“This is how i make my brown gravy, and my fiance loves it this way. I hope you enjoy it too :) Mine tends to be more runny sometimes, so feel free to add more cornstarch slurry or use whatever thickening method you like. Sometimes I throw a little paprika in too, and this could easily be changed to make a chicken gravy simply by omitting the kitchen bouquet and using chicken bouillon. Also, sometimes I start the gravy by cooking the flour in the oil a little first then slowly adding water, then seasonings. Sorry for so much detail, just want everyone to know how easy it is to make yummy gravy from scratch :)”

Directions

  1. Boil all ingredients in a pot together, except for thickener.
  2. Once the mixture boils, mix the cold water + cornstarch / oil + flour into a slurry / paste in a small bowl. You may need to add a tiny bit more water, but it should be the consistency of runny glue with cornstarch, and a paste with the flour.
  3. Slowly pour in thickener, while stirring. Continue boiling for 2-3 more minutes, still stirring. If you're using flour and oil, simmer at least 5 minutes to be sure the flour cooks. Remove from heat and let cool to thicken more.
