Instructions Checklist
  • Melt the butter in a wok over medium heat. Add the onions, and fry until soft. Crumble in the ground beef; cook and stir until evenly browned. Push all of the beef and onion out to the sides, leaving a pool of butter in the center. Add the yeast spread to the pool, and mix until dissolved. Stir into the ground beef.

  • Mix in the paprika, and bouillon cubes. The mixture will start to become sticky and bind together. Mix in the water and gravy mix. It will be sticky at first. Just stir and bring to a simmer, and it is ready to serve.

As a person from the U.S. I've recently discovered the wonders of Marmite. This recipe is quite tasty. I followed the recipe pretty closely but had to add more butter because mine didn't pool in the bottom like it was supposed to. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I love marmite so decided to look for some recipes I could use it in. I liked this but it was a bit bland...I think next time I will use more marmite and see if that makes a difference. I will definitely make it again though. Read More

Mum used to make this all the time when I was a kid. I follow this recipe but add peas like she used to and I also omit the paprika. Husband can't stand Marmite but I love it. The gravy is delicious and goes great with carrots and mashed potatoes. This is wonderful comfort food; quick easy and inexpensive too. Thanks! Read More

I couldn't stand Vegemite alone on toast but my husband loves it so I thought I'd see if there was another way to eat it that would suit both of our tastes. With this recipe I'd eat the stuff regularly. My husband and I LOVED this - we served it with mashed potatoes and sweet peas and mixed everything together a bit on our plates. Wish I'd have thought to make bread to go with it - a crunchy French bread would have been fantastic. Read More

My British friend introduced me to marmite and I love it! I'm going to try this using Morningstar meatless crumbles or veggie burgers and mushroom bouillon and veggie gravy mix. I'll let you all know how it turns out. I'm so glad to see a recipe using marmite here. I always just have it on a bagel with butter but I'm sure there's plenty more I can do with it. Read More

Really liked the sound of this but I found it extremely salty (I used marmite I don't know if it would have been the same if I'd used vegemite). Might try it again with less marmite but doubtful. Read More
