Top Review by M. Joan

I cooked a Pork Butt roast in the crockpot, so just dipped out the drippings I needed to make gravy. I used a bit more than a 1/4 cup, added to a pan and then added the flour per instructions. I used 1 and 1/2 cups of chicken broth. This gravy recipe is so-oooo DELICIOUS.... I'll be using again and again. Thanks so much for posting. M.Joan
