Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Pour drippings (juice and fat) from roasting pan carefully into heatproof measuring cup or fat separator. Let stand until fat rises to the top.
  • Remove 1/4 cup of the fat; return to roasting pan. Discard any remaining fat. Add enough water or broth to remaining drippings to measure 2 cups.
  • Gradually add flour to drippings mixture; stirring constantly with wire whisk until well blended.
  • Return drippings mixture to roasting pan over two burners. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 to 10 min. or until slightly thickened, stirring frequently.
  • Season to taste with pepper; stirring lightly with wire whisk.

Cooking Know-How

Stir gravy with a wire whisk or wooden spoon. If using a roasting pan to make gravy, a flat whisk or a flat edge wooden spatula allows you to reach the corners of the roasting pan easier.

Special Extra

Stir in 1 to 2 tsp. MAXWELL HOUSE Instant Coffee along with the salt and pepper to enhance the flavor and color of the gravy.

Perfect Meat Gravy

Substitute drippings from cooked meat for turkey and beef broth for chicken broth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like to consider myself a pretty good gravy maker, but this one was great! I like to consider myself a pretty good gravy maker, but this one was great! Instead of adding chicken broth or water to increase stock to 2 cups, I used milk. It made the gravy just a little creamier. The carrots,celery and onions as a bed for th turkey did make for a great flavored stock. I will certainly make it again!

I have always struggled with lumpy gravy or thin gravy. This recipe was easy to do, and it really did turn out perfect! It does take some time to stir so it does not burn, so save about 10 minutes to make it right before serving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is perfect. This recipe is perfect. I've tried many others from family members and this one works so well, plus it's easy. You might want to at least double it to serve about 10. I just used a non-stick frying pan and it turned out well too. Definately use chicken broth instead of water.

Why doesn't the cook know that you should cook the flour with the fat in the roaster for a minute or two to eliminate that uncooked flour taste? Only then do you add the liquid and cook until it is thickened.
