Gluten Friendly*, Lactose, Nut, Egg and Soy Free
I never used to make pan gravy, what a waste. I actually didn't quite get the gist of it, so left it alone. I had a go one night after cooking a delicious Black Angus Steak for myself. OMG. Why didn't I do this before. Mind you the gravy doesn't always work out. Once instead of spooning the GF flour I just got the bag and endeavoured to tip just the right amount in. FAIL! At least 1/8 of the flour from the bag went in the pan. I did try to save it but there was no gravy that night.
I don't pretend that my gravy is picturesque. Those black bits are the remnants of the roast onion I placed with the meat at the start of cooking. It's only used for extra flavour. The Your Inspiration at Home Smoked Orange, Garlic and Chilli Specialty Salt and Tuscan Style Pesto Dip Mix I generously applied at the start of cooking enhanced the taste of not only the meat but this gravy too. Make this while your meat is resting. Making gravy also makes it easier to clean the pan. Yay! Eat Simply Now. ~Kaz
- Pan juices left over from cooking a roast
- 1-2 tablespoons of gluten free corn flour or All purpose gluten free flour. (Plain for those who can tolerate gluten)
- 1-2 teaspoons of lactose free margarine. (Margarine or butter for people who can tolerate dairy)
- Water or vegetable water. (I blanch my veggie very quickly in water and use this for liquid)
- Extra salt and pepper
- Drain fat from the pan. It's important that you do this otherwise the gravy will be greasy and you don't want this. (I drain mine into a cup and then when it's cool, I tip it into a bag I have in the freezer. It makes it easier to dispose of)
- Place pan on top of gas cook top and light one or both front elements.
- Add 1-2 teaspoons of margarine to pan and melt.
- Add 1 tablespoon at a time of flour and stir together with margarine. Scrape up all the lovely roasty goodness your meat and veggies have left behind in the pan.
- Add water slowly and stir. It should start to thicken. Add enough water to get your desired gravy thickness. You may need to add a little more flour.
- Generously add more pepper to the gravy and potentially a little salt.
- Serve with your roast.
