Honest? Gravy is easy!

Morag-you are sooooooooooo multi talented :D :wink:

Myself and the misses are making the point of getting out more-we have discovered this wee French place just down the road and the rib eye steak is delicious, she enjoys it with the old favourite peppercorn sauce -i have it with either

beef dripping Merlot gravy or Bordelaise gravy with bone marrow.
For me that is perfect Gravy... :D

Hi Brian.

Just down the road from where? Or are you deliberately not saying so that the place won't get overcrowded and spoil your evenings there. :(

JD.

No need to add flour. Just skim the fat, scrape everything else into another pot, add some broth or water, simmer, then drain it all through cheese cloth...voila.:) The gravy doesn't have to be thick...just flavourful! :)
Be kind. Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
