Brown Gravy (for Roast Beef)

Brown Gravy (for Roast Beef)

2 cups water
2 teaspoons beef bouillon (or more to taste)
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder


2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water


2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons flour


Boil all ingredients in a pot together, except for thickener.

Once the mixture boils, mix the cold water + cornstarch / oil + flour into a slurry / paste in a small bowl. You may need to add a tiny bit more water, but it should be the consistency of runny glue with cornstarch, and a paste with the flour.

Slowly pour in thickener, while stirring. Continue boiling for 2-3 more minutes, still stirring. If you're using flour and oil, simmer at least 5 minutes to be sure the flour cooks. Remove from heat and let cool to thicken more.
