This is a good basic recipe. I have been making gravy this way for years the only thing I do differently is I use bacon and fry it and not only use the drippings but I fry the bacon pretty crispy and crumble it up and throw it in there too.
Turned out VERY GOOD as is and it was the first time I made gravy! I love gravy and this one was very good over mashed potatoes and beef. Although I think I might try to use beef stock next time for extra nutrients and flavour and see how that turns out I think this recipe works fine with just the water and tastes good. I was impressed.
Absolutely awesome! This was my very first attempt to making home made gravy from pan drippings... and it was delicious! My hunny said it was better than his favorite gravy that his mom makes - that should be another rating in itself!!! Thanks D! It's delish!
The gravy was a little thin so I almost doubled the flour used 3 T. grease from roast as pr. recipe and 2 cups of the liquid from roast. My husband doesn't like any gravy except chicken and really loved this. Thanks for the simple yet taste recipe.
Like a previous user said I started with bacon drippings and it was FANTASTIC! I did 1 1/2 the recipe and made 1/3 of the liquid milk instead of water to give it creaminess. Incredible! I'll admit I added a few extra things like some black pepper about 6 drops of hot pepper sauce and a little powdered beef stew seasoning and gravy thickener because I was worried it would be too thin. In the end it was phenomenal and the texture was perfect. Like another previous user I also knew the ingredients but not the proportions and this one was right on the money! I also got my kids to taste it as supper is still a couple of hours away and they LOVED it!-- Simple and delicious--it would be hard to go wrong with this recipe as a base. Keep in mind the liquid boils out so if you want a full two cups of gravy change the recipe to say '3 servings' instead of 2. Enjoy!
My boyfriend has been craving a gravy like this and this was perfect. I used chicken drippings - perfect - I knew what I needed but wasn't sure what proportions to use. This was exactly what I was looking for thanks!!!
Pretty good. Not the country style gravy I was going for. Instead of 4 cups water I did 2 cups water 1 cup milk and 1 cup buttermilk. I had to add cornstarch to thicken it up to my liking and added more salt and pepper. My dinner guests added more salt to it during dinner.
