Gravy Without Pan Drippings

The beauty of this recipe is that you can make it a day ahead; heat it back up on simmer in a saucepan and not have to be scrambling to make the gravy from the drippings at the last ditch minute ;-) This can be used for poultry or beef gravy.



  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 Tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 3 cups chicken, turkey or beef broth
  • spices to taste such as salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, paprika, and even cayenne powder or Tabasco sauce.


Melt butter with olive oil over medium heat in a medium saucepan, whisk in flour and stir until light brown.

Turn heat to medium high, gradually whisk in broth and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.

Reduce heat to low, add spices to taste and simmer 5 minutes, or until thickened to your liking.

Seems good Deeli. Personally, I like to just open a can from Walmart. Tastes just as good to me.
