    ElaineAnn's Note:

    If you have trouble making gravy (trust me, it took me years to make a smooth gravy) try this technique. It's worth the time and effort.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      NOTE: Use beef, chicken, or turkey, and broth can be mixed with pan drippings.
    2. 2
      Heat broth.
    3. 3
      In a medium skillet melt butter with peanut oil, add flour, and slowly brown to a dark golden brown (you need to keep an eye on this as it may brown too quickly).
    4. 4
      Slowly add broth, stirring constantly with a whisk.
    5. 5
      Add spices, cook slowly, stirring often, for 20 minutes.
    6. 6
      The cooking time is very important. Flour will have a bitter taste if not completely cooked. This is worth the time.
    7. 7
      If gravy is too thick, it can be thinned with broth to desired consistency.

      Thank you, ElaineAnn, for this recipe! I can tell you it was a lifesaver at Thanksgiving and everyone raved about how good the gravy was. I will be making this again...I think it would be awesome with sausage and biscuits.

      My husband and son really liked this gravy. This is a nice recipe to have when you want gravy and aren't cooking meat. Thanks ElaineAnn. Bullwinkle.
