  • 1/4-1/3 cup meat drippings
  • 1/4+ cup flour
  • 2 cups Kosher beef stock or broth
  • 1 shallot, chopped optional
  • 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 6 ounce box of mushroom cleaned and cut in half optional


  1. After removing beef from pan, pour the drippings in to a bowl. Measure out 1/4 cup of the drippings. Put the roasting pan on the stove. Put the 1/4 cup drippings into the pan, and add the shallot and the flour. Cook on low heat stirring constantly. When the flour is a light brown and the shallot is softened, gradually add the beef broth.
  2. Stirring constantly, try to get any of the brown bits from the bottom of the pan into the mixture. Add the mushrooms and bring this to a boil. When the broth and flour mixture is smooth, taste the gravy and make any adjustments to the seasonings. Remove from the heat and serve with the meat.
