Submitted by: SMYLEERED

Introduction

This gravy is delicious with any kind of meat or poultry. You won't want to buy canned or jarred gravy again because it's so easy and tasty. This gravy is delicious with any kind of meat or poultry. You won't want to buy canned or jarred gravy again because it's so easy and tasty.
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    3 Tablespoons margarine
    2 Tablespoons raw onion chopped
    2 Tablespoons unbleached white flour
    2 Teaspoons chicken boullion (I used Maggi chicken)
    2 cups of water

Directions

Make broth - 2 cups water and 2 tsps or 1 cube of bouillon -- you can use beef flavor boullion depending on what kind of meat it will accompany. Bring to a boil. Let stand while you saute the onions.

Saute the onions in a fry pan (I use a black cast iron pan)with 3 tablespoons of margarine. Add 2 tablespoons of flour to the onions and margarine mixture and stir with a wooden spoon continuously over low/medium heat til light brown. Be careful it burns easily.

Add the broth slowly to the fry pan while stirring after each addition until it becomes thickened.
Serve on mashed potatoes, beef pork or poultry - 1 tablespoon = 1 serving

  • I didn't have to make this dish to know that: 1 cup = 8 oz. 1 oz = 2 tbsp. So 1 cup = 16 tbsp and 2 cups = 32 tbsp. Does this have 32 servings? If there are 8 servings, then each serving is 1/4 cup (4 tbsp), and that is only taking the water into consideration. - 1/4/11
