1 Good Eats Roast Turkey
24 ounces reduced-sodium chicken broth (this is in addition to the pan drippings)
8 ounces red wine
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs, oregano, thyme or rosemary
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Remove the turkey from the roasting pan, cover loosely with foil and set aside to rest.
Place the pan over medium heat and add the broth and wine at the same time. Whisk to combine and deglaze the bottom of the pan. Once all of the bits have come off the bottom of the pan, cook in order to reduce slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the liquid to a fat separator and allow to sit for 5 minutes to allow fat to separate. Return the fat to the roasting pan and place over medium-high heat. Add the flour and whisk to combine. Cook, whisking continuously until the mixture starts to thicken and become smooth, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Once this happens gradually add the liquid back to the pan and whisk until smooth and you have reached your desired consistency, approximately 5 to 6 minutes. Add the herbs and whisk to combine. Remember, your gravy should be slightly thin in the pan as it will thicken once you serve it.
