Rich and silky, and perfect for slathering over everything on your dinner plate. Brown gravy is a versatile classic for a reason!
- ¼ cup Roasted Beef Drippings (other meats can be used as well, or butter)
- ¼ cup Flour
- 2 cups Reserved Beef Juices (or substitute beef broth/stock)
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Heat fat in a pan over low heat and sprinkle in flour. Cook for approximately 4 minutes, or until flour begins to turn golden brown. Stir continually to prevent burning.
Starting with a few splashes at a time, slowly add beef juices to the pan, whisking to incorporate before more juice is added. Lumps will form in the gravy if too much liquid is added at once.
Simmer gravy for 2 minutes, or until it reaches your desired consistency. It will thicken as it simmers.
Add salt and pepper to taste,
If desired, additional flavorings can be added with the meat juices. 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire or soy sauce, a sprig of fresh rosemary, thyme, or sage, or a quarter teaspoon of garlic or onion powder are all great additions.
