Good Gravy . . .
With Thanksgiving now right around the corner . . .
I've discovered that not everyone had a dad who taught them to make excellent gravy! I LOVE gravy at Thanksgiving, Sunday dinners and just about any old time.
Did you know it is SO EASY to make??!!
Here's the way I do it -
How to make gravy
Meat juice drippings (beef, chicken, turkey, pork)
(optional - for best results drippings should include browned bits
from the stock as well as turkey pieces)
Water - add water to drippings to equal 4 cups
Salt and pepper
3 heaping T of cornstarch
1/2 C. COLD water
(optional) 1T. chicken or beef bullion
In a large pan, pour measured drippings and water to equal 4 cups. Heat to low simmer or low boil over medium heat. Dissolve the cornstarch in the COLD water. Slowly whisk the cornstarch mixture into the simmering drippings.
Turn heat down to medium low - continue to whisk for 10-15 minutes until gravy thickens. Add salt and pepper to taste (1t salt, 1/2 t pepper approximately)
If gravy gets too thick, slowly whisk water back into the gravy mix.
