There's nothing better than this rich, tasty homemade gravy recipe. drizzle it over your meat and potatoes at dinner time!
Most people simply open a packet mix and add some water to make gravy. However, homemade gravy tastes better, only takes a couple of minutes to make and once you've tried it, you'll never eat store-bought gravy again.
No matter what type of meat you're cooking, your homemade gravy recipe will get it's lovely rich taste from the fat off the meat you're using.
This means the gravy you make will be dependent on the quality of the meat you're cooking.
If you're cooking a roast beef or a nice piece of steak, keep some of the meat juices and fat aside to make the best gravy you've ever tasted.
After cooking chicken, keep aside 2 tablespoons of chicken fat and juices to make your gravy.
There's something wonderful about treating yourself to ham and red eye gravy for breakfast. After you've cooked a couple of slices of ham to a nice brown in a little butter, remove the ham and use the juices to make a great red eye gravy.
If you like onion gravy with your meat, then cook 1/2 sliced onion in a little olive oil until the onion turns golden. Then add the onion to the homemade gravy recipe for a lovely tangy gravy.
You might prefer a lovely pepper gravy with your meat. Add some whole black peppercorns to your gravy for texture and grind peppercorns into the gravy to suit your tastes.
