Clear Meat Gravy?My mom used to make a ground beef gravy, but it was not a dark or white gravy. I would consider it a 'clear' gravy, and quite basic. Maybe some juice from browned hamburger, onion, garlic, water? It was not a thick gravy, but not completely runny either, from what I remember. She would make this meat gravy and put it on mashed potatoes. Anyone have any suggestions? (This was back in the late 60's early 70's and used as budget-wise main meal.) Thank you.
