  • Pour drippings (juice and fat) from roasting pan carefully into heatproof measuring cup or fat separator. Let stand until fat rises to the top.
  • Remove 1/4 cup of the fat; return to roasting pan. Discard any remaining fat. Add enough water or broth to remaining drippings to measure 2 cups.
  • Gradually add flour to drippings mixture; stirring constantly with wire whisk until well blended.
  • Return drippings mixture to roasting pan over two burners. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 to 10 min. or until slightly thickened, stirring frequently.
  • Season to taste with pepper; stirring lightly with wire whisk.

Special Equipment Needed

Cooking Know-How

Stir gravy with a wire whisk or wooden spoon. If using a roasting pan to make gravy, a flat whisk or a flat edge wooden spatula allows you to reach the corners of the roasting pan easier.

Special Extra

Stir in 1 to 2 tsp. MAXWELL HOUSE Instant Coffee along with the salt and pepper to enhance the flavor and color of the gravy.

Perfect Meat Gravy

Substitute drippings from cooked meat for turkey and beef broth for chicken broth.
