How to Make Oh so Versatile Sour Cream Sauce


  1. In a saute pan, make a roux with the flour and butter. Cook a minute or two to cook the flour.
  2. Add the beef stock and whisk into the roux heating until it bubbles and thickens. Season with salt and pepper. Take off the heat and whisk in the sour cream. Serve.
  3. Note: use chicken stock as an alternative, and any fresh herbs you like. Use chipotle peppers or other hot peppers to make a Southwestern sauce. Use on meatloaf, baked chicken, pork chops or roast. Add horseradish and use with rib roast. Add dill or chives and put over baked potatoes. Great over meatballs too. Use as a gravy for rice or noodles as a side. Just be as creative as you wish.
  4. You can increase this recipe by keeping the ratio of 1:1:1. One tablespoon flour to one tablespoon of butter to one cup of liquid. To double do 4 TBSP flour, to 4 TBSP butter to 4 c liquid.
