DIRECTIONS

  • Variations: Add fresh sliced mushrooms, or onions, or hot pepper flakes, or any special spice to create a foreign flavor such as cummin or curry.
  • This is a basic recipe to making gravy for any type of oven-roasted meat.
  • In a small bowl, add water and flour, stirring to get out all lumps.
  • Remove meat from the roasting pan leaving all the liquid and dried bits.
  • On the stovetop, over a low heat, add water to pan drippings, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, dissolving all the flavors from the bottom of the pan.
  • As the liquid thickens, add salt, pepper, and spices, including the gravy master.
  • If gravy is too thick, add more water, a little at a time while stirring.
  • Stop at the desired thickness.
  • Remove from the heat.
  • Pour gravy through a strainer to remove any lumps, debris that did not dissolve.
  • Fill your favorite gravy boat and serve!
  • *If gravy is too thin, add 1 teaspoons of flour at a time (again, diluted in 1/4 cup of cold water) until the desired thickness is achieved.
  • Amount will depend on how much liquid is in your roasting pan after meat has cooked.
  • By adding more water and adjusting the flavorings, you could s-t-r-e-t-c-h this recipe to accommodate the servings required, but be careful not to lose the richness of the meat flavor.
