  • 1 lb pork sausage
  • 3 Tbsp butter unsalted
  • ¼ cup All-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  • Set Instant Pot to Sauté and select “More” setting. Once Instant Pot displays “HOT” add your sausage. Stir and brown sausage until it is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  • Add butter and stir until butter is melted. Sprinkle flour over meat and stir. Cook for about one minute while stirring.
  • Add milk, maple syrup, salt and black pepper. Stir, ensuring that there are no brown bits stuck to the bottom.
  • Press cancel on Instant Pot. Select “Pressure Cook" and adjust machine to low pressure and a time of 2 minutes. Cover the Instant Pot with the pressure cooking lid, ensuring that the valve is set to "Seal."
  • Once timer goes off, do a quick release by turning the Valve to “Venting.” Once all the pressure is released, open the lid and stir the gravy.
  • The gravy will thicken upon stirring. If you would like the gravy thicker, select Sauté and put it on the normal setting. Cook, while stirring, until desired thickness is reached.


Notes on Instant Pot Sausage Gravy

  • This recipe was made in a 6 Qt Instant Pot DUO.
  • The Instant Pot Lux does not have a low pressure cooker function. In order to cook without the low pressure function, continue to cook with the sauté function (after browining the meat and adding the other ingredients)
    for about 10-15 minutes or until gravy has thickened to desired consistency.
  • This is great to keep warm in the Instant Pot while having breakfast.
