I have a family of onion-lovers so I always double the recipe, this gravy has tons of flavor, if you love onions then then you will love this! If you want a dark richer gravy then omit the water and use 1 cup consomme. This is delicious served with a pork roast and mashed taters or over fries, do not add in any extra salt until end of cooking :)

  2. Add in the flour and cook/whisk stirring for about 1 minute.
  3. Add/stir in water, beef broth, consomme Worcestershire sauce and black pepper; simmer stirring and scraping up the browned bits, until the gravy is slightly thickened (about 8-10 minutes).
  4. Season with more black pepper and add in salt if desired.
  5. Adjust the Worcestershire sauce to taste.

This is so full of flavor!! It is really very good and easy to make Kittencal. I used 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce. I think I will use just 1 tablespoon the next time. Other then that I would not change a thing. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders 2007 game

Great recipe! The gravy turned out wonderful. I personally thought it was a little sweet, so I will probably omit the sugar next time, but my husband loved it! Great recipe!

Excellent gravy. I used it over hamburg steaks and mashed garlic potatoes. Used just one clove garlic and the worcestershire sauce really added a nice flavor. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe, Kit.
