You would have been better off saying that than calling him a welsh git and storming out of the room
I don't even know where gravy comes from. I complain about everyone else being passive consumers but when there's gravy in front of me, I lose control. It could come from clubbed seals in the Arctic and I could care less.Originally posted by BigBadBaldy
I make the best gravy in the world.
My Grampa taught me how.
..easy, you sick fucks!
Omg, I was just thinking about going to Dominion to get gravy. Save me some.Originally posted by BigBadBaldy
Real gravy is usually made from the pan juices of whatever you're roasting (beef, chicken, turkey, etc). Some of the fat is skimmed off, a bit of flour added and cooked down as a thickening agent, some wine, salt, pepper, herbs, a bit of butter,either stock (if available) or water simmer for a little while et VOILA! GRAVY! If no onions/carrots/potatoes have been roasted with the meat, you may want to sautee some minced onion and garlic in the initial stages.
You can also make gravy without roasting anything, but the stock is essential in this process. For instance, I make a nice fig gravy to accompany either roasted chicken or fish which contains shallots, garlic, dried figs, roux (cooked oil/flour, for thickening and a nutty flavour (depending on how long you cook it)) white wine, s/p and chicken stock. Herbs if desired.
Turkey gravy is the best, though. Nothing like turkey gravy and mashed potatoes! YUMMY!
Fuck, now I think I'm gonna go buy a can of shitty beef gravy and make some mashed potatoes.
