Perfect Gravy Recipe

So what is actually gravy sauce? Basically, it is a sauce made of meat drippings, stock and some seasonings. That’s it. The essential ingredient of a perfect gravy is fat. If you roast Thanksgiving turkey, it releases a ton of fat that will be leftover in the roasting pan. Don’t through it away and use it for your gravy. Also, it takes only 15 minutes to make.



  1. Firstly, in a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Then whisk in flour and cook it until golden, for around 1 minute, next whisk in pan drippings. By the way, if you have more than a cup of drippings, then you can reduce the amount of broth.
  2. Secondly, bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer gently until it slightly thickened. 
  3. Thirdly, stir in fresh herbs and then whisk in broth and return it to a simmer. Add salt and pepper to taste. 
  4. Finally, simmer for around 10 minutes, continuously adding more broth if gravy looks too thick.

If you like it, pin it!
