5 Minute, 5 Ingredient, 5 Star Homemade Brown Gravy


Moms, dads, working men and women:  there just never seems to be enough time.  Some days you are just short on time for dinner, and you need simple, fast and flavorful.  That is the exact time to make this 5-5-5 Gravy.  Perfect for any dish that calls for brown or beef gravy.  I use it on Munchkin Meatballs served over egg noodles, roasts, meatloaf and time I any need brown gravy quick I pull out this recipe.  It is delicious!

It is thick, full flavored gravy and only takes 5 minutes to prepare.  The recipe calls for ingredients that virtually everyone has on hand at all times and it tastes awesome!  We love it and I am sure you will too!

5 Minute, 5 Ingredient, 5 Star Brown Gravy
makes about 2 cups
¼ cup butter
¼ cup flour
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 cups water
4 teaspoons beef bouillon granules

Combine water and bouillon in a heat proof container (I use my glass measuring cup). Heat the beef broth in microwave 1 minute at a time, until it is steaming hot.

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat, add flour and onion powder and whisk together.  Allow to cook for 1 minute, whisking occasionally (this helps cook out the ‘floury’ taste).  Add beef broth to flour mixture and whisk.  Bring to boil, reduce to simmer for 1 minute.

Serve and enjoy!

    1. KK I do not cook gluten free. But, I think a gluten free flour may work better. Hope that helps.

    2. You can substitute cornstarch for flour yes..... BUT remember the consitency is very different. Cornstarch is much thicker so I would cut it down to 1/2 of what you would use flour and add in from there. Gluten free flour would make it easy for conversion purposes but if cornstarch is on hand, it will work just fine. I use cornstarch in almost all my recipes asking for flour IF it's just a thickener.

    1. I just had to do the same thing as chicken bouillon was all I had on hand and it was perfect! I can't wait to try it the next time with beef bouillon.

  7. I do not have any beef boullion granules. Do you think that that Knorr Homestyle Stock would work (As you have to add the "cube" to 2 cups water anyway)?

  10. For those w/sodium issues always have low sodium chicken, beef & vegetable broth or stock in pantry or (best: make your own & freeze it for when you need it) and use the stock instead of water and boullion. No msg and not nearly as much sodium. win-win :-).
