Truck Stop Gravy

Truck Stop Gravy created by Nif_H

Another golden oldie recipe from a handwritten recipe card from 1960. A simple combination of beef broth and mushroom soup. You can serve it with meatloaf or hamburger patties for hot hamburger sandwiches. Or just top some french fries for 'chips and gravy'. Or use it to make hot beef, hot chicken or turkey sandwiches with leftovers. Slice cooked meat, place on a slice of bread, pour gravy on top. Add seasonings to taste.

    This recipe saved a cheap cut of meat! I made exactly as posted to be true to the recipe, but really wanted to add the mushrooms. As another reviewer suggested, I'd reduce the broth to make the gravy thicker. It was also very light colored.....I've never used a browning agent, but might for this just to help it a bit. I'll also try it with chicken and chicken broth. Enjoyed this easy recipe immensely. Thanks so much for sharing!

    This is a great gravy! I will cut down on the broth a bit next time - we like gravy a bit thicker. This was great on rice with Recipe #330299 and a side of veggies. I like how versatile this recipe is, like others mentioned. You can add any veggies and it would really be good on any meat. Yum! Made for PRMR tag game. Thanks foodtvfan! :)

    Great country stlyle gravy recipe! Hearty and sticks to your ribs! This is beefs best friend! Makes a great base gravey which can be tweaked to suit. I made it as written, but added Kitchen Boquet to darken it up. Next time I will try the "fresh onion and/or mushroom treatment", and maybe a splash of marsala or sherry to kick it up a notch - "BAM"! I will also be trying to make this gravy for poultry too, however subsitute chicken broth and cream of chicken soup.
