  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups pan drippings liquid If you don't have a full two cups, supplement with broth.
  • .25 teaspoon pepper add more or less to taste
  • .25 teaspoon salt add more or less to taste


  1. In a saucepan melt three tablespoons of butter.

  2. Stir in flour to butter and let brown for one minute, stirring frequently. This creates what's called a roux.

  3. Add pan drippings and any extra broth to butter and flour mixture. Use a whisk to distribute the flour evenly within your liquid to avoid lumps.

  4. Add salt and pepper, tasting your gravy. Add more pepper or salt a little bit at a time to your own taste.

  5. Allow gravy to cook for three to four minutes. Pour into a bowl and enjoy with your dinner!

Recipe Notes

This recipe makes about a cup and a half of gravy, which equals a serving size of a quarter cup of gravy per person. Our family prefers just a little gravy on our meal. If your family prefers a heavier pour of gravy, I'd recommend doubling the recipe.
