    It was extremely easy. I had to use more broth than is called for, though. It did turn out great! - 10/2/12

  • This needs A LOT more broth than it calls for and it just doesn't have the flavor I was expecting. I'd say maybe I didn't follow the instructions properly, but it was kind of hard to mess that up. It just wasn't what I was expecting/hoping for. I'd add pepper, too. Give it a bit more flavor. - 10/4/15

  • I'm sorry, but 8 oz of broth was not enough. Try 16 oz instead... - 8/21/14

  • Awesome recipe! I have had troubles for years with getting my gravy to thicken. This one worked fabulous, was actually a little too thick at first, wound up adding more broth just to get the right consistency. Thank you so much! - 8/20/13

  • this was so easy, i used this recipe in a pinch when i didnt have any gravy mix. i served it over mashed potatoes and it was a hit! i did add a little onion powder and pepper for a little more flavor but it would have been fine without any additions. i wll use the recipe for years to come. thankyou! - 1/20/13
