    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.

    It's an amazingly simple recipe that packs a punch. Gorgeous thick gravy rich with flavor. I actually left out the kitchen gourmet and just used butter, flour and beef broth. It still turned out delicious. I will be using this as a staple in the future. Thanks for the recipe!

    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.

    Delicious! I used onion powder as someone suggested in lieu of kitchen bouquet, as I don't keep that on hand, and this is amazing! I made it to be the gravy in my homemade beef pot pie. A keeper for sure. Thank you for posting!

    Easy recipe that tastes fantastic. Followed the recipe, except I didn't have the Kitchen Bouquet - I subbed au jus concentrate instead. I will never have unadorned mashed potatoes again!

    Made to recipe except i substituted 1tsp of lipton onion soup for the kitchen bouquet. Poured it over meatloaf and mashed potatoes, whole family of 6 loved it. Will definitely be adding this to my recipe book.

    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.
