“So last night I baked some pork chops for dinner. I decided this was the perfect opportunity for trying out the Barefoot Contessa’s Homemade Gravy recipe. It was delicious…fattening, but delicious. Now, I comfort myself with the idea that we had baked pork chops, dry bread, green beans and instant potatoes (I should be ashamed, I suppose) so the gravy was my one indulgence. It was worth it.”

Directions

  1. In a large (10 to 12-inch) saute pan, cook the butter and onions over medium-low heat for 12 to 15 minutes, until the onions are lightly browned. Don’t rush this step; it makes all the difference when the onions are well-cooked.
  2. Sprinkle the flour into the pan, whisk in, then add the salt and pepper. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the hot chicken stock mixture and Cognac, and cook uncovered for 4 to 5 minutes until thickened. Add the wine and cream, if desired. Season, to taste, and serve.
