Boone's Best Gravy - The Golden Gravy Ratio
homemade-organic-mashed-potatoes-with-gr

A quick, simple gravy to pour over meat, rice, steamed vegetables, scrambled eggs, potatoes, sourdough bread, and more. Just remember the Golden Gravy Ratio: 1 TBS fat, 1 TBS flour, 1 cup liquid of your choice. Get creative and make the gravy your family likes best.

  • 4 TBS traditional fat (butter, ghee, bacon grease)

  • 4 TBS flour (rice flour if gluten-free)

  • 4 cups bone broth

  • salt

  • pepper

 

In a 12-inch cast iron skillet, melt 4 TBS traditional fat: butter, ghee bacon grease, chicken or beef fat, or drippings from pork sausage.

When liquid and bubbly, add in 4 TBS of a ground thickener. We prefer rice flour, but gluten or non-gluten flours work just as well. Stir flour and fat constantly until flour is browned and evenly bubbly.

Pour into pan slowly, a total of 4 cups liquid: all bone broth, or broth mixed with milk, water, or any leftover veggie juices.

Keep heat high enough to bring gravy to a boil and to reduce liquids and thicken. Continue to stir as it cooks.

This is a good time to add your seasonings. Salt and pepper work well enough. We also like a mixture of garlic powder and onion powder. Season to taste.

Cook until desired thickening, about 10 to 15 minutes; remove from heat, and pour into a small pitcher. This encourages your eaters to be generous with this delicious, satiating treat. Pour over meat, rice, steamed vegetables, scrambled eggs, potatoes, sourdough bread, etc.
