here is the recipe paragraph style I never cook small quantities as I have friends and family to share with always haha. You can scale back as needed. First brown 5 lbs of 80 / 20 ground beef with two medium diced onions and salt , pepper and garlic to taste, drain and save roughly 1 1/4 cups of the drippings. With the drippings in the pan add 3/4 to 1 cup of almond flour to form a roux. Once it thickens and browns add 2 1/2 cups each of HWC and beef broth. Bring to a simmer. Add 20 oz. cream cheese to a microwave safe bowl and heat to soften. Once softened ladle some of the liquid in with the cream cheese. Optionally in this step you can add 2 tsp of Minors beef broth concentrate. It is not necessary but does riches up the beefiness that’s is cut some by the cream and cream cheese. Microwave again to melt further then hit the mixture with an immersion blender. This helps to really emulsify the cheese so it’s not just tiny cheese dots in the gravy. Pour this back in the main batch and hit it all with the immersion blender. Now add the ground beef and onions in. Simmer for 15 minutes or so to reduce some to a nice thickness. Note it will thicken a bit as it cools. It’s a little bit of a process but turns out a gravy that rivals non keto. It’s friends and family approved. That’s it , try it and let me know what you think. Sub sausage and you will have some fine sausage gravy for some keto biscuits.
