Instant Pot Turkey Gravy

I made a turkey breast in my Instant Pot and it turned out so juicy and incredibly flavorful. I used the fresh stock to make a gravy that I could spoon over my meat.

This recipe for Instant Pot gravy was fantastic. Using fresh stock is ideal for the ultimate flavor but you can reach for store bought if needed!

How to Make Turkey Gravy with Cornstarch

I love using cornstarch to help thicken up gravy. This recipe uses flour, but you can replace the flour with cornstarch.

So I make a cornstarch slurry that you stir in at the end, to help really thicken the mixture without harming the flavor of the gravy.

Can You Freeze Turkey Gravy

Since this is a flour based turkey gravy you can freeze it. If this recipe used a lot of dairy like cream or milk it could not be frozen.

You can freeze this gravy for up to 4 months in the freezer when it is frozen properly. Then just allow it to thaw in the fridge overnight before you plan to use it.

How Do You Store Turkey Gravy

Store your leftover gravy in the fridge for up to three days. When you go to reheat it, do it low and slow on the stove. Make sure to whisk to help break up any lumps.

If you find the gravy is too thick, add a little stock or water to thin it out. But if your gravy is too thin, whip up a little more cornstarch and cold water, and whisk it in once your mixture is warm. This will help to thicken your gravy back up.

Can I Change Herbs On Turkey Breast

If you are looking to do other seasonings or herbs go ahead. You can use items you normally use in your cooking to flavor it the way you want. This is just a personal favorite way to whip up turkey breast.

But feel free to use ingredients you enjoy flavor-wise to season up your poultry.

How to Clean Inner Pot

Sprinkle some Bar Keepers Friend in the bottom of the pot, add a touch of water, and give it a scrub with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. This simple combination really does work wonders!

Suggestions to make your Herbed Turkey Gravy:

  • If you prefer, you can replace the flour with cornstarch.
  • Feel free to use any other ingredients you enjoy flavor-wise to season up your poultry.
  • Try adding 1 cup of Red Wine for a unique flavor. Bur if you do so, use ⅓ cup of flour instead of the 3 tablespoons.


  • Can my dog have Turkey Gravy? This recipe is not recommended for your dog. Because gravy is often made with fat drippings from your turkey, it has a high-fat content that can cause gastrointestinal distress and life-threatening inflammation
  • Can my cat have Turkey Gravy? Although this basic turkey gravy won't hurt your cat, giving in small amounts, it is still a fattening food and can cause problems for cats with certain conditions.
