Keto Chicken Fried Steak with Sausage Gravy

This week we bring you a ketofied low carb version of Chicken Fried Steak with Sausage Gravy.  This is absolutely delicious.   As we prepared this dish we realized just how tasty and rich it was especially combined with the Sausage Gravy, depending on your serving size this could be used as a “OMAD – One Meal A Day Option.”   We also realized the importance of getting quality ingredients for example, all pork rinds are not created equal, some are full of fillers, sugar and MSG stay away from those.  You also need to watch for hidden carbs in sausage, and even in heavy cream unfortunately it’s just something you have to always be watchful for while practicing the keto lifestyle.  This is really two recipes in one.  Want more Keto breakfast ideas checkout the following:

Country Sausage Gravy

  • 1 lb Pork Sausage looks for the lowest carb that you can
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 tsp Xanthum Gum
  • 1 tbsp sage
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes Optional
  • 1 cup chicken broth


  • Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat and until full cooked.  Break into small chunks if needed using a spoon or spatula.
  • Cook but do not drain off all of the excess fat. You will need some for your Chicken Fried steak.
    Add 1 cup of chicken broth
    Over medium low head, sprinkle xanthum gum evenly over your sausage and stir in, mixing well.
  • Bring this mixture to a simmer, stir frequently. The mixture will thicken to begin forming our gravy.
    Stir in heavy cream, and let simmer, continuing to stir frequently. Turn heat to low until the gravy has thickened to the desired consistency.
    Add salt and pepper, and other seasonings to taste.
    Remove from head and serve.
