I roasted some beef and used the dripping for this... the taste is very full and rich. The addition of red wine is one thing that I couldn't quite decide if I liked or not.. I tasted it before the wine went in and it was wonderful then too.. maybe next time I try with way less wine and see how it compares. I did cut down the recipe and although I also reduced the salt, it was quite salty, maybe the fault of the commercial consumme that I bought? Next time I will leave the salt out or add it later to taste. I had some scrapings of beef scraps from cutting the meat and shoved them into the gravy too, YUM :) Please see my rating system: 4 stars for a wonderfully rich gravy that I will make again. Thanks!
