I made this today following the recipe exactly. It's good for what it is - gravy to use when you don't have the real thing. Would be acceptable with say meatloaf. Two things stand out for me: it took longer than 5 minutes to brown the flour and butter; getting it brown is crucial to the end colour of the gravy. Secondly next time I'd just add a drop or two at a time of the Worcestershire sauce at a time tasting as I go - the taste of it was too strong for me in the end product. Read More

It was very bland and seemed like something was missing. The ketchup was very overpowering. If I make it again I will use about half of it. I also added some onion powder and brown sugar for a little sweetness. Read More
