How To Make good meat or chicken gravy from drippings

  • 1
    After roasting remove your roast be it chicken, beef, ham, pork or turkey. Remove to a seperate plate or pan.
  • 2
    Add the two cups water to the drippings with a wire wisk stir the drippings up from the bottom of the pan. Season the mixture with a little salt, black pepper, garlic and onion powder. Note: If your meat was a baked ham then add only one cup of water and one cup of black coffee. This only if you are making a ham gravy. This is called Red Eye gravy. Put the pan on the heat and begin to heat the mixture.
  • 3
    To the heated mixture begin to sprinke your flour over the mixture and continue to stir with the wisk until it becomes the consistency of gravy. You may need to use a little more flour. Put your heat on medium and continue to stir until you have a nice gravy. You cannot use any other flour with this method other then the Gold Medal Wondra flour or a powdered flour made especially for gravies. If you do you will get lumps. If you want to add onions, or mushrooms saute in a seperate fry pan in a little oil your chopped onions and mushrooms then add to the gravy and simmer 10 minutes. If you have a lot of drippings you can add more water and more flour to make more then 2 cups of gravy. Of course you will have to adjust the seasonings. Most important make sure you cook your gravy a good ten minutes so the flour cooks good. Enjoy
