Directions

  1. Melt 1/2 of the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until translucent, about 5 minutes. Heat remaining butter in skillet over medium heat; whisk in flour to form a thick paste. Continue cooking, whisking constantly, until flour has turned golden brown and begins to smell toasted, about 20 minutes.
  2. Whisk water, beef bouillon, and chicken bouillon into skillet until no lumps remain. Add pepper and bring mixture to a boil. Cook and stir until thickened to gravy consistency, 8 to 10 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • The best way to make a good roux is to use a whisk and make sure the butter does not burn.

This is a great, easy base recipe if you don't have meat drippings. I made it quicker (I was on a time crunch) by not browning the thick onion/butter/flour paste and it still ended up nice. I di...

Well, we haven't had KFC in quite a while, but we thought this was pretty darn close to their gravy...we loved it! Very easy to make and tastes a lot better than packet/packaged gravy. I did hal...

It's an OK basic brown(ish) gravy, but has nothing to do with what KFC has for gravy. If you added some powdered or ground poultry seasoning it might get closer. As to browning time for flour,...

Tastes just like kfc gravy

The directions are not very good. I followed them and ended up with up with a gravy that tasted burnt. I had even stopped 5 minutes early. I had whisked the flour continually but the timing seem...
