Just say no to CANNED Gravy

Just say NO

Image result for just say no

to canned gravy

here’s how.

get some stock going (chicken or beef depending on what you roasted) I use kitchen basics unsalted

you want it super hot but not boiling

In a fresh pot:

Take several TBS of light flavored olive oil(does just as good as butter )

but if you have drippings(the oil and browned bits in the pan you roasted your turkey or beef in)

you can use those instead

into the pot it goes

brown up 2 TBS flour

add 1 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp lawry’s seasoned pepper

(love this I add it to many casseroles and soups)

1/4 tsp garlic powder

cook this till the flour mixture is browned…watch carefully it can start to burn quick if the heat is too high

once the oil mixture is browned slowly add in the stock a little at a time using a whisk

add the hot liquid slooooooowly

adding just enough till you get to the desired consistency

add salt to taste

then….taste and make sure it’s right

strain if needed though if you whisk carefully there should not be lumps

——————————————

prefer a darker color?  add a few tsp of instant espresso powder or

a chunk of safe beef or “non beef” bouillon

again I prefer unsalted products so I can add salt to our tastes not super salted like so many pre-made products

now who doesn’t love a great homemade gravy

enjoy
