Gravy

Gravy is easy to make, as long as you properly measure your ingredients and carefully follow instructions. Gravy can be used to complement mashed potatoes, rice and meats including steak and pork chops. The basic gravy ingredients are flour, butter or another fat such as olive oil or bacon grease, and a liquid such as broth, stock or milk. For basic meat gravies such as beef or chicken, bouillon cubes can be used to make the broth for your gravy.

Add flour to the butter, 1 tbsp. at a time, whisking after each with a wire whisk after each addition to blend out any lumps. Step 3 Leave the heat on medium-low. Cook butter and flour for about 5 or 10 minutes, whisking often, until the mixture is light brown. This mixture is called a roux. Step 4 Turn heat to low. Add the prepared bouillon broth to the roux, using a small ladle. Whisk the mixture after each ladle of broth is added to ensure that no lumps form. After all of the broth is added and ingredients are wellincorporated, turn the heat up to medium-high. Allow the gravy to come to a boil, whisking constantly. Whisk boiling gravy for one minute to thicken. Remove from heat. Step 5 Taste gravy with a small spoon. Add salt and pepper or herbs to taste. Serve over white rice or mashed potatoes, or on meat.
