How to Make Spring Hill Ranch's Green Chile Country Gravy
- In a small saucepan over medium high heat, heat the lard until just below the smoking point. Add the minced onion and sauté them until they have softened and are beginning to turn golden around the edges (about 5 minutes).
- Whisk in the flour until well combined. Continue whisking or stirring for a minute or two to cook out the raw flour flavor. Slowly whisk in the milk. Add the green chiles. Whisking constantly, bring the gravy to a boil to thicken it, then reduce the temperature to a simmer. Season the gravy with salt and pepper.
