Making your own brown gravy recipe is about the same amount of work as using a packaged gravy mix. But, the taste of this gravy recipe is so superior to those artificially flavored packets; you'll never want to use them again!
Makes 8 Portions of Brown Gravy
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 quart cold beef broth (as high-quality as possible!)
- salt and black pepper to taste
In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, until the mixture is golden-brown and smells like cooked pie crust. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Whisk in a cup of the cold beef broth, and then add the rest of the ingredients, except the salt and pepper.
Bring to a simmer, whisking, and then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste, and season with salt and pepper.
