Easy beef gravy. This recipe works with beef that doesn't have too much juice and/or when boiling potatoes for mashing. Or with just a can of beef broth and water. I like this as it works well when making mashed potatoes and beef, when not too many drippings from the main beef course are available.


  1. Add one can of beef broth over medium heat and 1/4 cup cornstarch, mix using wire whisk. Add half stick of butter. Add 1/4 cup water or if available- skim foamy starch water from boiling potatoes with spoon and add about 4 tablespoons of this to pot. Add any meat drippings if available. Stir often. Add pepper. Cook to boil -- then simmer -- low -- salt to taste. using wire strainer- pour gravy into strainer over bowl or gravy boat. Serves 4-6.
