We’re talking about a simple, 10 minute recipe for the perfect beef broth gravy, just in time for Turkey Day!!!!  In full disclosure I meant to share this recipe with you a few weeks ago and it sort of slipped my mind… better late than never. And really it’s not even late, because Thanksgiving hasn’t come and gone quite yet.

Also struggling with the idea that TD is THIS week. As in…. three days from now. My mind has been stuck in the first week of November and now I’m trying to catch up mentally. And emotionally. Because this season is getting away from me.

This simple homemade gravy recipe is as easy as they come. Just five ingredients to make the perfect gravy with beef broth. If you happen to be making a beef roast, you can substitute the drippings from the roast, but so many times I want beef gravy and am not making a roast so this how I get it without using beef drippings.

I love this recipe because it is quick to make – just 10 minutes! – and comes together with just a few basic ingredients I always keep stocked in my pantry so I never have to rush out to the store to get anything just for this one part of the meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Hi it okay if use beef stock instead of beef broth ?

    Yes that works just fine!

Had a little too much worcestershire sauce for me.

    It does say “optional”

For my version I substitute 2 cups of red wine and 2 crumbled beef bouillon cubes for the beef broth, replace the worcestershire sauce with low sodium soy sauce and add 3 tbsp heavy cream with the corn starch/water slurry. Before adding those, let the half finished sauce boil a little longer to evaporate the alcohol and reduce it slightly. What can I say, I like cooking with wine, and sometimes put it into the food too.

    Sounds good. But You SHOULD make your own recipe PAGE, since it’s quite different.

    This sounds so good. I love cooking with wine also. I’ve used teriyaki sauce instead of soy sauce. Yummmm.

    Goood suggestion. I am goinG THAT ROUTE

Too much garlic for my taste and I reduced it to 3 teaspoons when doubling recipe

This is basically the recipe I’ve used for years, but I add a thickener to it — too runny as-is. I used to use flour/roux or corn starch. Now that I’ve gone low-carb, I use a tiny bit of a low-carb thickener – not enough to get gummy, but enough to make it feel like gravy and not just seasoned broth.

This is a great recipe I used 2 cups of Au jus instead of beef broth it turned out to be best gravy I ever made:)

This is very good. I mixed in some browned ground beef and green peas and served it over rice. Nice comfort food. It’s a regular in our rotation!

    Those are great ideas! Sounds delicious. I love hearing when one of my recipes become part of a family rotation! So happy that you love it!! Thanks for sharing, Bobi!

Loved it saved my dinner tonight best brown gravy I’ve had in a while

    Hi Kyle! “Saved your dinner” cracked me up! So happy it turned out great for you!

Unless your a BIG fan of garlic cut back on the 2 teaspoons. It’s a good gravy but next time I’ll omit the garlic completely

I’ve never made my own gravy before. I used beef STOCK and added a Mediterranean blend of spices plus the WOrstcheshire sauce and the corn . my kids Raved about it and asked for seconds!! Thank you for this easy recipe!

    Kid approved- Yes! You can’t beat that, right? Way to go! Thanks for your feedback, Denise!

I made this for the first time and it will definitely be my go to brown gravy recipe!
Thanks!

    This makes me so excited! Thanks for your feedback, Tonya!

I followed the recipe exactly, and not only did it not turn into gravy (it didn’t thicken with the corn starch), but it was very bland. I ended up having to double the cornstarch and the salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. It was ok, but I’ll keep looking for a better gravy recipe. Thanks.
Ps. I’m not yelling, my capslock isn’t on and yet my comments are in all caps. Sorry.)

    Thanks for your feedback, Juli!
