The Technique

Roasted Garlic Beef Gravy

There are many ways to make a rich, beef gravy & although it’s wonderfully delicious with the pan drippings collected from a recipe of Classic Beef Pot Roast, broth, stock or consommé may be used in place of them. Season the mixture well with pepper, fresh herbs, a dried bay leaf or two & the like but sprinkle with a smattering of salt during the last little bit of cooking time when it may be sampled as too much will ruin it. Once the gravy thickens, pour it through a wire mesh sieve set over a measuring cup if an ultra luscious & smooth consistency is desired, however it’s not necessary. Learn how to roast garlic if you plan to prepare the gravy for other uses besides being served with a traditional oven roast.
