Homemade Gravy

  • Yield: 3 cups
Save Recipe

Ingredients

1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter

1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion (2 onions)

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 cups chicken stock, preferably homemade, heated

1 tablespoon Cognac or brandy

1 tablespoon heavy cream (optional)

Directions

  1. In a large (10- to 12-inch) saute pan, cook the butter and onions on medium-low heat for 12 to 15 minutes, until the onions are lightly browned. Don't rush this step; it makes all the difference when the onions are well cooked.
  2. Sprinkle the flour into the pan, whisk in, then add the salt and pepper. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the hot chicken stock and Cognac, and cook uncovered for 4 to 5 minutes, until thickened. Add the cream, if desired, and serve.
