You don't need a recipe when you have this formula. The fat can be crisco, butter, oil, or the fat from your pan drippings. The liquid can be water, broth, milk, the juice from the pan drippings or any flavorful liquid. When I make pan gravy, I pour all of the drippings into a shallow bowl and wait for the grease to rise to the top, so you can seperate the fat from the liquid for measurements. Pan gravy is best made in the pan that the meat was cooked in. All of that brown stuck on stuff adds flavor and gives gravy its golden color. So no more gravy mixes, or heaven forbid, canned gravy for you!
