Bring on the gravy train! Just because you follow a healthy paleo lifestyle doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy gravy once in a while every day. This gravy recipe is perfect for a Thanksgiving or Christmas menu, because it can be made with the drippings from a turkey or any roasted meat of your choosing.And it's easy to make! Just make sure that shallots and fresh tarragon are on your pre-event grocery list and you're all set. Most of us paleo-ites (paleoans?) have extra bone broth or chicken stock and tapioca starch in the pantry. Making this gravy a paleo holiday meal staple is a no brainer.
Shallots and tarragon pair nicely with a savory poultry or pork meal. They are in this recipe to make the flavor a bit more elegant and fancy. You can always omit them if you just want to make a regular, old-fashioned (but none-the-less decadent) gravy.
The most delicious thing about this paleo gravy is that it tastes just like gravy made with wheat flour. The drippings from the meat and grass fed butter thicken this gravy up with fat-laden flavor. It's everything you want in a rich, buttery gravy - only healthier because it contains no grains.
