I am not sure I ever tried to make gravy before. Sounds like the start of a bad story, but it is where I was a little while ago. Normally, I would buy jarred or canned gravy. The other day, we were reheating some of our new Chicken Pot Pie, and it needed something extra. So I looked a few recipes online - did not find anything I wanted, so I played a bit. This is actually the second time I made it - but I forgot to write down the recipe. So I had to build it out again. It came out great and I am sure we will make it again when the need strikes. You can even make this vegetarian by using vegetable broth. It is a fast and easy sauce to add to dinner!
Ingredients (Serves 6-8)
4 tbsp Flour
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp Savory (dried)
1/2 tsp Parsley (dried)
1/4 tsp Black pepper
3 tbsp Butter
2 cups Chicken or vegetable broth
1. In a small bowl, mix flour, Kosher salt, savory, parsley and black pepper.
2. In a small pan over medium-high heat, add butter and cook until melted.
3. Add flour mix to pan and mix until it becomes a well blended.
4. Slowly add the broth and stir regularly. Cook for 9-10 minutes until thickened.
