I found this in our local paper a few weeks ago and found it to be a delicious, quick and easy meal for after work....or, for breakfast.
- 1 tablespoon bacon drippings or 1 tablespoon oil
- 1⁄2 lb ground beef
- 3 tablespoons minced onions
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup milk
- salt and pepper
- baking powder biscuits or cornbread or mashed potatoes or toast
- Heat bacon drippings or oil in a large skillet over medium-hi heat; add ground beef and onion and cook and stir, breaking meat into small crumbs, until meat and onions have browned, about 7 minutes.
- Push meat to side of pan and drain off all but 1 1/2 tablespoons pan drippings; return to low heat and whisk flour into pan drippings until smooth.
- Slowly add milk and stir until smooth.
- Move meat back into center of pan and stir to coat with gravy; cook until thickened, season with salt and pepper to taste and serve over split baking powder biscuits, toast or corn bread or over mashed potatoes.
I was thinking about posting this and saw you already did...it is truly a comfort food and real easy on the pocketbook too. I've been making it for over 40 years. However, I add fresh diced garlic as well as a few drops of Worceshire Sauce. We always have it for a quick supper.
This recipe was made on 7/5/09 for mine and SO's dinner. Since my SO, has Caveman tendencies ( READ: A BIG meat eater :) )about 4 more ounces of meat was added to the recipe. And the amounts of flour and milk were adjusted accordingly. After cooking and placing over Mitch's Buttermilk Biscuits, we both thought that it could use alot more seasoning. If this is made again, I think that maybe some crushed red pepper and seasoned salt will be added to the meat/ onion mixture as it's browning. But thanks for taking time to post this recipe, and " Keep Smiling :) "
This is a delicious gravy for breakfast, served it with hot biscuits. It would also be great for a quick dinner meal. I do suggest doubleing the recipe for 4 people. I made the full recipe for the 2 of us and my DH eat over half of it. Thank you Judy, for posting the recipe I will be making this again & soon.
