Homemade Gravy Recipe

Making beef gravy from scratch (or any other type of gravy for that matter) has become a bit of a lost art. If you find yourself buying jar after jar of gravy at the store, or making it from one of those little powder mixes, I encourage you to give the homemade gravy recipe below a try. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to make. It is delicious over mashed potatoes. Brown some hamburger meat, make a batch of gravy and serve it on toast for a fast and inexpensive weekday dinner. Or make a batch of gravy to go with that roast you’re cooking.

You can change this gravy to chicken or turkey by simply changing the beef broth to chicken or turkey broth.  If you are a vegetarian, you can also switch the beef broth to vegetable broth. You may need to use a little more seasoning depending on your taste.

If you don’t want to make the gravy from scratch using butter and broth, try this homemade brown gravy mix recipe. I keep a batch in my pantry.
