Perfect Brown Gravy – Every Time! As an ode to my hubby, I thought I’d pass along my recipe for the perfect brown gravy! He LOVES to eat hot open faced roast beef sandwiches with mashed potatoes or french fries so I’ve had to perfect my brown gravy. Because, no one should have to eat it out of a can or a jar. It’s way too simple to make, and is much more yummy. You can also make chicken gravy by substituting beef broth with chicken broth.
I adapted this recipe from THE JOY OF COOKING and have been making it for more years than I care to remember. Its fast and easy.... fast and easy enough to be able to make a 2nd batch in the middle of dinner b/c folks scarfed up the first batch! NOTE: Im not sure how 1-2 TEAspoons of Worcestershire got changed to 1-2 TABLEspoons.... which is way too much! Ive changed the recipe back to 1-2 TEAspoons of Worcestershire.
