directions

  • NOTE: Use beef, chicken, or turkey, and broth can be mixed with pan drippings.
  • Heat broth.
  • 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).
  • Slowly add broth, stirring constantly with a whisk.
  • Add spices, cook slowly, stirring often, for 20 minutes.
  • The cooking time is very important. Flour will have a bitter taste if not completely cooked. This is worth the time.
  • 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.
