Who needs store bought gravy when you can make this quick and simple gravy with the end result being a delicious creamy gravy! Made as written and I also used 2 teaspoons of Better Than Bouillon Beef Base added to 2 cups of water and at the end added 1/2 teaspoon Gravy Master instead of the Kitchen Bouquet. Start to finish my gravy was thick and bubbly in less than 15 minutes. Thanks for posting this keeper, it will be made often. Made for the "Down on the Farm" Photo Tag 2012.
Perfect! I made without the Kitchen Bouquet and added 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder and it was the best beef gravy I've ever had.
Made this recipe today with several substitutions of convenience. I used 2 tbsp corn starch instead of flour, earth balance buttery spread instead of butter, as two other reviewers did I also used bouillon instead of beef broth and Gravy Master instead of Kitchen Bouquet (may have overdone it on the Gravy Master). Since I was only cooking for myself the amount in the recipe was far more than I needed, I used some of it to flavor some ground beef I was making before the thickening stage. It was great for everything! Probably would have been thicker if using flour but it worked for my purposes. Will definitely make it again.
On 5/30/12 I was making Real Homemade Mashed Potatoes and wanted to make gravy,so remembering Papa D's wonderful photos of this recipe, I decided to try it. And I'm so very glad I did. :) I didn't have beef broth, so two beef bouillon cubes were dissolved in two cups of boiling water was used.And as Papa D, Gravy Master was used instead of Kitchen Bouquet. If you try this recipe and use bouillon cubes, I would suggest you taste the gravy before adding the salt( I learned the hard way :) ). Thank you for posting a recipe that will certainly be made again. " Keep Smiling :) "
I followed this recipe last night when I made liver and onions, adding the cooked onions into the gravy. My adult son raved about how good the gravy was and stated "this is the kind of gravy I would like on french fries", not knowing about your introduction!! Thank you so much!!
Excellent. I followed the recipe exactly. I even found some Kitchen Gourmet at our local Loblaws. It made a perfect Poutine. Next time I'll add a pinch of Mrs Dash to give it bit more spice.
Super easy and it came out great, i didnt have kitchen bouquet so i used dales steak seasoning. I was making gravy for sirlion hamburger steak so it ended up turning out awesome!
Excellent! I had some left over roast beef and was craving a hot beef sandwich. I made some oven fries, and poured this delicious gravy over the roast beef sandwich and fries and could not stop eating it! Is it okay to have a hot beef sandwich once every 10 years??? I hope so, but I don't care, and now it's nap time...
This is the BEST beef gravy I've ever made...or tasted! OMG DELICIOUS! I didn't have the Kitchen Bouquet and I didn't substitute anything but it still was the BDG!
This is very good. I used it in Wet Burritos and it was perfect.
