Smoking beef? Dont worry. now you can make gravy WITHOUT drippings!.
- 4 cups beef broth or stock
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
In a medium saucepan, add the beef broth or stock, and heat until warm. NOTICE: You only need to heat the broth or stock until it is steaming and comfortable. In a large skillet melt the butter. Sprinkle the flour over the butter and whisk together. Continue cooking and whisking until the flour has become brown. Stirring constantly, add warm broth or stock to the flour mixture one ladle at a time. TIP: Make the gravy thinner than you would like because it will thicken as it cools. You could also save some of the broth from making the gravy in advance to reheat. Add salt and pepper.
