Nothing is more comforting than ladling some homemade gravy over our food. This Back-to-Basics Brown Gravy is a cinch to prepare, and it beats bottled gravy hands down.
What You'll Need
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 3/4 cups beef broth
- 1 teaspoon browning and seasoning sauce
What to Do
In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter. Gradually add flour, whisking about 1 minute, or until well blended and lightly browned. Gradually add broth and browning and seasoning sauce, stirring constantly.
Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until smooth.
- Here are some options for things you can add along with the broth: For a richer, heartier gravy, add 1/4 cup spaghetti sauce. Or to add a simple touch of elegance, add 1/4 cup dry red or white wine. And for flavor variation, you could add 1 teaspoon of dried thyme, rosemary, or ground black pepper. Make it to suit your main course - and your favorite tastes!

- Don't forget the turkey! Our Butter-Basted Herbed Turkey is a great choice!
