1 Tbsp
medium to large grind fresh ground black pepper or more to taste
1 - 2 tsp
salt or to taste


1Melt butter
2Add flour and cook on medium low heat whisking or stirring for 5 or more minutes (this removes the raw taste from the flour). Don't brown the flour and butter this gravy is a white gravy.
3Pour liquid into butter/flour mix and bump heat up to medium. Stir until thickened. Turn heat off and cover to keep warm and to avoid the gravy skim that forms on top if left uncovered. If this happens just add a few tablespoons of milk or water and whisk until smooth again :)
