Turkey Gravy In The Instant Pot

Charlotte Carlile


I've been using a make ahead gravy recipe for a while now, and it took 5 hours and there was baking and boiling and straining and made such a mess. I decided to try making it in my Instant Pot and bypass all the time and mess. I also left out the fresh herbs and garlic and since there is nothing in the turkey drippings except, well, turkey, and maybe a little herb flavoring from the dressing, I decided to season lightly. It turned out very good, really tasty and there will be no mad scramble when the turkey comes out of the oven. Just strain the drippings and add.. Happy Thanksgiving.

How to Make Turkey Gravy In The Instant Pot


  1. Add stock to Instant Pot then add seasonings and stir. Cut the onion in large pieces and place in steamer basket, place wings on top and put the basket in in IP. You may have to adjust the amount of wings you use, but make sure you only use wings.
  2. Cook on high pressure for 30 minutes then let sit for 20 minutes and release remaining pressure. You want the wings to be literally falling off the bone and the broth to be rich. Lift basket out and place on a large plate to drain.
  3. Put the IP on sauté. When it starts to boil add the cornstarch and water.
  4. I did not lose any liquid and even gained a cup. I started with 4 Tablespoons for cornstarch in 1 ½ cups of water and made a slurry. It was not enough, but it did thicken it some. Place in gallon Zip Lock freezer bags and freeze. On Thanksgiving Day, thaw and keep hot in a crock pot, the IP or on the stove.
  5. When the turkey comes out of the oven, add the drippings and more cornstarch slurry to thicken, and the gravy is DONE.
