"Who needs store bought gravy when you can make this quick and simple gravy with the end result being a delicious creamy gravy! Made as written and I also used 2 teaspoons of Better Than Bouillon Beef Base added to 2 cups of water and at the end added 1/2 teaspoon Gravy Master instead of the Kitchen Bouquet. Start to finish my gravy was thick and bubbly in less than 15 minutes. Thanks for posting this keeper, it will be made often. Made for the "Down on the Farm" Photo Tag 2012."
"Perfect! I made without the Kitchen Bouquet and added 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder and it was the best beef gravy I've ever had."
"Made this recipe today with several substitutions of convenience. I used 2 tbsp corn starch instead of flour, earth balance buttery spread instead of butter, as two other reviewers did I also used bouillon instead of beef broth and Gravy Master instead of Kitchen Bouquet (may have overdone it on the Gravy Master). Since I was only cooking for myself the amount in the recipe was far more than I needed, I used some of it to flavor some ground beef I was making before the thickening stage. It was great for everything! Probably would have been thicker if using flour but it worked for my purposes. Will definitely make it again."
" I followed this recipe last night when I made liver and onions, adding the cooked onions into the gravy. My adult son raved about how good the gravy was and stated "this is the kind of gravy I would like on french fries", not knowing about your introduction!! Thank you so much!!"
"Delicious and super simple to make. I'd never before made homwmade gravy but will be doing so again...so much better than those store boufht packages!"
"Yep! That's it! Needed a refresher. Perfect! Thanks"
"On 5/30/12 I was making Recipe #243562 and wanted to make gravy,so remembering Papa D's wonderful photos of this recipe, I decided to try it. And I'm so very glad I did. :) I didn't have beef broth, so two beef bouillon cubes were dissolved in two cups of boiling water was used.And as Papa D, Gravy Master was used instead of Kitchen Bouquet. If you try this recipe and use bouillon cubes, I would suggest you taste the gravy before adding the salt( I learned the hard way :) ). Thank you for posting a recipe that will certainly be made again. " Keep Smiling :) ""
"I test tasted it before using it for wet burritos and it was very good. Cannot wait to make and use it for other dishes. Thank you."
"Nice basic gravy - I've used the recipe several times (I also used the basic idea to thicken a casserole!) I have added a few extras - a bit of tomato paste, red wine, port etc. whatever the main dish called for. Thanks for posting."
"This gravy was very well received at my house and most importantly saved me from another trip to the store! I didn't have any Kitchen Bouquet but we didn't miss it. Thanks for posting!"
"This was very good, I used 2 beef boullion cubes with 2 cups of water, sauted some onions and used this over hamburger steak..yummo. This was a nice thick gravy that I really enjoyed. Will be using this recipe again. Thanks for posting"
"Thank you for saving dinner! I had intended to pick up a jar of gravy at the store as the recipe called for but I forgot. I also have never made homemade gravy before and needed a recipe without pan drippings. This fit the bill perfectly!"
"I've never made homemade gravy before and this turned out really delicious. Instead of the beef broth, I used 2 tsp of Better Than Boullion (beef) added to 2 c of water... I left out the Kitchen Bouquet since I don't have any in the house. I used this in Recipe #33665 and it really made a delicious sauce. I will be making this again for mashed potatoes... thanks for sharing!!!"
"very good! i use this gravy whenever i make garlicky mashed potatoes and (well... also garlicky) meatloaf, and the whole meal is a big hit around the house. i've taken to adding a bit of onion powder and a couple cubes of beef bouillon, as i've got a deadly penchant for salty foods, but hey... that's just me. anyhow, thank you for the recipe!"
"yum:D I love this gravy"
"We loved this over our mashed potato and sausages for dinner. I didn't have andy Kitchen Bouquet so I threw in a few other herbs and it was really good. Will definately use this recipe again!"
